Who are five players starting the year at Triple-A that could help the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2017?
During each Major League season, every team needs to dip into the minor leagues for help. Unless a team is incredibly lucky, they will do it multiple times each season. This makes having minor league depth very important.
Luckily, the Pittsburgh Pirates have good minor league depth. This is thanks to the strong ability of Neal Huntington and his scouts to identify talent.
Every time will have players that under perform. Additionally, each team will also battle injuries. As was said above, only teams that are incredibly lucky avoid these issues during a Major League Baseball season.
The Triple-A Indianapolis Indians have a strong roster to start the 2017 season. Their roster has a good combination of players with Major League experience, as well as some of the Pittsburgh Pirates’ top prospects.
