The title might throw off some people that remember Chase d’Arnaud the middle infielder, but he has been playing center field for Indianapolis recently and he made this incredible catch yesterday. He is doing more than just playing great defense recently, he’s also contributing on offense, hitting .350 in 17 July games, with an .831 OPS.
A couple other highlights from the last couple days. The first is the second homer of the day by Andrew Lambo from Saturday’s Indianapolis game. He is 7-for-17 since returning to Indianapolis four games ago. He went 4-for-25 in eight rehab games split between the GCL and Jamestown.
Video three is GCL outfielder Luis Benitez with a stand-up triple from Saturday’s game. Even slowing up, he made it home to third in 11 seconds. That was the first extra-base hit this year for the 20-year-old switch-hitter, who spent the last two seasons in the Dominican Summer League.Pirates Prospects is FREE today in honor of the Wild Card game.
