Pittsburgh Pirates Players Set To Benefit From The WBC
Spring Training will have a very different look for the Pittsburgh Pirates the next few weeks. Nine players, five of which are Major League regulars, will be away from the team for the World Baseball Classic. Due to this, there are players who will benefit.
Pirate fans should be excited to see Austin Meadows play a lot the next few weeks. Meadows is the next Pirate superstar and the future face of the franchise. And that future will be here sooner rather than later.
Jose Osuna could be a big part of the Pirate bench in the very near future, and the same goes for Alen Hanson. So seeing these two players get extended playing time will also be worth keeping an eye on.
While Elias Diaz is no longer the catcher of the future, he could be the back up to Francisco Cervelli starting next season. He may also be trade bait for the Bucs this summer. So, hopefully, he will take advantage of this opportunity.
Next: The Pirates Have A Blocking Problem
Life is about opportunities. All you can ask for in life is to be given an opportunity. Once you get that opportunity what you do with it is completely up to you.
Due to the World Baseball Classic there are players in Pirates’ camp that are about to be given an opportunity to shine. What they do with these opportunities is completely up to them. Hopefully for both these players and the Pittsburgh Pirates, they take advantage of this opportunity and run with it.
