Daily Video Rundown: Blake Sabol and Liover Peguero Continue Offensive Tear


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

With the Indianapolis game postponed, Altoona was the only game that was live streamed so it’s going to be a heavy dose of the Curve. Not only is it heavy on the Curve, but also two familiar names that have been filling up the box scores.

Daily Video Rundown

Liover Peguero

The 21-year-old shortstop has been one of the best offensive players in the Eastern League, and one of the most consistent hitters in the Pirates’ system.

Peguero picked up three more hits on Wednesday, putting him in a tie with Frankie Tostado for the EL lead in hits. The two RBIs moved him in a tie for fifth in the category.

Blake Sabol

If there has been one player just as consistently good as Peguero this year, it’s been Blake Sabol. The 24-year-old slugging catcher has posted a .940 OPS in 26 games this season. Just this week against Richmond Sabol has gone 6-for-7 with four extra-base hits and seven RBIs.

Sabol trails only Peguero in most offensive categories on the Curve this season, and is only behind Andres Alvarez in home runs.

This double below was his sixth of the season.

Andres Alvarez

Alvarez hit his sixth home run of the season, now leading a team that has some of the system’s top prospects. He now has 17 hits on the season, 11 of which have gone for extra-bases.
