Prospect Highlights: Throw From Garcia, Homer From Broxton, Cumpton Finishes Off Gem

We haven’t had highlights recently from Indianapolis and Altoona with the teams on their All-Star break, so today we take a look at some highlights from Thursday night. Yesterday we focused on pitcher Yunior Montero, who has a unique story for a player in the Pirates system, and on Tuesday we took a look at four plate appearances from five-tool outfielder Tito Polo. The first highlight is a throw from Willy Garcia to cut down a...

Prospect Highlights: First Look at a GCL Pirates Pitcher With a Tale of Perseverance

Yesterday, we shared some great video of 19-year-old five-tool outfielder Tito Polo from Tuesday’s GCL Pirates game. Check it out if you haven’t seen it, the link includes four of his plate appearances from the game. ¬†You don’t often see video from down in the GCL, but we are lucky enough to get our own video once in awhile, as well as some help from the GCL Pirates fan page.

Prospect Highlights: Some Productive Plate Appearances From Tito Polo

The other day we posted an article about Tito Polo that was very popular, highlighting the 19-year-old, five-tool outfielder, who is looking like the best player on the GCL Pirates right now. In that article, I mentioned that we would have better videos of him soon, which was a bit presumptuous on my part, because that meant he needed to have a good game at home on a day someone was there shooting video. Well, it didn’t take...

Prospect Highlights: Taking a Look at Some of the Pirates Catching Depth

With the top two teams in the minors on their All-Star break now, the highlights from Altoona and Indianapolis will be light for the next few days. Yesterday, we focused on some GCL players, including first round pick Cole Tucker. Today, we take a look at some catchers in the system, with two clips from Tony Sanchez, who has been on a recent hot streak.

Prospect Highlights: Two Cole Tucker At-Bats and Videos of Four Other GCL Pirates Players

We have two at-bats from first round draft pick Cole Tucker, taken from Friday’s GCL game. It’s proof that baseball has a way of evening things out. In one at-bat, he hits the ball well and the right fielder makes a nice play to rob him. On the other, just a soft grounder up the middle that gets by the pitcher for a hit. That hit was the only one for Tucker in his last five games. His average to start Monday was down to...

Prospect Highlights: A Five-Tool Outfielder By the Name of Tito Polo

When I was ranking the top ten players from the DSL last year, I had a lot of input on the team from first-hand sources and they all praised outfielder Tito Polo, saying he could do anything on the field. I got similar, but slightly lesser reports about outfielder Alexis Bastardo and decided to rank him one spot ahead of Polo for two reasons. Both players are about the same age and same size, so that was a wash there. Bastardo showed...
