Pirates DVR: Fabricio Macias Home Run, Angel Basabe Triple, Darwin Baez RBI Single

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

Fabricio Macias

The 24-year-old outfielder hit the ground running as soon as he joined the Altoona Curve at the beginning of the month. Macias is slugging .492 in Double-A, hitting his first home run at the level on Wednesday.

Angel Basabe

In 11 games this month with Bradenton, Basabe has slashed .345/.441/.586 and hit his third triple of July on Wednesday. It was one of three hits on the day for Basabe.

Darwin Baez

In just his second game of the season with Bradenton, Baez delivered his first Single-A hit, a reminder that sometimes it isn’t how hard you hit it, but where it lands. The also drove in Basabe, who had reached base on a triple.

Sergio Campana

Campana is still struggling to put the ball in play at times, but when he has, he’s making some very strong contact. His two-run home run opened up the scoring on Wednesday, and had an exit velocity of 105.

Matt Fraizer

Altoona lost 12-3 on Wednesday, and now have been outscored 23-8 in two games this week against Bowie. The last run came on this Matt Fraizer RBI single.

Maikol Escotto

I talked about Escotto on Wednesday morning’s P2Daily, and the progress he has made since landing back in Bradenton. He drove in a run later that day on this base hit.

Campana seems to a great athlete but can he hit? If he can, he is a sure major league player. If not, another international bonus baby that did not pan out.
