We heard last night that West Virginia outfielders Harold Ramirez and Barrett Barnes both left their game early and for both of them, it looked like hamstring injuries. It’s a problem which has plagued Barnes throughout his pro career. Today, both players were placed on the disabled list.
Austin Meadows, who was supposed to be the third starter in the West Virginia outfielder, is also out due to a hamstring injury. He is in Extended Spring Training.
The Power have added infielder Adam Landecker and outfielder Justin Maffei to the active roster to take their place.
The Pirates now have six players among their top 18 prospects on the disabled list. Besides the three West Virginia outfielders, Jameson Taillon and Clay Holmes are out for the year and Tyler Glasnow is in Extended Spring Training, where he is getting ready to return from a back injury.
