Pirates DVR: Austin Hedges Defense, Oneil Cruz Home Run, Michael Kennedy Pitching

Welcome to the Pirates Prospects daily video rundown, where we pull some of the top videos of the Pittsburgh Pirates across the internet. 

Austin Hedges

There will be a lot of give and take from Hedges. He’ll give you some great defense, as evident here, but a lot of it will be offset by his offense. On the defensive side of things, after Colin Holderman gets a strikeout, Hedges throws out a base stealer to end the inning.

Oneil Cruz

First of many for the young shortstop, as he turns a Hunter Greene fastball around and sends it into the stands.

Michael Kennedy

The Pirates have been aggressive when it comes to selecting high upside prep pitchers in the draft. They mainly went the college route in 2022, but still landed left-handed pitcher Michael Kennedy early.


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.
