The Pittsburgh Pirates got great performances from many of their top prospects. However, there were some seasons that flew under the radar despite being quality performances.
Looking at the Pittsburgh Pirates minor league system, there’s a lot to look forward to. From the likes of Nick Gonzales to Quinn Priester, the farm is chock full of highly talented prospects. We’ve done more than our fair share of coverage on the Pirates’ farm this season. We’ve looked at the breakout prospects, the high-end prospects, and everything in between. But there are still some names that really haven’t been covered all that much.
Granted, when you have a system as deep as the Pittsburgh Pirates, there’s only so much you can cover at once. These prospects had quality years in the minor leagues and didn’t get nearly the attention they deserved. They had good seasons but just flew under the radar. Though that doesn’t mean they don’t have a future with the team.
So today, I wanted to shine a light on some of these unsung heroes of the Pirate minor league system. Give some attention to the ones who have been overlooked this season.
