Domingo Robles and Dylan Busby Receive Final Weekly Awards


Two Pittsburgh Pirates were among the minor league Players/Pitchers of the Week for last week. Domingo Robles was named as the Pitcher of the Week for the Eastern League, while Dylan Busby won the Florida State League Player of the Week.

Robles was named as our Player of the Week yesterday for his work in two starts last week. On Monday, he tossed a complete game shutout on 95 pitches, allowing five hits, with one walk and five strikeouts. On Saturday night, he gave up one run over five innings. Robles allowed three hits, walked none and picked up six strikeouts. In 18 starts with Altoona, the 21-year-old lefty posted a 4.02 ERA in 103 innings. Including his time in Bradenton, he had a 3.49 ERA in 165 innings this season.

Busby didn’t make our top performers article this week, but that’s only because he fell short of the plate appearances needed to qualify. That was due to the season ending early in Bradenton, as the last three games were canceled with Hurricane Dorian headed towards Florida. In four games, Busby went 6-for-14 with three homers, nine RBIs and three walks. He hit .213/.316/.453 in 114 games this season, finishing second in the league in slugging and first with 22 homers. He was named to the FSL end-of-season All-Star team.

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.
