Pirates DVR: Quinn Priester, Mike Burrows, Jack Suwinski

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

Quinn Priester

Priester made his Double-A debut on Sunday, pitching three innings, allowing one hit and striking out three batters. His start didn’t go well in Greensboro, and Bradenton he didn’t miss many bats, but Priester threw more curveballs with Altoona, resulting in more whiffs.

Mike Burrows

It was a pretty special day in the minor leagues, as the top two pitching prospects still in the minors pitched — at new levels as well. Burrows made his Triple-A debut and struck out four in three innings, also allowing four hits and two runs in the process.

Jack Suwinski

Of all the Pirates prospects expected to make their debut this year, Suwinski probably wasn’t the one that many picked to actually be in the running for NL Rookie of the Year. The outfielder hit his second walk-off home run, which also was his third overall on the day. Suwinski now is tied with Bryan Reynolds for the team lead in home runs.

Matt Gorski

Gorkski hit his 22nd home run of the season, and hasn’t slowed down since being called up from Greensboro. He now has double the amount of anyone player in the Pirates system.

Travis Swaggerty

After a slow start to the season, Swaggerty is hitting every bit like you’d expect a former first round pick waiting for an actual opportunity in the majors. In the meantime, here’s his go-ahead two-run home run on Sunday in the eighth inning.

Rodolfo Castro

Castro really stepped into this three-run home run in the top of the first, his fifth with Indianapolis this season.

*Seeing that Altoona CF camera again*


Burrows had some bad luck in the third inning when Taylor Davis thought he was KeBryan Hayes and cut Castro off on a ball hit by Delino DeShields allowing Shields to beat it out. Should have been the second out and only one run might have scored in the inning.


Priester has basically the same delivery in the wind-up as in stretch, very low knee lift. I mean, you are supposed to take advantage of a wind-up and use your right leg and the 10″ height of the mound, Help your velo and your arm by using your body a little. Maybe he’s having control issues? Maybe he’s having trouble syncing up his body from a real wind-up? Maybe pitching coaches just trying to keep things simple…..idk.

Burrows looks great!


burrows looked pretty good in his aaa debut. i’d still like to see him add a cutter or something.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
