WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES
|Contreras signed late in the signing cycle that began in July 2014, although he was still only 17 when he signed.
Contreras got into only three games in his debut season.
In 15 games, all but one out of the bullpen, Contreras put up good numbers apart from his ERA.
Despite his showing in 2016, the Pirates sent Contreras back to the DSL, where he pitched in relief. His ERA improved, but his numbers regressed otherwise.
Contreras pitched in relief in the GCL and put up just decent numbers.
So far, Contreras hasn’t done anything that would mark him as a prospect. He could be at Bristol in 2019.
