Minor Moves: Braeden Ogle Promoted to Bradenton

The Pittsburgh Pirates have promoted 21-year-old left-hander Braeden Ogle to the Bradenton Marauders. The 2016 fourth round pick has been pitching in relief this season for the Greensboro Grasshoppers. Ogle missed almost all of last season due to shoulder inflammation, which came back again during his rehab. He wasn’t originally supposed to miss a lot […]

The Hardest Throwing Minor Leaguers for the Pirates

I’m going to start this article off by saying that velocity alone doesn’t make someone a legit prospect and it doesn’t mean that the player has the best fastball either. What velocity does is get attention. Baseball America recently posted an article about the players who hit 100 MPH this past season. They acknowledged that […]

Winter Leagues: Erik Gonzalez is Hitting Well in the Dominican

With the five-player trade yesterday between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Cleveland Indians, it added a new player to our winter coverage. Erik Gonzalez is going to be a player of interest going into 2019, as someone with MLB experience, who can handle shortstop defensively well enough to play full-time. The question is whether his bat […]

Two days worth of action to cover and four new players have been added to the winter coverage. On Friday night in the Dominican, Pablo Reyes started at shortstop and went 2-for-5, with a double, run scored and two RBIs. He moved over to third base on Saturday and went 1-for-3 with a sacrifice bunt. […]

Winter Leagues: A Look at the Results Through the First Month

Only two Pittsburgh Pirates saw action in winter ball last night (and the AFL had off) so I thought I would give an update through the first month of action. As we have mentioned, this is a slow winter so far, with a total of seven Pirates seeing action. A few players are starting to […]

It’s been a slow start to the week in winter ball, but we heard yesterday that the action will pick up a little once they begin play next week in Puerto Rico. Here’s some quick stats from the last three days, along with some notes. Pablo Reyes returned to the lineup yesterday after missing a […]

Winter Leagues: Eduardo Vera and Tyler Eppler Throw Shutout Ball

Tyler Eppler and Eduardo Vera pitched on the same night for the first time this winter and they each put up five shutout innings. For Eppler, it was a nice bounce back start, while Vera has completely dominated the Mexican league from his first pitch. Eppler allowed five hits, walked one and hit a batter, […]

With no one from the Pittsburgh Pirates playing winter ball on Thursday, and not much going on Friday night, there isn’t much to cover from the last two days.
