    Brandon Cumpton makes his Major League debut for the Pirates on Saturday afternoon facing the Los Angeles Dodgers at PNC Park.

    Pirates Allow Season-High 17 Hits, Collect Only Three in Morton’s Debut

    Prospect Notebook: Jerry Sands Could Be a Good In-Season Addition For the Pirates

    A few weeks ago I wrote about how Jerry Sands was struggling all around, and how there were no silver linings to his game. He wasn’t hitting right-handers or left-handers. He wasn’t hitting for power. It wasn’t a home/road split, or a situation where you could point to the most recent games...

    Prospect Notebook: Pirates Have a Lot of Pitching Depth in Indianapolis

    The Indianapolis Indians are off to a 19-7 start this year, which is their best start in 54 years. The last time they started off this well was in 1959, when they went 22-7 to start the year. Minor league wins and losses don’t mean much. The main focus is developing players...
