First Pitch: Is Stetson Allie the Breakout Prospect of 2014?

Pretty much anytime I’ve seen someone this Spring, one of the first questions they’ve asked has been wondering who the breakout prospect would be this year in the minors.

But I feel like it’s just part of the job...

Stetson Allie Getting an Aggressive Push to Altoona in 2014

There is no question that Stetson Allie has the best raw power in the Pittsburgh Pirates farm system. As far as the entire organization, the only player who would be better is Pedro Alvarez.

First Pitch: The New International Player Pages

Last week I wrote about the international players who would be in camp for the first time this year. A lot of these guys are expected to make the jump to the US this year, and the number of players making that jump for the first time is pretty large, due to the addition of Bristol. We usually wait for players to jump to the US for Spring Training before making a player page for them on the site. Today, Wilbur Miller created a ton of...
