Pirates Prospects to Appear on ESPN 970 With David Todd On Wednesdays

ESPN 970David Todd of ESPN 970 will be hosting an hour-long segment called “The Lumber Hour” each Wednesday from 6-7 PM. The show focuses specifically on the Pirates each week. I was on the first episode of the show last week, and will be a regular guest appearing most Wednesdays to talk about the prospects in the minor league system.

You can hear my segment tonight around 6:30 PM. This week David and I discuss some of the players in Triple-A who could help the Pirates down the stretch. We focus on Brandon Cumpton, Andrew Lambo, Stolmy Pimentel, Matt Hague, Jerry Sands, and Chase d’Arnaud. We’ll also be doing a segment each week called The Spotlight. This week’s spotlight was on Vic Black, who could join the Pirates at some point this year, and who profiles as a potential future closer in the majors.

As I mentioned, I’ll be a regular on the show each Wednesday, probably appearing two out of every three weeks depending on how the schedules line up. I’ll be sure to post the link to the audio for those times that I’m on. Tonight’s segment will be around 6:30 and can be streamed live here. I’ll post the link to the audio when it becomes available later tonight.
