Let's take a look at a potential breakout prospect for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2024 at each position on the diamond

Last season, the Pittsburgh Pirates saw a handful of their top prospects take another step forward. Most were pitching prospects like Jared Jones, Bubba Chandler, and Anthony Solometo breakout. However, there were some position players who broke out, including Lonnie White Jr. and Jack Brannigan. All five of them should climb Pirates prospect rankings at the start of next season and will be interesting to watch in 2024.

But the Pirates have a lot more, even younger prospects primed to take a leap forward in 2024, and that's exactly what I want to look at today. Each position has at least one Pirates prospect you could identify as a breakout prospect of some sort. Maybe it's their first full pro season, maybe their first look against pro pitching didn't go so well, or maybe they missed some time with injury. Either way, they'll be looking to become some of the Pirates' best prospects after 2024.
