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

Bubba Chandler

After dominating the Florida Complex League, Bubba Chandler finally made the move up to Bradenton where it didn’t take long for him to also make an impact.

In his first at-bat, Chandler knocked a double to the left center gap. He would later single, scoring both times he got on base. The two-way prospect will also make his Single-A pitching debut this week at some point.

Ji-Hwan Bae

Bae tied his career high in home runs on Tuesday, hitting his eight of the season. He now has 28 extra-base hits, which is a career high as well.

Jase Bowen

Calling Jase Bowen a ‘swiss army knife’ seems about right, as there isn’t much on the field he can do. He stole his 20th base of the season, is second on the team in home runs, and plays just about every where on the field. Tuesday he played centerfield and made this awesome catch.

Connor Scott

There may have not been a player who got off to a better start to the season than Connor Scott. While he came back down to earth, he’s still have a decent season. With this single on Tuesday, Scott is one RBI away from tying his highest monthly output.

Maikol Escotto

Escotto began the year with the Greensboro Grasshoppers, struggling enough to the point they sent him back to the Florida Complex League. After just three games the Pirates sent him to Bradenton, where he’s been the last week or so. He’s hit a lot better, including launching this bomb on Tuesday.

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.
