Morning Report: A New Focus For the 2014 Draft Picks

Yesterday we focused on the excellent control shown by all 14 college pitchers that the Pittsburgh Pirates drafted. On the offensive side, it looks like they focused on some hitters that could take walks. Jamestown had four batters in the top 21 in the league in walks, while the only college hitter from the 2014 draft on Bristol(Jerrick Suiter) finished second in the league in walks...

Morning Report: Pirates Draft Picks Are in Control

The Pittsburgh Pirates went heavy with college pitchers this year and they all seemed to have something in common, they could throw strikes. Some of the pitchers they drafted displayed exceptional control, especially the starters at Jamestown. Duncan throws a nice four-pitch mix, topping out at 93 MPH Tyler Eppler, Montana DuRapau, Alex McRae and Frank Duncan led Jamestown in innings...

OK, so now THIS is the biggest series of the year

The late afternoon yesterday was not kind to the Pirates: in Pittsburgh, Chris Heisey hit his second home run of the afternoon (and only his seventh of the year!) to help the Reds steal a 3-2 win from the Pirates. In St. Louis, the Cardinals turned a 6-4 deficit in the bottom of the eighth inning into a 9-6 win over the Cubs. The effect was dramatic: instead of being tied with the...

WASHINGTON (AP) The Pittsburgh Pirates have put right-hander Stolmy Pimentel on the 15-day disabled list because of a sprained right ankle and activated right-handed reliever John Axford.

This Baseball is out for Blood

Here’s something you don’t see everyday: an animate object that may or may not be possessed by demons. Last night’s Tigers/Pirates game featured one peculiar play. I’m not one to believe in the supernatural but this is quite the oddity. Watch here as a pitch thrown by Pirates reliever Stolmy Pimentel proceeds to bounce off the dirt, strike catcher Russell Martin in the...

Pirates Injury Update: Jordy Mercer, Stolmy Pimentel, Neil Walker

The Pittsburgh Pirates continue to stay in contention for a playoff place but they are going to have to overcome a few injuries if they are going to be playing come October. With Andrew McCutchen and Neil Walker currently sidelined, Jordy Mercer joined them as a concern during Thursday's game when he exited with right forearm tightness, while Stolmy Pimentel is heading to...

Pirates acquire famous mustache-haver, occasionally effective reliever, John Axford

After watching Stolmy Pimentel and Brandon Cumpton turn close games into sure-fire losses on back-to-back days, the Pirates acquired John Axford from the Indians this evening. It doesn’t appear that the Indians will get anything in return for Axford other than salary relief, as the Pirates are now on the hook for what’s left of the $4.5 million the Indians owed him this year...

Tigers 8, Pirates 4

The Pirates had a good chance to stay hot as they rolled in to Detroit on a two game winning streak, facing a young pitcher making his debut while their best starter in the second half took the mound. Things were going along quite well for about half the game, but then it all fell apart and their recent momentum came to a halt. The offense was good enough against Buck Farmer, generating...

Cardinals 5, Pirates 2

Unlike the last two nights, this was a plain old loss that you can’t really complain too much about. It had its frustrating moments for sure, but the Pirates were outplayed from start to finish and that’s going to happen from time to time. The thing is, that’s what makes the two walk off losses with all the men LOB with RISP hurt so much. You’re going to get flat-out beat...

The trouble with the bullpen

If you want to look at the first two games of this Pirates/Cardinals series with absolutely zero emotion and only with cold logic, the conclusion that you would probably draw is this: the Pirates have continued to play well this week, but a combination of bad luck and a thin bullpen has cost them two games that could have been wins. The Pirates play a lot of close games: three of...

Sunday morning (recaps, previews, ruminations, etc.)

Let’s start with last night’s game: I’m inclined once again to ignore the ninth inning debacle, because it was different than Friday’s ninth inning debacle and Stolmy Pimentel giving up two two-run home runs in the ninth inning of a six-run game feels like an isolated incident. I won’t pretend like Jason Grilli coming in and serving up a single to the first hitter he faced...

The day after yesterday

Here’s all we know right now: Francisco Liriano is on the disabled list and Stolmy Pimentel is back with the Pirates. The Pirates did not stretch Pimentel out that much on his rehab assignment, so he’s unlikely to start in Liriano’s place on Sunday. We’ll have to wait until later to see who is likely to start in his place, though smart money would be on Casey Sadler or Vance...
