His dad also played college ball so he comes from good bloodlines.The younger Goedert has a commitment to Wichita State for next season, though they just fired their long-time coach, so the Pirates may have another way to lure him away from college besides the family angle. This year at Noesho Community College, he led the team in doubles, homers, RBI’s, runs, hits, total bases and slugging. He is an athletic kid, playing basketball in HS as well.

Pittsburgh Pirates’ Gerrit Cole Ready To Impress After Promotion

The Pittsburgh Pirates officially announced what many had speculated for days that blue chip prospect Gerrit Cole will be promoted to the majors. Cole will make his major league debut Tuesday against the reigning world champion San Francisco Giants. No pressure kid, oh and by the way you facing off against former CY Young winner Tim Lincecum. The 22-year old right handed hurler is...

Fourth Round: Pirates Draft Cody Dickson

The Pittsburgh Pirates drafted LHP Cody Dickson from Sam Houston State in the fourth round of the MLB draft. Dickson is a 6′ 3″, 180 pound left hander who has had some problems with his delivery, but has a projectable frame and an easy throwing motion. He had a 4.26 ERA in 95 innings this year, with a 91:51 K/BB ratio. That was a big increase in strikeouts from last year, when...

Francisco Liriano and Pirates blank Cubs 2-0

Francisco Liriano tossed seven shutout innings and the Pittsburgh Pirates went on to beat the Chicago Cubs 2-0 on Friday. Liriano allowed just two hits while walking a season high five batters in the day contest at Wrigley. He also recorded eight strikeouts. On the year Liriano has a 1.47 ERA and 47 strikeouts though 36 innings of work. Pirates closer Jason Grilli notched his 23rd...

Pirates 6, Cubs 2

The Pirates finally scored some runs for A.J. Burnett on Saturday, but he didn’t need many in one of his best performances of the season. A.J. only struck out five and benefited from a few sharply hit outs, but he was remarkably efficient and gave the Pirates exactly what they’ve been looking for – an outing deep in to the game. Before today, no Pirate starter had even started...

Draft Day Two Recap: Lefty Pitchers, Shortstops, Groundballs, and Upside

Yesterday the Pirates took some high upside guys, drafting Austin Meadows and Reese McGuire in the first round, then taking Blake Taylor in the second. Today they continued going for upside, adding a lot of guys who will need some development, and maybe an adjustment or two, but have the tools, pitches, and skills to pay off if the Pirates’ development system can make the proper...

Pirates 2, Cubs 0

 The Pirates still haven’t snapped out of their offensive funk, but today they were able to ride some spectacular pitching as they ended a three game losing streak and started this weekend’s series in Chicago with a shutout win. Francisco Liriano delivered another excellent start. His control problems that we feared this offseason were on full display – he walked five and...

Gerrit is coming

The Pirates officially confirmed that Gerrit Cole will start on Tuesday against the Giants yesterday, and today Travis Sawchik at the Trib has a great article about Cole's trip through the minors. I'd recommend that you read the whole thing, but there were a couple of things that really stood out to me.  One is that the Pirates have been working with Cole on steepening...

Game 62 Preview: Pirates at Cubs

Pirates (36-25) at Cubs (24-34) 4:05 PM–Wrigley Field, Chicago MLB.com Gameday TV: ROOT The Bucs go for a series win on the road today – always a nice feat even if it’s just the Cubs. This will be the Bucs’ third afternoon game in a row, and they’ll play a fourth tomorrow as well. Pregame news: Rumor has it that Gerrit Cole could be coming up to start for the Bucs on Tuesday...

Cubs 4, Pirates 1

The Bucs couldn’t get the sweep on Sunday, as their bats cooled off quickly and the pitching had a strange afternoon (in a mostly bad way). Jeff Locke started off the game strong, but quickly ran in to some serious control problems. He walked some batters in the early innings, but worked around them with several strikeouts and a few quick innings (plus a pickoff to end the third...

Reagan Bazar

REAGAN BAZAR RIGHT HANDED PITCHER Born: June 27, 1995 Height: 6′ 7″ Weight: 230 Bats: Switch Throws: Right Drafted: 33rd Round, 989th Overall, 2013 How Acquired: Draft High School: Salado HS (TX) Agent: N/A WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES Bazar seems like a typical Pirates pick. He’s a huge pitcher with a projectable frame, and currently throws 90 MPH. He...

Game 53: Cubs 4 Pirates 1

Well, that was strange. Jeff Locke seemed to get off to a really good start, but completely unraveled as the afternoon went on and he stopped being able to find the strike zone. He gave up a run before he gave up a hit and walked seven hitters. Justin Wilson bailed him out of trouble in the sixth, but served up a three-run home run to Cody Ransom in the seventh (just the second he...

Finishing move

Let's not mince words: the Cubs are terrible and the Pirates could really use a sweep after their terrible week against the Reds and Braves. Clint Hurdle is not pulling his punches with a Sunday lineup today; all of his regulars are on the field, including Russell Martin. After spending some time worrying about Jeff Locke's impending regression, his last three starts...
