Instructs Report: Robles, German and Cederlind Pitch; Mathisen Continues to Move...

BRADENTON – Just some brief notes from instructs on Thursday. The more experienced players returned from two days on the road to play the Yankees.

Instructs Report: More New DSL Pitchers Take the Mound; Hai-Cheng Gong...

Weight Loss Proves to Be Pivotal for Wyatt Mathisen During All-Star...

ALTOONA, Pa. – His official listed weight on MiLB.com is 227 pounds. In the Altoona Curve game notes that media receives, he is listed at 241 pounds. Fortunately for the Curve — and the Pirates’ organization as a whole — that number is nowhere close to what Wyatt Mathisen now weighs in at for his fifth professional season.

2016 Third Base Recap: Pirates Look Set in the Short and...

In 2015, Jung Ho Kang broke onto the US scene looking like an impact hitter. He was the second best hitter on the Pirates’ roster, behind Andrew McCutchen, and was slightly better than McCutchen in the second half of the season. All of that came to an end when Kang had his season cut short […]
