You’re correct, you will likely see him in a spring training game or two at some point. with 24 games still left on the schedule. Where Pirates fans should get a good look at him is the Altoona/Pirates game at the end of ST. He should be starting at 3B for Altoona that game and then during the regular season. I saw two of his AB’s last night, hit the ball well but right at someone each time. He looked real good turning that 5-4-3 DP early on that got Australia out of a bases loaded jam.
The third base position is empty for the Pirates in the minors. If he can show good defense, some power and good contact skills, he could move up the ladder. His first shot at AA last season went well, he held his own and it was also his first full season at 3B.

He finished the WBC going 3-10 with and was the only player for Team Australia to score. He scored both runs. I am not sure if that shows how good he is or maybe that Australia was that bad. Either way he will be headed back to Minor League camp and I can believe he will be invited to a spring training game at some point. It will be interesting to watch and see how he does this season. I was most impressed with his range on defense moving over and cutting off balls that were headed to the short stop to make a few great plays. Accurate arm and strong arm from third.
