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 and Edgar Santana), or loses his prospect eligibility (Kyle Crick and Dovydas Neverauskas), 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.

Prospect-Watch-Indy

Indianapolis had their doubleheader on Sunday against Buffalo postponed due to the weather. No makeup date has been announced, though the two teams only meet again once in Indianapolis for three games in late July, so they will likely be played then.

Prospect-Watch-Bradenton

Bradenton was the only team that saw action on Sunday and their game had a very tough ending. The Marauders led 5-1 going into the bottom of the fifth when the skies opened up. Play was allowed to continue and Clearwater scored four runs before the game was called with two outs in the bottom of the fifth.

Mike Wallace took the tough loss, throwing a complete game while serving up two homers in the fifth. Bradenton manager Gera Alvarez got ejected after the second homer and they game was called just two pitches later.

Bradenton scored a run in the second inning on a Hunter Owen single and an Albert Baur (pictured above) RBI double. In the third inning, a triple by Owen and second double by Baur, brought home two more runs. In the fourth, the Marauders added one more tally on a Jason Delay single, stolen base and an RBI single by Alfredo Reyes.
