The Pittsburgh Pirates have added a handful of starting pitching prospects since the start of the rebuild, so what does the organization's starting pitcher depth look like now?
The Pittsburgh Pirates went into this rebuild with so-so starting pitching in the minor leagues. While there were some decent prospects, there wasn’t much on the immediate horizon. But now, the system has gained its fair share of pitching prospects.
From trades, drafts, and other methods of acquiring young talent, the Pirates have steadily built up a decent core of young pitchers throughout the minor leagues. As we did with the Pirates’ minor league catchers, we are here today to look at the prospects the Pirates have for starting pitching. We’ll first start with the top prospects and work our way through to depth guys.
