Pirates DVR: Hudson Head Home Run, Diego Castillo Walk-Off, Andres Alvarez Multi-Homer Day

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

Hudson Head

It was an incredibly tough start to the season for Hudson Head, but he definitely took a step in the right direction in July and is already looking to extend that into August. The outfielder hit a three-run home run on Tuesday, his ninth of the season, although Greensboro ending up losing the game.

Diego Castillo

Didn’t take long for Diego Castillo to make his presence known with Indianapolis this season. Castillo hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the tenth inning to win it for the Indians.

Andres Alvarez

The former 22nd round pick hit his 16th and 17th home runs of the season, supplying the only runs for Altoona on Tuesday. He now trails Aaron Shackelford for the team lead with 18.

Oneil Cruz

He makes that look so easy.

Carter Bins

Before Castillo was able to win it in extra innings, Carter Bins tied things up in the ninth.

I always like seeing a guy like Castillo showing joy in winning a AAA game so soon after being demoted from MLB. I probably shouldn’t expect otherwise but it’s still nice that the celebration isn’t subdued because it’s “only AAA”.


Anyone one has an idea what lead to Alvarez power surge, launch angle, pulling the ball more?

I’ve really only seen Alvarez in these DVR clips which are pretty much always his homers but that swing looks like the prototype for taking advantage of balls up in the zone and putting them in the stands.


Lack of exposure to Andy Haines and Derek Shelton would be my guess😁


big daddy hacks, baby! Look at the man!
