Weekly Prospects Chat Transcript 3/12

Below is the transcript for this week’s prospects chat.

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.

I know it’s early, but how does Alvarez look at the plate? 


Too early to say who is ahead for Opening Day at 3rd?
Alvarez made a couple of nice plays charging the ball in the tv game recently. Didn’t see him do anything with the bat, but he hustled down the line on a grounder and didn’t look lost at bat. Hit a 1st pitch HR too.
McGeehee had a great game recently too.


Dead arm? WAsn’t mentioned in his recent interview.
