WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES
|The Pirates signed Cespedes back in 2013, but he has yet to appear in a professional game due to injury.
Cespedes signed early in 2013, but he didn’t pitch that year and had Tommy John surgery in 2014. He spent 2015 recovering and again didn’t pitch.
Cespedes finally got into his first professional action at age 21. He pitched reasonably well, but didn’t appear in a game after the end of July.
Assuming he’s healthy, Cespedes should be at Bristol or back in the GCL in 2017.
