Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.
Strange, Evan Chambers looks a lot like John Bowker.
wanna see big years from Quinton Miller and Robbie Grossman
That Joe Beimel kid is one to keep an eye on.
Not the most exciting roster…
Little bit surprised that they didn’t push a guy like Tyler Waldron, unless they are holding him back in Extended ST for a bit to conserve innings.
Waldron is on West Virginia’s roster. My opinion is that once Taillon is ready to join WV out of EST (maybe the start of May), either Waldron and/or Cumpton will get bumped up to Bradenton.
Where’s Victor Black? Injured again?
