The Ongoing Maturation of Luis Heredia

The 2013 and 2014 seasons have both been up-and-down years for Luis Heredia. At the start of the 2013 season, Heredia came into spring training overweight and out-of-shape, causing him to miss a big chunk of the season while he worked on his conditioning. Thus, he was only able to pitch 65 innings at Low-A West Virginia. The results were mixed. On the positive side, Heredia finished his shortened season with a 3.05 ERA to go along...

Morning Report: A Sleeper Prospect in Bristol

In Bristol tonight, Hector Garcia is the scheduled starter. The 18-year-old lefty could be a real sleeper prospect in the Pirates system, but we really haven’t talked much about him. He is the youngest player on the Bristol roster and possibly the best prospect on the team. Last year while doing the DSL season recap for pitchers, I got a decent report on Garcia, but honestly thought he would return to the DSL due to his age and...
