The Pittsburgh Pirates Triple-A affiliate roster might start the season more exciting than the major league roster, but who could you expect to see at Indianapolis?

This season the Pittsburgh Pirates Triple-A affiliate’s roster, the Indianapolis Indians, wasn’t all that exciting. Miguel Yajure and Travis Swaggerty were exciting to watch to start the season but missed a good chunk of the year. The latter lost the entire season due to a dislocated shoulder. Many of the players were more of organizational depth than actual prospects.

But things are starting to look very promising with the Pittsburgh Pirates rebuild. The Triple-A roster as a whole could look a whole lot stronger to start the 2022 season. The Pirates have also been somewhat aggressive with their minor league promotions, so many top prospects may be looking to open the 2022 season at Triple-A.

With so many potential prospects that could make their Triple-A debuts to open the 2022 season, I think it’s worth at least previewing their potential opening day. Quite honestly, it may be more exciting than the Pirates’ major league Opening Day line-up.

Many of the team’s top prospects will be looking to open 2022 at Indianapolis. With so many noteworthy prospects just one step away from the major leagues, the rebuild looks like it may start to bear fruit by next season. It’s one of the most promising developments for Pirate fans who should be excited to see these prospects make a potentially large impact in the Major Leagues.
