Daily Video Rundown

Oneil Cruz

It was a big year for Oneil Cruz, as after starting the year with the Altoona Curve, he made his way all the way to the majors, making his debut during the last weekend of the season.

He gave a little bit of a taste of what the future holds, sending one into the stands, and the hope was he would use that momentum to start the year with the Pirates.

While that ended up not being the case, the Indianapolis Indians are more than happy to be getting a look at the massive prospect for however long he remains there. If he puts up the numbers he did in his brief Triple-A stint last year, it probably won’t be for long.

In six games with the Indians last year, Cruz posted a 1.941 OPS, with five home runs, along with drawing eight walks.

This Spring he has shown that same power, hitting a couple of massive shots while going 5-for-15 with the two home runs as well as scoring four runs.

After bouncing around many websites covering hockey, he refocused his attention to baseball, his first love when it comes to sports. He eventually found himself here at Pirates Prospects in late 2021, where he covers the team’s four full season minor league affiliates.
