Daily Video Rundown: Roansy Contreras, Ji-Hwan Bae, Jason Delay

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

Roansy Contreras

It wasn’t an overall great night in the Pirates system, as the Altoona Curve was the only team not to lose and only because they didn’t play after their game was postponed due to snow.

So easily the brightest part of the day was the Roansy Contreras building off his last appearance out the bullpen with another stellar outing. He did allow a home run to Hunter Renfroe, but struck out the three following batter. All total, Contreras struck out five batters along three innings, with the home run the only hit he allowed.

Here he gets former Pirates Andrew McCutchen looking on a 97 mph fastball on the paint for a called strike three.

Ji-Hwan Bae

While the Indianapolis Indians are home to some of the better power prospects in the Pirates system, it’s been the contact hitting Ji-Hwan Bae that has arguable been their most consistent player. The 22-year-old has hits in 9-of-11 games so far this year, including one on Tuesday.

Indianapolis was held to four hits on the day, with Bae getting one of them. He reached base on an error later in the game in a play that also scored a runner. Bae has seen time at second base and in center field, and has put together a batting line of .314/.368/.371 in his 11 games played.

Jason Delay

Some nights are just your night. Not really known for his hitting, Jason Delay was just 1-for-19 entering Tuesday night’s contest. The former Vanderbilt Commodore registered two hits on the night, both hitting the opposite way.

One saw Delay down 0-2 before hitting a single to right field. The other was hit against what looked to be the shift, with the defenders loaded up on the other side of the field.
