First Pitch: Day Fifty Five – This Week on Pirates Prospects

It’s now been a full month of weekly article drops over at Pirates Prospects.

This week, I have a column on the Pirates’ building efforts, plus an article on Cal Mitchell and a look at the Pirates promoting players from Double-A.

Wilbur Miller concludes his series giving an early preview of each minor league team, looking at Indianapolis. Anthony Murphy has a video breakdown of Quinn Priester. Jason Gindele looks at the top hitting skills displayed in the system in 2021. John Dreker has an update on lower-level pitching prospect Cristopher Cruz.

Check out the links below for all of this week’s articles.

I’ll have an update on the next stages for the new Pirates Prospects in tomorrow’s First Pitch.

Ethan Hullihen will have a lockout update this morning on No Quarter.
