This year, the Pittsburgh Pirates have graduated a lot of their top pitching prospects to the major leagues. Fans are still waiting to see Trevor Williams make his debut and Steven Brault to permanently remain in the big leagues.  So who are the next pitching prospects to get excited for in minors?

The Pittsburgh Pirates are notorious for producing quality pitching prospects.  They consistently draft projectable pitchers, and are always trying to acquire more prospects in trades.  With that, the Pittsburgh Pirates look to be in good shape going forward.

As of now they may not have the top names to follow as they have had over the last few years.  However, the Pittsburgh Pirates organization has done a really good job of developing raw pitchers in the lower minors into top prospect, see Tyler Glasnow, Nick Kingham, and Chad Kuhl.  Even with that, the Pirates have enough talented pitching depth at every level of the minors that they should find some future breakout prospects.  Even if they do not have future Taillon’s or Glasnow like prospects now, but they could in a few years.
