When Pittsburgh grabbed Paul Skenes with the No. 1 pick in last year’s draft, it knew they were getting a player who could hang with the homies in Cooperstown. The LSU product dazzled at the collegiate level, befuddling batters on his way to winning the Dick Houser Trophy, National Player of the Year, and a National Championship in his final year with the Tigers in 2023. He then carved up Triple-A, continuing to flummox hitters as he posted a 0.99 ERA and 45 strikeouts in 27 1/3 innings. On Saturday, May 11, 2024, the generational talent takes the first time in the MLB when the Pirates meet the Cubs. Let’s check out some of his top Bowman cards in his young career.
