P2 Top 30

A look at how the current top 30 prospects did today. If a player is in the majors for an extended time, or loses his prospect eligibility, he will be removed from this list. Everyone below him will be shifted up a spot, and a new player will be added to the bottom of the list. If a player is out for the season, he will be removed and everyone below him will move up a spot. Removing these guys doesn’t mean they have lost prospect status. It is just an attempt to get more active prospects on the list. Rankings are from the 2017 Prospect Guide, and links on each name go to their Pirates Prospects player pages.

West Virginia had a big day on offense with nearly everybody contributing in an 11-3 win over Rome. Albert Baur and Carlos Munoz were the big bats on this day. Baur drove in two runs with three singles and scored four times. Munoz drove in a total of five runs on his three singles. Adrian Valerio had three singles, scored twice and drove in a pair. He also added his sixth stolen base. Both Garrett Brown and Arden Pabst had two hits. Pabst scored two runs, while Brown crossed the plate once. Hunter Owen’s 14th double was the only extra-base hit of the game. The Power went 8-for-14 with runners in scoring position.

James Marvel started and allowed just one unearned run over his five innings. He gave up four hits and one walk, while striking out three and posting a 6:3 GO/AO ratio. Dylan Prohoroff allowed two runs in the sixth, then Matt Anderson, Ronny Agustin and Andrew Potter each tossed a scoreless inning to finish out the win. Potter pulled off some magic for his scoreless inning, throwing just seven strikes on 21 pitches and loading the bases before recording the final out.

Prospect-Watch-Bristol
Box Score

[/insert_php]

Bristol lost a tough game to Pulaski, with the winning run scoring in the top of the ninth with two outs on a balk. Bristol was down 3-0 through four innings. They came back with a two spot in the fifth, starting with a walk to Jason Delay, who then scored on a double from Ryan Peurifoy. After a sacrifice bunt, Peurifoy scored on a wild pitch. In the seventh, Bristol scored another run on a wild pitch after loading the bases on two hit batters and a single.

Edison Lantigua didn’t factor into the scoring, but he did have a great day. He finished 3-for-3 with a walk, hit-by-pitch and a stolen base. That gave him a .291/.426/.527 slash line on the season. The rest of the Bristol lineup had just three hits. Yondry Contreras went 0-for-4 with a HBP and a run scored. Jason Delay returned to the lineup 13 days after he was hit in the head with a pitch. He had a walk and a run scored.

Evan Piechota made his second start in place of Jacob Taylor, who is out with a back injury. He isn’t expected to miss a lot of time. Piechota allowed three runs in six innings and Argenis Romano committed the balk that scored the winning run. It was the only run he gave up in three innings.

Prospect-Watch-GCL

Box Score

The GCL Pirates finally got some offense on Monday, but the pitching let them down on this day, as they dropped an 8-6 decision to the Braves. The Pirates now have a 2-11 record, which is the worst in the league.

Monday was a good day for Jeremias Portorreal, who hit a three-run homer in the third inning. He also walked three times and part of an 11 walk effort by the Pirates. Portorreal had just two walks this season prior to today’s game. Lolo Sanchez had two hits, a walk, a run scored and two RBIs. Calvin Mitchell, Rodolfo Castro and Mikell Granberry each had two hits and a run scored. Mitchell also added a walk to his day.

Mason Martin played his second game and he’s still looking for his first base hit. The Pirates got the 17th round pick into a game just four days after he signed an over-slot deal last Monday. He played center field on Friday and went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts. On this day, he played first base and went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts and an error, though he did contribute two walks.

Jake Webb, the 19th round pick, made his second appearance after throwing a scoreless inning in his debut last week. He went two innings and allowed two earned runs on two walks and one hit (a home run).

Leandro Pina started and allowed three runs (two earned) over five innings, striking out six batters. Samuel Reyes took the loss by allowing three runs (two earned) in the bottom of the eighth inning. The Pirates were up 6-5 going into the frame.

Prospect-Watch-DSL

Box Score

The DSL Pirates lost a late lead on Monday, dropping an 8-5 decisions to the Rays2. They led 5-3 going into the eighth, but the Rays2 tied the score in the eighth and then added three runs in the ninth for the win.

Osvaldo Bido started the game and despite having the best fastball on the club now with Samuel Reyes moving up to the GCL, that hasn’t led to success for Bido. He went five innings in this game, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks, with two strikeouts. Bido has a 7.15 ERA in seven starts, but his upside makes it worth it to leave him in the rotation and get him innings. Luis Arrieta allowed the two runs in the eighth inning, with one being unearned. Francis Del Orbe gave up the three runs in the ninth.

Pitchers haven’t been able to stop Sherten Apostel recently, but he left Monday’s game after three innings due to a migraine, which was said to be heat related. He homered five times over his previous four games. Apostel struck out in his only at-bat on Monday. Larry Alcime had a single, double and an outfield assist. His double was the only extra-base hit on an 11-hit day for the Pirates. Samuel Inoa went 2-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored. Jean Eusebio had a single, walk and a run scored. Francisco Acuna had a single and a walk.

  1. If they both continue to struggle, do the Pirates let go of both Michael and Julio de la Cruz after this season?

    • funny you should say that. Mike was a superstar type player his first year but was home sick when brought to the states. He was noted as I think the top international prospect by Baseball America at that time and thought by now he would have adjusted more to the US. Julio has done very little at this point but both players got $700,000 to sign so I think they will stick with them for another year or two and hope they can salvage something from them. I still can’t understand what happened to Mike. Going from one of the best to barely being able to hit .200.

  2. 8 for 14 RISP, that’s a percentage of . . . pretty darn good. Get a cabbage leaf under Sherten’s cap!
