Pirates DVR: Blake Sabol Home Run, Luis Peralta Strikeout, Endy Rodriguez

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

Blake Sabol

The catcher hit his first home run since being promoted to Triple-A Indianapolis. It was his 15th overall of the season going back to his time in Altoona. The three-run home run was part of a five-run first inning for the Indians.

Luis Peralta

The lefty spent some time on the Development List this season trying to work on his control. He had been going through a streak where it looked like it worked, but those issues are starting to surface once again. Peralta walked five batters in 3 2/3 innings on Friday.

The stuff is still there, as he broke off this great back-door breaking ball for a called strike three, one of two strikeouts he recorded on the night.

Endy Rodriguez

Another night, another couple of Rodriguez highlights. He is now 19 games into his Double-A career and has picked up a hit in each of them. His home run in the first inning gave him eight since joining Altoona.

He’s also been fantastic defensively, throwing out eight of the 18 potential base stealers since the promotion (44%).

Termarr Johnson

The Pirates 2022 first round pick recorded another hit Friday, going 1-for-4. His most impressive mark wasn’t from the hit, it was from a fly out he recorded earlier in the game.

Johnson worked the count full before flying out. He against showed a great approach at the plate, and has showed the ability to barrel up the fastball anywhere in strike zone. Not surprising for a player where most outlets rated his hit tool a ’70’.

Jake Sweeney

Sweeney recently returned to the Marauders lineup after missing some time with an injury. He picked up this strikeout in his most recent relief appearance on Friday.

Aaron Shackelford

Shackelford picked up his 25th home run of the season for the Curve, an absolute no-doubter.

Sabol = Segundo favorito jugador
Johnson = the Professional
Endy, words can’t do him justice.


Endy seems to better this year than last year when he almost won the triple crown.

Can anyone comment on Fraizer’s inability to hit this year? Is he totally over matched or is he hitting in bad luck? I was sure he was a future building block for the Pirates.

That’s a great question about Fraizer. The past couple of years he looked like a guy who at worst could be a .270 hitter in the majors and now he looks like an everyday player in Pittsburgh!
