Pirates DVR: Bubba Chandler, Wyatt Hendrie Defense, Malcom Nunez 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 was quite the night for the young Pirates prospect, as Bubba Chandler put in the best performance of his professional career. The righty completed five no-hit innings, walking two and striking out five along the way.

He was even able to mix in his changeup to get a few misses with, including a strikeout in the second inning. Some of Chandler’s outings you could see him starting to fade as the game went on, understandable for a 19-year-old, but he only seemed to get stronger as the night went on.

Chandler was still hitting 98 mph with his fastball in the fifth inning. It was the longest outing of his career, and one that he ended in dramatic fashion. Showing off his athleticism, Chandler dove for a baseball, collected it and threw out the runner to get the last out in the fifth. For him to dive like that while coming off the mound, is so impressive.

Wyatt Hendrie

There’s two things about this play. First, what a cannon by Hendrie who threw out the base stealer with ease. The second? The strut by Hendrie afterwards, he knew the runner was going to be out as soon as he released the ball.

Malcom Nunez

Nunez picked up his third home run in 10 games with Altoona, this one a three-run shot against the Bowie Baysox to open up the scoring.

Cal Mitchell

Mitchell has been incredibly for Indianapolis this season, and hit a go-ahead solo home run on Tuesday to give the Indians the lead.

Endy Rodriguez

At this point it’s not much a surprise when Endy finds himself on here, as he picked up another hit and still has one in each game he’s played with the Curve. He also has seven extra-base hits in his first 10 games at Double-A.

Endy Rodriguez is Looking Like the Best Prospect in the Pirates System

What exactly is Cal working on at AAA? Just get him up here and see if he can learn to hit MLB pitching!

Nifty lil cambio from Bubba getting overshadowed by the diving stop.

Cal Mitchell = DH in Pittsburgh, now

NMR

The Designated Hitter role typically goes to a guy who can hit.

Mitchell has at least shown that he CAN hit AA & AAA pitching . . . reference the current Pirate DHs.
