BEALYN CHOURIO SHORTSTOP Born: March 31, 1994 Height: 6’0″ Weight: 167 Bats: Both Throws: Right Signed: Int’l Free Agent, 2011 Country: Venezuela Agent: N/A WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES Chourio is a relatively tall shortstop with a wiry build.  He missed the 2012 season due to arm surgery, but was in minor league camp in 2013.  He looked impressive in batting practice, showing good power from the left side.  He was only 5’10″, 140 when the Pirates signed him, but now is probably even bigger than the 6’0″, 167 listed for him in the Pirates’ media guide. 2011 VSL:  200/308/233, 90 AB, 3 2B, 14 BB, 16 K, 2-10 SB Chourio handled a little less than half the shortstop duties for the Pirates’ VSL entry.  Other than putting up good walk and K rates, he did little at the plate, which isn’t unusual for a 17-year-old in his first pro season. 2012 DSL:  —/—/—, 0 AB Chourio had Tommy John surgery and effectively missed the season.  He got into two games, but had no plate appearances. Although he was doing some drills at Pirate City, Chourio wasn’t fully healthy.  He is only in Bradenton to rehab his injury.  He will return to the Dominican Republic when Spring Training ends to continue his rehab and prepare for the DSL season.
