Last week I did a video recap of new Pirates prospect Aaron Thompson, showing him going up against his new teammates from the 2010 Altoona Curve. I’m planning on doing a new recap every week, ideally on Wednesday. I’ll leave the next recap up to you. The choices are Brett Lorin, Zac Fuesser, or Tyler Waldron. You can vote for your choice below, and the winner will be featured on Wednesday.
Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.
