Back in April of 2012, the Pittsburgh Pirates quietly signed right-handed pitcher Dario Agrazal Jr., who made his debut in the Gulf Coast League yesterday. Agrazal pitched in the DSL last year and had a perfect 6-0 record in 12 starts and one relief appearance, so of course he lost his GCL debut. Agrazal’s father is famous in Panama as one of the country’s best all-time pitchers and now he is a well-respected coach, so you would expect good mechanics from his son. Below is video shot by Tim Williams, so you can get your first look at Agrazal, who was hitting 93 MPH with his fastball. There is a report from the game in the Prospect Watch from last night. Also as an extra bonus, you’ll see a play by first round draft pick Cole Tucker. Unfortunately, it was one of his three errors and it was on a routine play.
Two other highlights from recently in the minors. The first is a home run from Tony Sanchez from Sunday.
The second is a homer from Willy Garcia from Monday night, his tenth homer of the year.Pirates Prospects is FREE today in honor of the Wild Card game.
