The Pittsburgh Pirates today announced they have selected third baseman Ke'Bryan Hayes with the 32ND overall selection (compensation for Russell Martin signing with Toronto) in the 2015 First-Year Player Draft. The announcement was made by Pirates Director of Scouting Joe DelliCarri.

Hayes hit .436 (41-for-94) with 16 doubles, one triple, three home runs, 27 RBI and 12 stolen bases as a senior this year at Concordia Lutheran (TX) High School.

In addition, Hayes was a Perfect Game USA 2014 underclass first-team selection and 2013 underclass first-team selection. The right-handed hitting Hayes is also the son of former Major Leaguer Charlie Hayes, who played for the Pirates in 1996.
