Winter Leagues: Back-to-Back Multi-Hit Games for Liover Peguero

Winter League action for the Pittsburgh Pirates prospects over the last two days. Monday only had two games played across winter ball and only one player saw action, so we take a look at the results from Monday and Tuesday below.

Monday

In the Dominican, Liover Peguero went 2-for-5 with two singles and a run scored.

Tuesday

In the Dominican, Liover Peguero went 2-for-4 with his second stolen base.  He’s hitting .265 with a .698 OPS in 35 plate appearances.

Jeremy Beasley tossed a scoreless inning on 11 pitches, picking up one strikeout. He has given up four runs in three innings over four appearances.

In Venezuela, Ali Sanchez went 0-for-3 in his third game of the season.

In Mexico, Fabricio Macias went 1-for-4 with a run scored. He’s batting .250 with a .639 OPS

Jared Oliva went 1-for-5 with his first extra-base hit (a double) and two RBIs. He’s hitting .319 with a .653 OPS in 12 games.

The Sydney Blue Sox announced their second Pirates player for the winter. Sammy Siani will join Dylan Shockley as teammates playing under Pirates scout/Sydney manager Tony Harris. They are getting five players from the Pirates, not including Solomon Maguire, who was already signed by Sydney. While I don’t want to spoil the team’s announcements ( I do wish they would hurry up with the news), I can tell you that they are getting a fringe top-30 prospect in the system, and a player from the FCL Pirates will be making quite a jump in his level of competition. All three unnamed players are position players.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball.

When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.

I hope Siani has a breakout year down under. If he doesn’t he might be another in a long line of wasted high draft picks made by the Pirates.

I like a good guessing game so I’ll go with one of Dariel Lopez or Escotto, Shalin Polanco and Tsung Che Cheng.

Abby idea why they would delay announcing the players instead of just listing them all right away?

Ain’t autocorrect great?
