Pirates DVR: Bubba Chandler Strikeout, Oneil Cruz Missile, Wyatt Hendrie Home Run

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

Bubba Chandler

It’s early on for players in the Florida Complex League, but it’s hard not to be amazed by what Bubba Chandler has done so far in his career.

He’s done it all, quite literally, as a two-way player for the Pirates. Just yesterday he was on here for the grand slam that he hit. Saturday he took the mound and pitched 3 1/3 innings of no-hit baseball,  walking three while striking out seven.

Here’s him getting his seventh and final one of the day.


Oneil Cruz

The guy is just a joy to watch, whether it be making plays in the field, running the bases, or absolutely destroying baseball. This one was gone in a hurry, leaving the bat at 112 mph, which as impressive that is overall, is just another day for Cruz at this point.

Wyatt Hendrie

The catcher hasn’t hit the ball well this season, but has made some hard contact the last two days for Bradenton. There wasn’t much offense cooking up in the system Saturday, and the Marauders were nearly shutout on the day, but the two-run home runs kept that from happening.

Indianapolis Indians

Let’s just put it this way, the Indians scored more runs in the second inning of their game than the rest of the system combined.

Rodolfo Castro and Yoshi Tsutsugo both hit home runs, the latter a grand slam while Kevin Newman and Travis Swaggerty also contributed to the offense in their huge inning.

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.

Did anyone notice how Cruz crossed home plate?

He was giving props to Andrew McCutchen… Totally ‘Cutch style. Tip of the hat, right foot first.

Love it.



Hes done that on every MLB homer this year! Its great


He seemed to do something similar in MILB as well… i didnt see yesterday if different


Come on Murph, I’ve already watch the Cruz bomb 8 times, now I’m you are forcing me to watch it 8 more times.


Listening to Joe Block call it more than once is a bit unsettling, lol. KY probably had to wince listening to this “Wow, wow, wow, wow, He is gorgeous isn’t he” after the Cruz homer.


I know Bubba is a long, long, long, way from Pittsburgh, but dang is it fun to dream about the future of this kid. A P2 subscription will be a good value on just Chandler articles and videos alone for the next few years.
