WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES
|Yes, that’s really his first name. Luciano throws in the low-90s with a hard curve.
Luciano struggled severely in the DSL bullpen.
Despite his rough debut, the Pirates moved Luciano up to the GCL, which shows they at least think he has some potential. He pitched much better, but not especially well.
Hiciano returned to the GCL, still pitching solely in relief. His peripherals weren’t as bad as his awful ERA. In fact, his BB and K rates were very good. He was done in by a BABIP of .396.
Despite the bad ERA, the Pirates could try Luciano at Bristol in 2017.
