Morning Report: Edwin Espinal is Still a Sleeper, But For How Much Longer?

At the beginning of the season, we mentioned Edwin Espinal as a possible sleeper prospect this year. He has looked like he was about to break out a few times during the year, but it really never lasted long and then he would just blend in again, doing nothing that stood out.

Morning Report: Not Many Players Do What Alen Hanson Does

It takes a special blend of power and speed to do what Alen Hanson has done this year at the plate and on the bases. He has reached double figures in doubles, triples, homers and stolen bases. The last Pirates players to accomplish that in the minors were Starling Marte and Hanson in 2012. Before that, Alex Presley did it during his breakout season in 2010 and then you have to go back to 2005 and Craig Stansberry for another example....
