Daily Video Rundown
It’s been quite the season for Matt Gorski. He exploded for 17 home runs with Greensboro before getting promoted to Altoona, and has continued to hit for power at the Double-A level. Wednesday he hit his 20th overall home run, third with Altoona, as a part of a 2-for-4 day.

He started things off with a triple, before making a nice sliding catch in right field and finishing off with the home run. Altoona ended up coming from behind and winning against Erie.
Another name that is no stranger to this segment, Sabol came through huge for the Curve, hitting a single up the middle that ended up clearing the bases after an error, which ultimately won the game.

The outfielder has actually hit for some power this season with Indianapolis. In 36 games this year, Oliva has 13 extra-base hits, and a .447 slugging percentage. Wednesday he hit his fifth home run of the minor league season.
He got Oliva that one. 😉 pic.twitter.com/m9BDu7jhCG

The righty came up huge in Altoona’s win on Wednesday, pitching 2 2/3 innings in relief, allowing one hit, two walks and four strikeouts. Altoona has had to scramble to fill innings due to injuries but should get a boost soon with Quinn Priester on his way back.

Anthony began writing over 10 years ago, starting a personal blog to cover the 2011 MLB draft, where the Pirates selected first overall. 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.
