Don't sleep on these three Pittsburgh Pirates players. They have the potential to make an impact for the team this season.
A sleeper player is described as a player who is “generally undervalued but carries significant upside.” The Pittsburgh Pirates definitely have a handful of these kinds of players on their roster. They have a handful of different players who have the potential to break out or rebound next year based on some of their underlying numbers or based on improvements they made in the second half of the season or later.
These are the kinds of players that we will be looking at today. Whether they showed some improvements in 2023 or something that could make them a standout player in 2024 but were generally glossed over by Pirates fans or the greater baseball world, they will be on today’s list.
