Here are the results from the Pirates prospects in yesterday’s winter league action.
**Ramon Cabrera got his second start behind the plate, and went 0-for-4 with a walk.
**Anderson Hernandez went 1-for-4 with a double and two walks for the Tigers in the Dominican League.
**In the same game, Alen Hanson entered as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning and grounded out in his only at-bat. Hanson remained in the game to play shortstop, replacing Atlanta shortstop Tyler Pastornicky. So far Hanson has just one at-bat in two appearances.
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.
