Off to a strong start this season four of the most highly touted prospects the Pittsburgh Pirates currently have at the Double-A level are pushing for a promotion to Triple-A Indianapolis
It has been discussed at length on the website in recent months, but the Pittsburgh Pirates have one of the best farm systems in all of baseball. Across the four levels of the minor leagues the team that is arguably the most talented right now is the Double-A Altoona Curve.
Entering play on Friday the Curve sat 10 games over .500 on the season at 24-14. A big reason the Curve are off to a this great start is due to their deep, talented roster. There are four specific players on the roster who are making a push to earn a promotion to Triple-A Indianapolis.
These four players are all ones who fans of the Pittsburgh Pirates know well, as well as being four prospects who fans are expecting to be key cogs for the Pirates the next time they are contenders. Even if a promotion does not come soon, each of these players will likely reach the Triple-A level before the end of the 2021 season.
