Prospect Highlights: Double From Harold Ramirez, Homer From McGuiness

It’s not often we get West Virginia Power highlights and this is the first time Harold Ramirez has been featured in one. Here he hits a double down the line in the ninth inning that brought home the tying run. The Power went on to lose the game in the bottom of the ninth inning. Ramirez had two hits in the game and since returning from a hamstring injury that cost him a month of the season, he is hitting .318/.390/.409 in 16 games.

Keeping it going with West Virginia highlights, we have a bases loaded triple from outfielder Justin Maffei from Monday’s game. He is making the most of his playing time lately, batting .412 with a .983 OPS in his last ten games.

On to Indianapolis from last night, where Chris McGuiness hit his fifth homer of the season. He has also been on a tear recently, hitting .417 with a 1.210 OPS in his last ten games. McGuiness showed impressive power here, going the opposite field on a swing that did not look like it would produce a home run.

Finally, he’s not considered a prospect anymore, but how could you not love seeing The Hit Collector in action. Matt Hague hits his fifth homer of the year.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball.

When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.
