Pirates DVR: Henry Davis Power Surge, Matt Gorski and Mason Martin Homer

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

Henry Davis

It was quite the weekend for former first overall pick Henry Davis. The catcher went a combined 6-for-12 the last three games of the series, with three doubles and a home run.

He recorded at least two hits and a double in each of the games, and on Sunday he paired that with his second home run at the Double-A level.

Matt Gorski

If there was any doubt about if the home run power we saw at Greensboro was a result of his environment, Matt Gorski is quickly proving otherwise. He picked up his sixth home run in 28 games with Altoona, hitting a three-run shot on Sunday.

Aaron Shackelford

Shackelford continues to rake, hitting his 12th home run of the season. He’s moved two ahead of Andres Alvarez for the team lead on Altoona.

Mason Martin and Travis Swaggerty Home Runs

It’s been a very rough stretch for Mason Martin. He batted under the Mendoza Line for the month of May, but still hit for power when he made contact. June has been completely different, with the lefty slashing .118/.187/.191 and most of that slugging percentage was added on Sunday.

Martin hit his first home run since May 29th. He has 12 now on the season.

Travis Swaggerty continues to flash the power many wondered if he’d be able to hit for. The outfielder hit his sixth home run for Indianapolis this season and has an OPS just north of .800.

Lot of movement in that Gorski swing. Guess if it works it works.


Lotta Jung-ho in that lower half.


Please, please, please let Gorski be the real deal. I also really like T swags swing. Would like to see him get a fair shake with the big club


Is Gorski opening day 1B for Pirates next season?

Next summer’s everyday lineup is going to be fire! Something like:

Bae 2B
Hayes 3B
Reynolds CF
Cruz SS
Davis C
Gorski 1B
Suwinski RF
Madris DH
Swaggerty LF

In the immortal words of Dick Enberg… oh my!


Plus marcano and castillo in super utility roles, I do like what I be seeing


Don’t forget Peguero. We have some serious competition at spots now. This is a great problem to have.


I like it man! I’d rather have Swaggerty in CF and Reynolds in left, or traded


Reynolds in LF works for me.


Davis taking that homer the opposite way is great to see! Very glad to see him settling in after taking the ball magnets out of his pocket


Sure looks like the move to back away from plate isn’t hurting his ability to go oppo taco with extra hot sauce!
