Prospect Highlights: Two Cole Tucker At-Bats and Videos of Four Other GCL Pirates Players

Prospect Highlights: Two Cole Tucker At-Bats and Videos of Four Other GCL Pirates Players

We have two at-bats from first round draft pick Cole Tucker, taken from Friday’s GCL game. It’s proof that baseball has a way of evening things out. In one at-bat, he hits the ball well and the right fielder makes a nice play to rob him. On the other, just a soft grounder up the middle that gets by the pitcher for a hit. That hit was the only one for Tucker in his last five games. His average to start Monday was down to .279 and he had just one extra-base hit, but thanks to ten walks, he has a .426 on base percentage and a respectable .728 OPS in his first 13 games

We also have some video of other players from the GCL Pirates that don’t get mentioned often. None of them are considered prospects at this point, just players in the system at an early stage in their career. This is a first look at all four of these players. All these videos are courtesy of the GCL Pirates fan page.

Henrry Rosario, outfielder, 21 years old

Jonathan Minier, right-handed pitcher, 24 years old

Luis Benitez, outfielder, 20 years old

Carlos Munoz, first baseman, 20 years old

    wow that is great video quality in the Tucker highlight! Love these prospect videos.

  • Joe Sweetnich

    Carlos Munoz can flat out hit. I’ve seen him a few times. Minier sure looks like he short arms the ball.

John was born in Kearny, NJ, hometown of the 2B for the Pirates 1909 World Championship team, Dots Miller. In fact they have some of the same relatives in common, so it was only natural for him to become a lifelong Pirates fan. Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game. He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site. John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.
