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...

Prospect Highlights: Homer By Willy Garcia, Keon Broxton Steals Home

Willy Garcia hit his 15th homer of the season on Thursday, which leaves him one behind JaCoby Jones for the most among Pirates minor leaguers. Garcia is on an impressive 11-game hit streak that has seen him raise his average to .273 and get his OPS up to the .800 mark. What makes the streak even more impressive is that he is still having his strikeout/plate patience issues. During the streak he has just one walk and 12 strikeouts. On...

Prospect Highlights: Lambo Homer, Mathisen Triple, RBI Hits From Bell and Allie

Four highlights today from three different levels, including a rare West Virginia Power video. Since the Rome Braves are the only team in the SAL that seems to tape games, and only during their home games, we don’t see many Power highlights. We also have a home run from Andrew Lambo from last night and RBI hits from Stetson Allie and Josh Bell. Lambo hit his fifth homer for Indianapolis. Since returning ¬†from his thumb injury,...

Prospect Highlights: Jordan Luplow Homer, Edwin Espinal Can Hit

Jamestown hasn’t been uploading videos all year, so we didn’t notice these right away because there was no reason to look. From early last week, we have two highlights from Pirates third round pick in 2014, Jordan Luplow. In the first one, he hits his fourth homer of the year. Luplow has been on a recent slide that has seen his season stats drop, but that could be chalked up to playing a longer schedule than he is used to....

Prospect Highlights: Homer From Stetson Allie, Key RBI by Reese McGuire

We don’t often get highlights from the West Virginia Power, so here are some from the last couple days. It seems like the Rome Braves are the only team that posts highlights, so when the Power are in town, they usually post one per game for the visiting team. The first video is a sacrifice fly from Reese McGuire, which gave the Power a 5-4 lead in the top of the ninth. McGuire hasn’t hit much since the All-Star break,...
