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 (Colin Moran, Edgar Santana, Dovydas Neverauskas), 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 our 2018 Prospect Guide, and links on each name go to their Pirates Prospects player pages.

Indianapolis lost 13-3 to Toledo due to some poor pitching and costly errors. The first Triple-A start from Austin Coley was not memorable. He gave up six earned runs on seven hits, while recording just two outs. He threw a total of 40 pitches in the inning. Brett McKinney came on to try to give Indianapolis some innings, but he needed 60 pitches to get through 2.1 frames. Damien Magnifico was able to go four innings, before Tyler Jones had a tough eighth frame. Kevin Kramer committed two errors which led to five unearned runs.

On offense, Christopher Bostick led the way with three hits, including his second double. He also scored a run. Jacob Stallings had a single, hit-by-pitch and a sacrifice fly, while driving in two runs. Both Bostick and Stallings are hitting .500 so far. Kevin Kramer had two hits and an RBI. Jose Osuna had a single and a walk. Eric Wood hit his third double.
