Today’s version of the Prospect Highlights takes a look at video of Gregory Polanco and Alen Hanson, two of the top hitting prospects in the system, along with Chris Dickerson, who continues his hot stretch in Triple-A. Also, some rare video from West Virginia.
The first video is of Polanco, who is a regular feature in this series of articles, legging out a triple.
Then there’s Chris Dickerson, who also tripled, continuing his impressive season. Dickerson has an .856 OPS this year, and could be a candidate for a call-up at some point during the season.
Alen Hanson has started off slow the first two weeks of the season for the past two years. Last year his bat woke up after that slow start. It looks like he could be doing the same this year, as he has a .286 average and a .785 OPS since around the second week of the season. Below is a video of him hitting his second homer of the year on Sunday afternoon.
There isn’t usually video from West Virginia, since those games aren’t usually televised. Today we have a clip of Reese McGuire getting a single. It’s not the biggest highlight, but it’s great to see something more than Indianapolis and Altoona in this spot.Pirates Prospects is FREE today in honor of the Wild Card game.
