Possibilities For Pirates At No. 4

The Pirates have the fourth pick in the June draft.  Who are they considering?

According to Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, GM Neal Huntington scouted pitcher Alex White, first baseman/outfielder Dustin Ackley, and catcher Tony Sanchez yesterday.  White and Ackley are considerations for the Bucs at #4, though Ackley has a good chance of being picked by the Mariners at #2.  Scott Boras will be advising Ackley and White.

In yesterday's mock draft, Baseball America projected righty Kyle Gibson as Pittsburgh's pick.  ESPN's Jason Churchill linked the Pirates to Ackley as well as pitchers Shelby Miller, Jacob Turner, Aaron Crow, and Tanner Scheppers.
