Here are some highlights from the last few days in the Pittsburgh Pirates system, including two videos of top prospect Gregory Polanco.
There’s always time for Gregory Polanco highlights, especially a highlight of him showing off his speed by stealing second base, and taking third on a wild throw by the catcher.
Here’s another video of Polanco picking up a single up the middle.
The Indians won in walk off fashion last night, as outlined in the Prospect Watch. Andrew Lambo started the comeback earlier in the game with this RBI single.
Indianapolis eventually won it on this walk off single by Chris Dickerson.
Down in Double-A, Andy Vasquez had a two run homer on Wednesday night. Vasquez is more of an upper level organizational guy, due to his ability to play almost any position on the field.
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.
