The Pirates can’t develop their players. What are they doing for Cruz? Where’s our catcher. Where’s the hitting coaches.


He is going to be tough on left handed batters with that almost side arm approcah.


Early thoughts on solo? Based on the numbers seems that he hasnt been dominant nor overmatched in his FCL debut


Not sure we really learn much til AA. It’s exceptionally marginal stuff right now relative to what even middling big leaguers are bringing to the table.


sit down, child. watch minor league ball long enough and you’d know how frequently dudes with funky deliveries and deception beat up on A ball hitters only to run into a wall in the upper levels. Surface level stats mean less than anything else at this level.
