Daily Video Rundown: Luis Peralta, Mike Burrows, Abrahan Gutierrez

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

Luis Peralta

The 21-year-old Luis Peralta had an interesting start on Wednesday that was a microcosm of his career so far. Of the 11 outs he recorded for the Bradenton Marauders, nine were by strikeout. In 11 innings pitched this season, Peralta has 23 strikeouts, which is nearly half (50) of the total batters he has faced this year.

He also walked four in the 3 2/3 he pitched, and now has 11 free passes in as many innings this year.

Here’s a look at his strikeouts from Wednesday’s start with Bradenton.

Mike Burrows

Continuing his great start to the season, Mike Burrows pitched five shutout innings for the Altoona Curve, striking out seven batters in the process. He didn’t get the win, Altoona didn’t score until after he left the game, but it was another strong start for Burrows.

Here’s a look at those seven strikeouts, all of which came in the first three innings. He struck out the side in the first and third inning and escaped the fourth after runners got on second and third with just one out. On the season, Burrows has struck out 23 batters in 18 innings pitched.

Abrahan Gutierrez

The other, other catcher in Greensboro, Abrahan Gutierrez has spent most of his time at first base with Henry Davis as the primary backstop and Endy Rodriguez also getting time there.

Gutierrez, 22, has shown some decent power early on, slugging .400 with seven of his 13 hits going for extra-bases. That included his first home run of the season on Wednesday.

A bonus clip, speaking of catchers, here’s a quick one of Endy throwing out a base runner. He had struggled early on in the season but has now thrown out a couple base runners in a row.

Jase Bowen

Jase Bowen has bounced all around the baseball field to start the year, but no matter where he lines up, the power has followed. After finishing last year tied for fifth in home runs in Low-A Southeast while with Bradenton, Bowen is currently in a tie for first place this time around with five.

Matt Fraizer

Last year’s breakout star, Matt Fraizer has struggled out the gate but came up with a big hit for the Curve Wednesday, driving in the only two runs they scored on the day.
