First Pitch: Cody Bolton’s Future Development

I had a mistake in yesterday’s article, which kind of messed up the transition to today’s article. I was discussing Shane Baz, and doing a brief comparison to Cody Bolton. The Pirates originally intended for Baz to arrive in Low-A at the end of April 2018. He struggled with control and was held back in […]

Altoona Top Ten Prospects: A Solid Group at the Top, Followed...

Yesterday we took a look at the season recap for the Altoona Curve. They were a below .500 club, that was short on top prospects in the system. The Pirates had a weak year at Bradenton in 2018, and many of those players moved up to Altoona this year to join a group of players […]

Yesterday we took a look at the season recap for the Bradenton Marauders. We noted in the title to that article that they had many of the top prospects for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Bradenton Season Recap: A Team with Many of the Top Prospects...

The Bradenton Marauders began the season with some of the top prospects in the system. They received some more prospects during the season from Greensboro. The Marauders got mixed results from their prospects, with a few breakout seasons and mediocre results from others. That led to an overall 73-62 record, which was the third best […]

Minor Moves: Nick Mears Promoted to Altoona; Cody Bolton Placed on...

The Pittsburgh Pirates promoted right-handed relief pitcher Nick Mears to Altoona on Saturday. He was signed as a non-drafted free agent last August and will now be at his third level this season. Mears debuted briefly with Morgantown last year, throwing four shutout innings over three appearances, with eight strikeouts. He began this 2019 season […]

Prospect Watch: Rodolfo Castro Hits Two Home Runs; Cody Bolton Debuts...

A look at how the current top 30 prospects did today. If a player is in the majors for an extended time or loses his prospect eligibility (Kevin Newman, Nick Burdi and Bryan Reynolds), he will be removed from this list. Everyone below him will be shifted up a spot, and a new player will […]

Morning Report: Cody Bolton’s Rise in the Pirates’ System Continues

I wasn’t totally convinced that the Pirates were going to promote Cody Bolton to Altoona this year. That has nothing to do with the perceived notion that the Pirates delay promotions and move slowly moving up their players. It has nothing to do with the performance from Bolton. It has everything to do with his […]
