Matt Gorski Named South Atlantic League Player of the Week

Minor League Baseball announced their weekly award winners this afternoon for May 16-22. The Pittsburgh Pirates were represented on that list by outfielder Matt Gorski, who had a huge week that led to his promotion last night to Altoona.  He had three multi-homer games, capped off by three home runs on Sunday, which led to all four Greensboro runs. His final swing with the team was a walk-off homer in the ninth. Gorski batted .435/.458/1.522 for the week, with eight homers. He has 17 homers now, which is more than double anyone else in the Pirates system this season. His slash line for the season stands at .294/.377/.754 in 37 games, with nine steals in ten attempts.

I wish him well and hope that he keeps up the power surge in AA.

Oh, really? Did he do something special or something?


Jacob Gonzalez, not that impressed by one Player of the Week award

If they hadn’t picked Gorski, we’d need the guys in white suits.


He’s also tied for the minor league lead. Hope he continues to hit. He’s 24 so it’d be cool if he continued to hit and got a few at bats in Pittsburgh this season.


Wish they had skipped him over Altoona and Indy, and penciled him in to bat cleanup and play RF or 1B vs Rockies tonight.
