Travis Swaggerty made his Pirates debut in 2022 after three and a half minor league seasons. In his five Major League games, he didn't exactly impress, but his opportunities were limited. In 2023, he's back in the minor leagues continuing to develop and is hoping to have a chance to join the Pirates lineup again by the end of the season.
