Daily Prospect Profiles: Victor Black

One of the most interesting prospects in the lower levels, outside of the consensus top guys, is Victor Black.  The Pittsburgh Pirates drafted Black with a compensation pick in 2009, getting that compensation for failing to sign Tanner Scheppers the year before.  Black was rated the #50 overall prospect in the draft, and was taken with the 49th overall pick.  He had the projection of a future late innings reliever in the majors, due...

2011 Altoona Curve Preview: Bullpen

Today we wrap up the 2011 Altoona Curve preview with a look at the bullpen.  So far we’ve covered the infielders, outfielders, and the starting pitchers.  As I mentioned in last week’s preview of the Indianapolis bullpen, a minor league bullpen isn’t overly important.  That’s especially true the lower you go in the minors.  Most bullpen guys in the lower levels aren’t likely to reach the majors, and if...
