Scott Kingery makes MLB Pipelines Top 10 2B Prospects List

Phillies #10 prospect Scott Kingery was highlighted as one of the top second basemen prospects to watch by MLB Pipeline’s Jonathan Mayo. Kingery sneaks onto the list at #10 and not much is said on him in the breakdown of his abilities. This list includes players like the Red Sox’s Yoan Moncada, the Reds’ Jose Peraza, and the Pirates’ Alen Hanson. Safe to say there is no shortage...

S-Rod returns

Everybody’s favorite water-cooler-punching utilityman will be back with the Pirates in 2016; they re-signed Sean Rodriguez for one year, $2.5 million (plus incentives). This certainly isn’t super-exciting news, but I don’t mind it, I guess. With Josh Harrison now locked in to a position (second base, once Jung Ho Kang returns), Clint Hurdle probably really wants a Mr. Everything...

Alen Hanson and the Neil Walker trade (plus: the 2016 ZiPS projections!)

In the immediate aftermath of the Neil Walker trade last week, I wrote that I thought that a straight comparison of Walker to Niese was not necessarily a fair assessment of the trade. Walker, after all, will be replaced on the field and in the lineup by (mostly) Josh Harrison, while Niese will be filling a hole in the rotation. That’s important because it means that, if we use...

A summary of the Pirates’ trade deadline options in light of Jordy Mercer’s injury

The Pirates weren not without holes to address at the upcoming trade deadline before Jordy Mercer’s injury on Sunday, but Mercer’s injury certainly recasts their deadline approach in a whole new light. With a bit of time to consider the situation with Mercer, Harrison, and the team in general, I’ve tried to sort of outline the different ways the Pirates can tackle the deadline...

Prospect Profile: Alen Hanson

Alen Hanson was signed by the Pirates as a teenager way back in 2009, so it probably feels like he's been around forever. I guess this post is my way of saying I hope you didn't fall asleep on him, as he's finally getting close to the major leagues. Don't get me wrong - he won't be up anytime soon with Neil Walker established at second base, but we could see Hanson take over at...

Pittsburgh Pirates Top 10 Prospects

The Pittsburgh Pirates have an incredibly deep farm system. Five of the prospects on this list look like future All-Stars and the remaining players should provide Major League depth at the very least. Many of the players have high ceilings and are years away from being ready for the majors, however. Glasnow and Taillon could become a potent combination at the top of the Pirates...

Mets Absent From MLB.com AFL Top 20

Jim Callis and Jonathan Mayo over at MLB.com recently put together their list of the top 20 prospects in the AFL. As expected, Byron Buxton (OF, Twins) topped the chart. A shoulder injury limited Buxton to 12 games this offseason, although, he still managed to show-off his many tools and slug three home runs. Second on the list is Kris Bryant (3B, Cubs) who is credited with having...
