The Mets blog Seven Train To Shea posted an interview with Pirates shortstop prospect Jarek Cunningham the other day. The audio quality isn’t great, but it is worth the listen if you have time. Cunningham had a great start to his professional career, hitting .318/.385/.507 in 174 plate appearances after the Pirates took him in the 18th round of the 2008 draft. Unfortunately, he tore his ACL and missed the entire 2009 season. Cunningham was a potential steal in the ’08 draft, and that is still a good possibility despite the lost season.
