Prospect Trends — Week Ending 7/15

The past week was a little light on action, with Indianapolis and Altoona both missing time for their All-Star breaks.  The system continued to get some surprising offense, but a lot of the pitching continues to disappoint.  A couple of pitchers at State College, though, have been getting people out on a consistent basis lately. TRENDING UP Brandon Boggs, OF (AAA): Boggs has been...

Pirates cut 4 players from camp

The Pirates cut 1B Jeff Clement, OF Brandon Boggs, P Tim Wood, and P Daniel Cabrera from Major League camp this morning. There really aren’t any surprises out of this bunch. Boggs and Wood were the two out of the four that had an outside chance at making the club (very outside chance). Boggs was only 2 for 20 this spring. Wood put up a 2.25 ERA over 4 IP and will probably go back...

Twins 10, Pirates 0

Well, I’d say the Twins got sufficient revenge from the beatdown the other day in Fort Myers. At the plate: The Pirates were hitless until the eighth inning. Brandon Boggs broke up the impending no-no with a single, and was thrown out trying to stretch it into a double. Twins starter Francisco Liriano struck out six in five innings.

Minor League Depth — Outfield, Part 1

Until they signed Josh Bell after the 2011 draft, the Pirates had paid almost no attention to traditional power-hitting, corner outfield prospects under their current front office. Of course, under the previous front office, they paid almost no attention to prospects at all, so it’s been a long time since they had a lot of outfield prospects. They do currently have a number of...
