Pirates DVR: Antwone Kelly WBC, Bubba Chandler And Anthony Solometo Live BP

Welcome to the Pirates Prospects daily video rundown, where we pull some of the top videos of the Pittsburgh Pirates across the internet.

Antwone Kelly

There are several prospects in the system that are getting to participate in the World Baseball Classic. Antwone Kelly is among them, and one of the youngest to participate. After striking out 29 batters in 23.1 innings pitched last year in the FCL, Kelly is playing for the Netherlands currently.

Kelly got into his first bit of game action, pitching a clean seventh inning. Throwing all fastballs, the 19-year-old righty showed some impressive movement on the pitch, with the first and last pitch getting 17 and 16 inches of arm side run, respectively.

Bubba Chandler

The righty is focusing on pitching this year, which could help unlock his immense potential on the mound. Here he is facing a hitter in an intrasquad game.

Anthony Solometo

Out of the same 2021 draft class as Chandler, Anthony Solometo had one of the better debut seasons in the system last year, not allowing a home run at all in his time in Bradenton.

Tsung-Che Cheng

Another game, another hit for infield prospect Tsung-Che Cheng for the Chinese Taipei team. Here he bunts for a base hit, which drives in a run as well.

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.

Solometo = Candyman part deux (I hope!)


Wouldn’t it be fun if Bubba and AS got into a game of “whatever you can do I can do better” competition this year?
