Wes Freeman Promoted to West Virginia

The Pittsburgh Pirates have promoted outfielder Wes Freeman from State College to West Virginia.  Freeman, one of two Spikes to play in the New York-Penn League All-Star Game, improved his average from .169 on July 17 to .304 at the conclusion of tonight’s game. The outfielder is also leading the Spikes with six home runs and 25 runs batted in.

Freeman has a .304/.338/.492 line in 191 at-bats this year in State College.  He started the season last year in West Virginia, but had a .155/.223/.238 line in 84 at-bats.  It will be interesting to see how he does after his turnaround in short season ball this year.

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.
