Welcome to the Pirates Prospects daily video rundown, where we pull some of the top videos of the Pittsburgh Pirates across the internet.
It wasn’t a good night overall for the former first round pick, but he did pick up a strikeout against Joey Votto, who is rehabbing in Louisville right now.

Marcano, Owings Go Back-To-Back
There wasn’t much offense produced by the Indianapolis in their series opener against the Louisville Bats.
It was Tucupita Marcano and Chris Owings going back-to-back that did a lot of the damage early.

There have been a lot of baseballs getting launched out of the park in Fenway with the Pirates playing the Red Sox. Bae got into the action, hitting a two-run home run for the first of his Major League career.

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.
There’s two things I love about Bae’s play. The catch obviously and Reynolds flying into position to back up the play if Bae doesn’t catch it. I’ve never seen Reynolds take a play off since he’s been on this team.
Bae is quickly proving he is a major leaguer. With Endy not starting in Pittsburgh Infigires we didn’t have an ROY candidate, but maybe we do.
And if jack suwinski isn’t starting against Pivetta then why isn’t Swaggerty up instead?
