While most of the Pittsburgh Pirates top prospects are age 23 or younger, they have a handful of unranked potential late bloomers in the minor leagues.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have plenty of young minor leaguers on the verge of making the major leagues. Quinn Priester, Endy Rodriguez, Nick Gonzales, Liover Peguero, and Mike Burrows are all 23 years old or younger, and they’ve all played a decent amount at the Double-A level. Most young prospects are projected to be impact players in the future, but there are many late-blooming, productive major leaguers around the league.
These guys may not be top prospects, but they had pretty decent seasons at Double-A last season and could potentially impact the 2023 season. The Pittsburgh Pirates may have the opportunity to give them an extended look in the major leagues next season, and if they do get that shot, we may see an unexpected factor play into the team’s future.
