Minor League Schedule: 6/20/11

For an in depth review of yesterday’s games please check out our minor league wrap-up which can be found here. Bradenton returns to play after a three day layoff for the FSL all-star break. Records in the FSL reset in the second half for playoff purposes. Altoona has off today, they return Tuesday night for a three game series in New Hampshire. West Virginia was rained out yesterday and is now on their all-star break. Their next game is Thursday night. The VSL team had off yesterday, they currently sit a 1/2 game behind the league leading Mariners team.

Stetson Allie makes his professional debut tonight starting for State College at home, and Tim will be there covering his performance for the site. The 20 year old righty was the Pirates 2nd round pick in the 2010 draft. He signed for $2.25 million, and reported to State College last year along with Jameson Taillon although neither pitched for the team, instead they participated in the Fall Instructional League in Bradenton following the minor league season.

Allie makes his pro debut today

Allie was ranked 4th overall in the 2010 Pirates Prospects guide due to his high ceiling as a pitcher. He has been clocked at 100mph and he has a plus slider that he throws in the high 80’s. He will be the 2nd of three top ten prospect arms signed in 2010 by the Pirates to make his debut this season. Down in the Gulf Coast League, the Pirates affiliate will begin their season today and although the date of his first game has yet to be announced, 16 year old phenom Luis Heredia will make his debut soon as well. The GCL teams don’t name starting pitchers ahead of time but it’s likely Heredia’s first game will be announced in advance due to his prospect status. Heredia was signed for $2.6 million last August out of Mexico during the July 2nd signing period.

John Dreker

John was born in Kearny, NJ, hometown of the 2B for the Pirates 1909 World Championship team, Dots Miller. In fact they have some of the same relatives in common, so it was only natural for him to become a lifelong Pirates fan. Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game. He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site. John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.
