Daily Video Rundown: Jacob Gonzalez, Connor Scott, Sammy Siani

Welcome to the Pirates Prospects daily video rundown, where we pull some of the top videos of the Pittsburgh Pirates across the internet.

Daily Video Rundown

Jacob Gonzalez

The Pirates acquired Jacob Gonzalez, the son of former big leaguer Luis Gonzalez, in the minor league portion of the Rule 5 draft. Assigned to Bradenton to start the year, the 23-year-old infielder has gotten off to a hot start, collecting 13 hits in his first 22 at-bats (.591).

He hit his second home run of the season Saturday night in the Marauders victory.

Connor Scott

Acquired in the Jacob Stallings trade, Connor Scott is having himself quite the week in Richmond. The outfielder is 7-of-12 (.583) with two doubles and this home run showed above. Just as impressively as the display of power has been his patience at the plate.

Scott has drawn four walks in as many games this week, while striking out just twice. He even stole his first base of the season Saturday night.

Sammy Siani

The 21-year-old Sammy Siani was given the push up to High-A Greensboro despite playing in just 62 games last year with the Bradenton Marauders, and that decision has been playing immediate dividends.

The lefties second home run of the season pushed the Grasshoppers score into double digits. Siani has seven hits in 22 at-bats, collected eight RBIs and has shown some of that ability to draw walks with eight on the season. That has come with a high amount of strikeouts, with nine total.

Indianapolis Indians Offensive Outburst

The Indianapolis Indians dropped a wild and crazy offensive outburst by the score of 16-13 in favor of the home St. Paul Saints.

They did, however, have a seven run second inning outburst, jumping out to an 8-0 lead.

Cal Mitchell hit a bases loaded double, followed up by Hunter Owen hitting a two-bagger of his own and Mason Martin finished it up with a home run.
