Pittsburgh Pirates Breakout Candidates: JT Brubaker vs Bryse Wilson
The Pittsburgh Pirates have many unproven players. Two potential breakout pitchers, JT Brubaker and Bryse Wilson, could have strong seasons in 2022. But which of the two has a higher potential?
The Pittsburgh Pirates roster is filled with many unproven commodities. Some are young talents that are high-ranking prospects like Oneil Cruz, Roansy Contreras, and Miguel Yajure. Many on the 40-man are unproven and were recently added leading up to the deadline to protect players.
Regardless, there are still handfuls of potential breakout candidates on the roster. Today, I want to take a look at two RHPs who could have good 2022 seasons following some mediocre performances in 2021. These two were once considered noteworthy pitching prospects in the Pirates’ and Atlanta Brave systems. That’s JT Brubaker and Bryse Wilson.
The two right-handers are potential long-term arms depending on how they perform the next season or two. So, between Brubaker and Wilson, which is the better of the two breakout candidates?
