Pirates Agree to Terms With All of Their Pre-Arbitration Players

The Pittsburgh Pirates have agreed to terms with all 24 of their pre-arbitration players on the 40-man roster, plus Chase d’Arnaud, who agreed to terms prior to being designated for assignment. This is kind of non-news, since the process of “agreeing to terms” with these players involves the Pirates saying “this is what we’re going to pay you this year”. No terms have been announced, and terms...

Pirates Trying to Work Some Familiar Magic on Daniel Schlereth

The Pittsburgh Pirates are in a good situation with their left-handed relievers in the majors. Tony Watson looked like one of the best relievers in baseball during the second half of the 2013 season. Justin Wilson put up a 2.08 ERA in his rookie season, although his 3.41 FIP suggests there might be some regression going forward. With that combo, the Pirates don’t have any questions about who will be their left-handers in the...

Clay Holmes Following the Nick Kingham Path

The Pittsburgh Pirates have plenty of top pitching prospects in their system. Gerrit Cole made the jump to the majors in 2013, and was looking like an ace by the end of the season.

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. I’d like to think that’s because I was saying Tyler Glasnow and Stolmy Pimentel would be breakout prospects last year, or that I said Gregory Polanco would be a breakout prospect a year before. 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. The ball explodes off Allie’s bat with little effort, making you believe that if he reaches the majors, 30 home runs could easily be accomplished. The one problem with that is Allie’s path to the majors is questionable. He dealt with...
