Willy Garcia started off the year looking over matched with a 29:1 K:BB ratio over his first 24 games but over the last 10 it has gotten much better at 11:3 and he is even hitting some with a .786 OPS.

Hanson, Polanco, and Osuna are all excellent prospects drafted on the International market and being developed from scratch by the Pirates. Polanco and Hanson are from the Dominican Republic as are current Bucs Starling Marte, Wandy Rodriguez, and Francisco Liriano.

.
Not thrilled with Cole or Kingham’s outings.
.
Bell and Allie each had a walk, so it wasn’t a wasted night for them?

He has raised his fielding pct above 92% along with a decent RF. An improvement to 95% would be passable in the majors.
