Prospect Highlights: Homer From Alen Hanson, Strikeout By Nick Kingham

Yesterday, we concentrated on highlights from the Gulf Coast League, which happened to include a couple at-bats from Andrew Lambo. Today we return to highlights from the upper levels and two players that could possibly play big parts with the 2015 Pirates. Alen Hanson homered on Saturday night, his eighth of the season and fourth from the right side. On Sunday, Hanson drove home the Curve’s sixth run in the bottom of the eighth...

Prospect Highlights: Video From Saturday’s GCL Game, Lambo, Tucker and Eric Thomas Jr

Last night we posted some video of Mitch Keller and Trey Supak, who both made their pro debut yesterday for the GCL Pirates.  We have some more video of that game courtesy of the GCL Pirates fan page. The first video is Andrew Lambo reaching on an error by the first baseman. Later in the game, he would hit a home run. Lambo finished his second rehab game game going 1-for-3 with a walk. He played first base in his first game back and...

Prospect Highlights: Mel Rojas Jr Has a Big Night, More From Cole Tucker

Mel Rojas Jr started last night’s game on the bench, so he probably didn’t expect to collect three hits and drive in five runs, but that’s just what he did. Rojas has played well since joining Indianapolis, keeping up the fine season he started in Altoona. He has a .307/.385/.444 slash line in 84 games this year, with slightly higher numbers in AAA.  This looks like it’s the breakout season most people have...

Prospect Highlights: Cole Tucker Hitting and Fielding

Two short videos today courtesy of the GCL Pirates fan page, one showing a hit from first round pick Cole Tucker and the other shows him making a play at shortstop. Tucker had a string of getting on base exactly two times in each of his first six games. He broke that string yesterday by reaching base three times. He is hitting .360/.484/.400 through 25 at-bats. The second highlight is Tucker making a play just to his left. He’s...

Prospect Highlights: Defensive Gem From Alen Hanson, Garcia Continues to Pick Up Extra-Base Hits

We don’t get too many highlights from Alen Hanson on defense, and his skills at the position are constantly in question, so this play is good to see. He makes a diving stop on this ball up the middle, then completed the play with a throw from his knees. He has the range to play shortstop and the arm is good enough, his problem is more about consistency and the mental approach. Plays that he has too much time on, can turn into...
