Jameson Taillon Effective for Seven Innings, Even Without Best Stuff

Pirates’ top pitching prospect Jameson Taillon did not launch his fastball up to the high-90’s Thursday night in Akron like he has in the past. Taillon’s breaking ball was not missing bats, which meant he got his first and only strikeout in the 6th inning. Despite Altoona’s starter not having his best stuff, the overall outcome was still very good. Taillon needed just 91 pitches to tie a career-high seven...

West Virginia Downs Lakewood Behind Glasnow and Steranka

West Virginia opened up a four game series tonight in Lakewood with a 6-2 win over the BlueClaws. The Power pounded out 14 hits and a combination of four pitchers allowed just five hits. Tyler Glasnow, facing Lakewood for the fourth time this season, was dominant in an outing cut short by a long rain delay. He ended up going four innings, allowing just one hit, which came on his first pitch of the game. Glasnow walked two, struck out...

GCL Notes: First Impressions of Shortstop Trae Arbet

The GCL Pirates played the GCL Phillies this afternoon at Pirate City. The Phillies scored six runs in the fourth inning, which was enough to lead them to a 6-3 win. For the first week of the GCL season I’ve been focused more on getting pictures of all of the players down here, so that I’ll have those for the rest of the season. However, I did take some notes today. I also got to see Trae Arbet in the field for the first...

Another Glasnow Gem in West Virginia Win

The hype around Pirates pitching prospect Tyler Glasnow appears to grow with every start the young right-hander makes and after Saturday’s performance against visiting Lakewood that trend looks like it will continue. Glasnow has been one of those 75 pitches/5 innings guys so far this season which makes what he has been able to accomplish that much more impressive. Saturday’s line? Five innings pitched, five hits allowed,...

GCL Notes: Curry and Mathisen Rehabbing; Draft Picks Easing Into Games

The GCL Pirates played their first home game today, winning 3-2 against the GCL Yankees. I didn’t focus on the game as much today, since most of my focus was on getting pictures. I’d rather get that out of the way early in the season, and focus more on the games after this first week. That’s not to say I didn’t follow what was happening in the game. It just means when the game was over I only knew the Pirates...

Getting a First Look in 2013 at Joely Rodriguez and Stetson Allie

I hadn’t seen Joely Rodriguez or Stetson Allie since they each left Spring Training for West Virginia at the start of the 2013 season. It’s hard to get a complete feel for guys in Spring Training. You can tell who looks good, and who might be struggling, but so much can change during the season. For example, Allie wasn’t crushing everything during Spring Training, then all of a sudden he enters the season, taps into...
