Prospect Report: Nick Kingham’s Drop in Velocity and Increase in Walks

Despite finally picking up some of the recognition he deserves, Nick Kingham isn’t letting anything outside of the field affect his game. “I don’t put any pressure on myself,” Kingham said. “I feel like the game puts enough pressure on you just to go out and do whatever you know how to do, and know your role. Just be yourself out there.” The 22-year-old prospect started to creep into the national media’s eyesight over the...

Prospect Report: Tyler Waldron sees success at all levels with new pitch

Through a month and a half of the season, Tyler Waldron did some serious suitcase living.

Prospect Reports: Adrian Sampson Searching for Consistency

Bringing up the name Adrian Sampson won’t ring many bells across the baseball world. Most fans, including some that follow the Pirates, likely have never heard of the 2012 5th round pick.

Prospect Reports: Phil Irwin Getting Back the Feel For His Pitches

April was a month to forget for Phil Irwin. In the month, Irwin had an 11.57 ERA in 14 innings, with 20 hits allowed. “When you take a year off from surgery and don’t get as many innings in the spring as you want, I was just struggling to find the timing on my delivery,” Irwin said. “I just did not get the feeling of comfort on the mound early in the season. It obviously resulted in a bad April.” However, Irwin turned it around in...

Scout: Gregory Polanco has a chance to be a star

With the media and fan attention that has been thrown at Gregory Polanco, almost everything has been said about the super prospect. With this kind of attention comes Major League pressure. The pressure and the attention allow some people to forget that Polanco is only 22. In fact, he has had only five at bats this season against pitchers who are younger than him. The numbers don’t lie for Polanco, with an OPS of 1.015 through 36 games...
