WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE

Jerez is the older brother of shortstop Juan Jerez, who was one of the Pirates’ more prominent signings in the 2018-19 signing period.  He has good size and potentially could add some power as he fills out.

2018
DSL:  206/292/279, 136 AB, 3 2B, 2 3B, 1 HR, 15 BB, 42 K, 4-8 SB

Jerez split his time between the outfield corners and finished with poor numbers.  He was hitting respectably until he went 1-for-27 over his last ten games.

Despite the weak debut, the Pirates will send Jerez to the Gulf Coast League in 2019.
