Daily Video Rundown: Kyle Nicolas, Luke Brown, Liover Peguero

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

Kyle Nicolas

If you were acquired in the Jacob Stallings trade and currently playing for Altoona, things are going pretty well for you. Connor Scott has been tearing the cover off the ball this past week in Richmond, and Kyle Nicolas started not once but twice for the Curve.

After working around walking the bases loaded in the first inning of his Tuesday start, Nicolas has been nearly perfect. In fact, he was on Sunday, pitching four flawless innings while striking out five.

If there was a way you’d envision starting things out in the Pirates’ system, you would have to think it would follow closely along this path.

Liover Peguero

You’ve seen on here recently just what Liover Peguero is capable of with the bat, it could be easy to forget just how good he can be with the glove.

Here’s a little reminder in the bottom of the eighth inning with the Curve clinging to their lead (they ultimately lost on a walk-off grand slam). Peguero made another similar play in the game, but the throw made Will Matthiessen come off the bag, but luckily he was able to use his giant frame to still apply the tag.

Luke Brown

The teammate of first overall pick Henry Davis at Louisville, Luke Brown was the Pirates ninth round selection in 2021. The speedy outfielder did not register a home run his entire college career, but already finds himself on the board early on in his first full professional season.

The outfielder smashed a grand slam, opening the flood gates even further in Bradenton’s 17-7 blowout of Lakeland. The 23-year-old Brown collected three of his four hits on the season on Sunday and is 4-for-12 in four games this season.

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.
