West Virginia Wins 8-6 In Heredia’s Second Start

The West Virginia Power won game two of their four game series against the Lakewood BlueClaws by an 8-6 score.

Jameson Taillon Effective for Seven Innings, Even Without Best Stuff

Pirates’ top pitching prospect Jameson Taillon did not launch his fastball up to the high-90′s Thursday night in Akron like he has in the past.

GCL Notes: First Impressions of Shortstop Trae Arbet

The GCL Pirates played the GCL Phillies this afternoon at Pirate City. The Phillies scored six runs in the fourth inning, which was enough to lead them to a 6-3 win. For the first week of the GCL season I’ve been focused more on getting pictures of all of the players down here, so that I’ll have those for the rest of the season. However, I did take some notes today. I also got to see Trae Arbet in the field for the first...

Another Glasnow Gem in West Virginia Win

The hype around Pirates pitching prospect Tyler Glasnow appears to grow with every start the young right-hander makes and after Saturday’s performance against visiting Lakewood that trend looks like it will continue. Glasnow has been one of those 75 pitches/5 innings guys so far this season which makes what he has been able to accomplish that much more impressive. Saturday’s line?
