The Pittsburgh Pirates saw several of their minor league prospects compete in the Arizona Fall League.  The season is now over, so how did they fair?

Over the last month or so, we have done weekly updates looking at how each Pittsburgh Pirates prospect was performing in the Arizona Fall League.  Now, the Fall League has concluded play and these stats are locked in for the prospects playing in the league.  Mitch Keller, Taylor Hearn, and Kevin Kramer were the top prospects of note representing the Bucs.  Also in the league were other prospects such as Brandon Waddell, JT Brubaker, Mitchell Tolman, and Logan Hill. All of the prospects played on the Glendale Desert Dogs.

Glendale finished with a record of 16 and 14.  They did not make the championship game.  The Pittsburgh Pirates also had two prospects make it to the Arizona Fall League all-star game this season.  That was, of course, Mitch Keller and Kevin Kramer.  Keller ended up getting to start the game and threw two innings.  Kramer was brought in off the bench later in the game and played second base and had one at-bat.  The game itself was featured live on the MLB Network.  It was a good opportunity for many Pittsburgh Pirates fans to see the next potential ace.  So how did the pitchers fair in the Arizona Fall League?
