WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE

Nolasco was a six-figure signing for the Pirates on the first day of the 2018-19 signing period.  He’s a corner outfielder who had the best exit velocity of any of their hitters in the DSL in his first season.

2019
DSL:  302/373/472, 199 AB, 13 2B, 3 3B, 5 HR, 16 BB, 26 K, 3-7 SB

Nolasco had a strong debut, hitting for average and power, and making good contact.  He got off to just a solid start, but finished very strongly, posting a 1.005 OPS in August and finishing the season with a 12-for-22 run.

Nolasco should be in the GCL in 2020.
