DSL Pirates Report: Two New Scouting Reports and an Injury Scare For a Top Prospect

The DSL Pirates had some injuries this week that left them short-handed and we found out that one player is done for the year.

It was a slightly abbreviated week for the DSL Pirates as the league takes the weekend off for the All-Star game.

DSL Pirates Report: Is Yeudy Garcia a Legit Prospect?

Last weekend, we talked about the DSL Pirates breaking a nine game losing streak and how bad the pitching has been early on, especially out of the bullpen. After finishing last week with a win, the Pirates went 4-2 this week and got some great starting pitching. One of the losses this week was strictly on the bullpen, which gave up seven runs over the last two innings. Since the bullpen usually consists of fillers at the back end,...
