Comments on: Stetson Allie, Joely Rodriguez, and Orlando Castro to be Promoted to Bradenton http://www.piratesprospects.com/2013/06/stetson-allie-joely-rodriguez-and-orlando-castro-to-be-promoted-to-bradenton.html Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system.

Had he been a pitcher turned infield at UNC and put up a line of .324/.414/.607 line in 244 at-bats this year with 17 home runs, he likely would have been a first round pick, especially with the power potential he is showing.

Dude can really talk baseball.

We’ve already invested the $2.5M, might as well see if it turns into something.

There’s still some things like Harrison on the MLB club, Mercer as d’Arnaud’s backup at Indy, Mazzaro, etc. at Indy and so on. Didn’t know if that was difficult to do, whether those actually ARE the club’s official depth charts for some reason, etc.

No biggie, it’s just a great tool to help see whose at each level at any given point in time. As always, great stuff!

He’s not a very trade-able asset, but is a good one to own.

I’m more curious what is value is than anything. Could he be the centerpiece of a deal now, or does he have to carry it all the way to AA before he becomes attractive to other clubs?
