Indianapolis Indians 2011 Season Recap: Hitters

In the last two years we've seen the Pittsburgh Pirates graduate some top hitting prospects from Indianapolis, with Andrew McCutchen getting the call in 2009, and Neil Walker, Pedro Alvarez, and Jose Tabata coming up in 2010.  The 2011 season didn't have any flashy names, but we did see a lot of guys come up and fill holes in the majors, keeping the Pirates afloat in the standings up until the end of July.

The biggest standout this year was Alex Presley, who had sort of a surprising season if you didn't take his 2010 season as being legit.  The Pirates also saw Chase d'Arnaud, Josh Harrison, and Eric Fryer make their major league debuts this year, getting the call from Indianapolis.  Here is a run down of how each player at Indianapolis did this season.
