Let's take a look at the best prospect the Pittsburgh Pirates have to offer at all nine positions on the diamond right now.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have one of the best farm systems in baseball right now. It’s deep with talent at nearly every position. However, they’ve also graduated a ton of prospects over the last few seasons. Many of those prospects are now regular big leaguers. But the Pirates still have much more to offer in their farm.
Today, I want to take a look at the best prospect the Pirates have at each position. We will start with catcher and make our way through, ending with a relief pitching prospect. I want to note that the position has to be the player’s primary position. So for example, even though Nick Gonzales has played some shortstop, he is primarily a second baseman. The only position I will give an exception to is outfield because nearly all outfielders start out as a CF.
With that out of the way, let’s get into our first prospect.
