Prospect Highlights: Two Young Players From Australia Seeing Time With the GCL Pirates

The Pittsburgh Pirates have two 18-year-old players from Australia making their pro debuts in the Gulf Coast League this year.

Prospect Highlights: A GCL Pitcher Showing Improvements After a Solid Rookie Season

Today, we have multiple videos of GCL starting pitcher Dario Agrazal Jr, covering his last two starts. His last start actually didn’t go so well right before the rains came and caused the game to be suspended(the stats aren’t actually official yet since it will be completed August 8th). He threw four innings, giving up three runs on six hits and a walk, with three strikeouts and a 4/3 GO/AO ratio. Agrazal was facing the...

Prospect Highlights: Starter Doing Well in GCL Relief Role

Last year, pitcher Julio Vivas had a strong season in the Dominican Summer League and that got him a promotion to the United States this year. There is a lot to like about Vivas, his size at 6’2″, 227 pounds gives him the look of a workhorse starter. He has allowed just one homer during his four seasons in pro ball. That obviously comes with a strong ground ball rate, though this season he has been more of a fly ball...
