The Pittsburgh Pirates minor league system is filled with talented players, so what guys led the organization in these statistics?

The Pittsburgh Pirates have a very impressive farm system. We’ve done plenty of coverage on how prospects have been performing, how the system looks, as well as what players are doing well and helping their own stock.

But most of the Pirates’ minor league affiliates have ended their seasons (aside from Triple-A). Many of the Pirates’ top prospects have done well, and many other minor league players have performed well for the organization, even if they weren’t high-ranking prospects.

With the season concluding earlier this month, I want to take a look at what players did the best. We’ll be taking a look at leaders in statistical categories today. For this, I used a sample size of at least 300 plate appearances for position players, and 10 games started for pitchers. We’re also not looking at any specific level. Just in general, what player led in this specific stat. So without further ado, let’s take a look at our first leader.
