The Pittsburgh Pirates have a deep minor league system, but who has been he best player at every level of the minors this season?
The Pittsburgh Pirates have one of the best minor league systems in all of baseball. They have depth throughout the system at every level of the minor leagues. They have some of the most intriguing prospects in all of baseball. While they don’t have a Wander Franco-like uber-prospect yet, one could eventually develop into that mold.
But overall, you’re looking at a very talented group of prospects. The Pirates have gotten outstanding production from players at every level and today, I want to take a look at the best player at each of the Pirates minor league affiliates. We’ll be starting with the Bradenton Marauders and moving all the way up to the Indianapolis Indians.
Just to note, this player is still on this team’s roster. For example, right-handed pitching prospect Santiago Florez won’t be eligible for the best player at Low-A Bradenton (although he was great there) because he was promoted to High-A Greensboro. Also note this isn’t based on prospect rankings, rather overall statistical performance this season.
