Over the last two days in the Morning Report, I covered the stats leaders around the system for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Those were all upper level players, so here's a quick look at the best players at the bottom four levels. I'm doing this one a little different than the previous two articles. These are the team-by-team leaders in a few of the batting and pitching categories. I used two at-bats per game, or a 1/2 inning per team game for the non-counting categories (meaning not the homers, steals, strikeouts).

Batting Average

Morgantown: Deon Stafford, .283

Bristol: Edison Lantigua, .298

GCL: Mason Martin, .317

DSL: Sherten Apostel, .263


Morgantown: Bligh Madris, .352

Bristol: Edison Lantigua, .404

GCL: Mason Martin, .448

DSL: Emison Soto, .431
