Daily Video Rundown: Liover Peguero, Jack Suwinski, Nick Gonzales

Welcome to the Pirates Prospects daily video rundown, where we pull some of the top videos of the Pittsburgh Pirates across the internet.

Daily Video Rundown

Liover Peguero

It has to be a weird position for Liover Peguero to be in. A lot of teams would love to get a player like him in their system, but it’s so easy to overlook him when the Pirates have another shortstop prospect capable of hitting bombs from one-knee on a consistent basis.

Make no mistake, Peguero is a legitimate shortstop prospect, both offensively and defensively. He was one of the youngest players at his position last year and High-A, and that will be the case again if he moves up to Altoona.

After playing in Tuesday’s game, Peguero was optioned to the minors. He went 1-for-6 at the with three strikeouts.

Jack Suwinski

Not much was known about Suwinski when he was acquired in the Adam Frazier trade, but after a great offseason, he’s looking like he could emerge has the big name from it.

Suwinski was a surprise addition to the 40-man roster before the lockout, but he’s quickly proving he belongs. He’s 2-for-5 with that triple he hit on Tuesday so far this spring. The outfield picture is cloudy at best outside of Bryan Reynolds, and while Suwinski won’t get an immediate look, he could play himself into the mix soon.

Nick Gonzales

Recently assigned to minor league camp, Nick Gonzales didn’t take long to make his presence felt, hitting a home run against the Baltimore Orioles.

Although they are doing it on separate fields, it shouldn’t be a surprise at any success they come across. Gonzales went 2-for-6 during Spring Training, with a RBI single in the first game this past Friday against the New York Yankees.

Both Gonzales and Peguero are expected to team back up with each at Altoona.

Anthony began writing over 10 years ago, starting a personal blog to cover the 2011 MLB draft, where the Pirates selected first overall. After bouncing around many websites covering hockey, he refocused his attention to baseball, his first love when it comes to sports. He eventually found himself here at Pirates Prospects in late 2021, where he covers the team’s four full season minor league affiliates.
