Nick Gonzales added to Pirates' player pool

The Pirates added 2020 first-round pick INF Nick Gonzales to their 60-man player pool.

Fantasy Impact

Gonzales will get some development time with the organization after being selected with the seventh overall pick in this year's draft. The 21-year-old appears to be Pittsburgh's second baseman of the future. He has a plus hit tool and is often compared to Keston Hiura of the Brewers.

Nick Gonzales signs with Pirates

Nick Gonzales inked a full-slot value deal with the Pirates Wednesday, worth nearly $5.5 million.

Fantasy Impact

The seventh overall pick out of New Mexico State has an above-average hit tool to go along with some power, so he could go through the minors quickly. Not known for his defense, he has a very similar profile to Keston Hiura.

Nick Gonzales selected No. 7 by Pittsburgh Pirates

The Pittsburgh Pirates have selected New Mexico State 2B Nick Gonzales with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2020 MLB Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Gonzales was announced as a shortstop, though most scouts think he'll wind up at second base. The bat is going to play either way. Gonzales hit a ridiculous .448 with a .610 OBP and 12 homers in 16 games before the college season was shut down. A career .399 hitter, it's fair to wonder how much of Gonzales' offensive success was due to his comfortable hitting environment at New Mexico State. The good news is he also impressed in the pitching-dominant Cape Cod League in 2019. A common comparison for Gonzales is Brewers second baseman Keston Hiura.
