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.

2015
DSL:  1-0-0, 2.70 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, 6.2 IP, 0.0 BB/9, 6.8 K/9

Contreras got into only three games in his debut season.

2016
DSL:  6-1-0, 4.00 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, 36.0 IP, 2.5 BB/9, 8.8 K/9

In 15 games, all but one out of the bullpen, Contreras put up good numbers apart from his ERA.

2017
DSL:  6-1-3, 3.18 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, 34.0 IP, 3.7 BB/9, 6.1 K/9

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.

2018
R:  3-0-0, 4.22 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, 32.0 IP, 3.1 BB/9, 6.2 K/9

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.
