The Pittsburgh Pirates lineup is far from reaching its full potential. We could see much of that potential reach the majors and take over a regular role in 2022.

Over the course of the next year, the Pittsburgh Pirates should see a whole lot of new talent come up through the pipeline. They have one of the best farm systems in baseball and much of that talent will arrive over 2022 and 2023.

The line-up and overall roster could see a ton of turnover, even as soon as next season. The line-up could look a whole lot different by the end of 2022 compared to now. A handful of their top prospects are going to be ready to take over regular roles even by early 2022.

With so much roster turnover, you can project many different line-up combinations the Pirates will have by the end of the 2022 season. But today, I want to look at what I think will be the team’s line-up by the end of the next campaign.
