Pirates DVR: Blake Sabol’s Big Day, Quinn Priester Strikeouts, Travis Swaggerty Triple

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

Blake Sabol

The Altoona catcher extended his hitting streak to seven on Sunday. Sabol collected a pair of key hits, first with his 12th home run of the season, originally giving the Curve a lead.

He would later knock in the deciding run in the 10th inning, giving the Curve the win in extra innings.

Quinn Priester

The former first round pick struck out a season high eight batters on Sunday. He hasn’t given up an earned run in his last three outings including this one (had an unearned run). Over his past 11 1/3 innings (three starts), Priester has allowed just seven hits, two hit batters, three walks and 17 strikeouts.

Travis Swaggerty

Another former first round pick for the Pirates, Swaggerty hit his sixth triple of the season on Sunday for Indianapolis. It was his 20th extra base hit of the year.

Tucupita Marcano

Marcano hit his first home run of the year with Indianapolis, his third overall in the minors. A sweet look from behind showing him connect and admire his work for a second before rounding the bases.

First time I noticed that Victory Field is 418′ in LC. Swagg’s hit a 300′ line drive that ran another 118′ to the wall. 418′ in LC and then 402 in CF means a field built for gap shots that become triples very easily.

Be nice for all of us Pirate fans in TN if the Bucs traded AAA affiliates with Milwaukee. They get Indy and we get Nashville. Or, a new field is being built in Knoxville which could be the Pirates AA Affiliate and Altoona would become the AAA Affiliate.


yep-I NEVER go to see AA ball here in Knoxville, I hate the Cubs that much. I would LOVE to see AAA at Altoona and AA here.


Priester looks like he’s throwing with so little effort. I think I like how smooth is motion appears. Can’t wait to see him, Roansy, Burrows, the new & improved Keller, and ??? In the rotation next year.


I always wonder if the coaches discussed with Marcano about running rather than watching. I only say that because if it only hits the wall and bounces back. He might’ve only had a long single out of that due to how long he watched the ball.


Did you see MadBum called Robles a clown for doing that to him the other day, and Robles showed up wearing a clown nose in the dugout the next day?

Something tells me MadBum is the type who might not see the humor in that response.


Yeah, I see a cherry-red nose-shaped spot on Robles hip in the future.


Kind of unfortunate that Swaggs didn’t get a shot at playing center: he will be our center fielder in a year or so. Look who doesn’t Reynolds but defensively he just is not as Travis.


Any idea what the 86-91 mph pitches were? Is hard to tell from that angle but they look like change ups, good change ups….exciting stuff if it is, now let’s add the sinker……

First thing I noticed, too. At least cambios to the lefties, and maybe even the last two K’s against rightings?


Just watched 3 innings, the 86 mph is a change, but his fastball was 91-94? It was effective, but below his usual range…


I go to several Senator’s games mostly when the Curve are in town. I didn’t make it this weekend because it was just too hot. I noticed yesterday the Senator broadcaster was giving a higher number than was showing on the screen.


Thanks, I did noticed that, It was normally a mph and I just assume it was the fraction, sometimes the pitch is 92.4 and one will show 92 and one will say 93. Wondering if the 91 was a sinker since it had some run. In any case it was a strong outing and will take that result over him hitting 97 and getting bomb!
