Prospect Highlights: Stetson Allie Homer, Broxton’s Having a Solid Season

The highlights have been a little slow the last few days for Altoona and Indianapolis, so we waited a little bit to show this first clip. This is Stetson Allie’s 16th homer of the season, one behind JaCoby Jones for the Pirates organization lead. It’s an impressive shot from Allie, who has been on a recent hot streak, improving his two biggest weaknesses, low average and high strikeouts. Even after an 0-for-3 yesterday,...

Prospect Highlights: A.J. Morris, Cole Tucker and More From Thursday’s GCL Game

Today we have multiple highlights from yesterday’s GCL Pirates 10-1 win over the Braves. I’ll briefly go through the players and let the videos do most of the talking, because there are a lot of players here to take a look at. All videos are courtesy of the GCL Pirates fan page. A.J. Morris threw three shutout innings in his fourth rehab appearance. He was pitching great for Altoona and then Indianapolis, until a forearm...

Prospect Highlights: Starling Marte Doubles, Rojas Homers, First Look at Angel Sanchez

The title is “Prospect” Highlights, but occasionally we get some minor league footage of non-prospects in here. Sometimes it’s just players that make great plays like this outstanding catch from Chase d’Arnaud the other day. Other times it’s Major League players on rehab like Starling Marte today. He played his second game with Indianapolis yesterday as he comes back from the concussion he received a...

Prospect Highlights: Walk-Off From Mel Rojas Jr, Elias Diaz Plates Two

Mel Rojas Jr had a nifty piece of hitting in the tenth inning last night, which ended up winning the game for Indianapolis. He squares around to bunt, but as the pitch comes, he pulls the bat back and lines a game-winning double down the third base line. Since being called up to Indianapolis, Rojas has a .287/.373/.381 slash line in 57 games. One problem with his game has always been too many strikeouts and not enough walks. His...

Prospect Highlights: Big Hit From Lambo, Garcia Homers Again

Yesterday, we took a good look at Willy Garcia and his current hot streak despite poor plate patience and high strikeouts. On Friday, he continued that streak in a big way, hitting his 16th homer, while also adding two doubles. The home run tied him for the most among Pirates’ minor league players, pulling him even with JaCoby Jones. The two doubles gave him 24 on the year, one behind Chris McGuiness in the organization. Garcia...
