Here we go, the official sites for the Pirates minor league clubs for 2023.

AAA - Indianapolis

AA - Altoona Curve

High A - Greensboro Grasshopers

Low A - Bradenton Maurauders


That does it for all but the FC league teams and the Dominican Summer League.

A few notable assignments today:
Henry Davis, Endy Rodriguez to High-A Greensboro.
Nick Gonzales, Quinn Priester, Liover Peguero, Jared Triolo, Matt Frasier, Jack Suwinski and Tucupita Marcano, Mike Burrows, Carmen Mlodzinski and Tahnaj Thomas, Emmanuel Mejia to Altoona.
Oneil Cruz, Roansy Contreras, Mason Martin to AAA.

Altoona looks stacked.

A good night for the Minors. A combined no hitter at Indy. Cruz with an RBI, couple hits for Cal Mitchell. At Altoona Nick Gonzales with a couple hits, and at  Greensboro Henry Davis with a couple hits tonight. It is interesting to see how the players in the Minors are doing each night.

I didn't realize Tucupita Marcano had been sent all the way down to AA.  That's a major backwards step for a guy who got some playing time in the majors with San Diego.

Marcano had never played above A-ball when he made the SD opening day roster last year after a hot ST and when injuries opened up a spot. But he only started 9 games and was sent to AAA, skipping AA. The Pirates kept him in AAA where he struggled. At this point they feel he can get more PT at Altoona and would benefit from facing AA pithing, which he previously skipped.

Maybe a road trip to Altoona this Summer. Would be nice if some of the members could go

Has anyone been checking on the production or lack thereof,
of O'Neil Cruz?

He is hitting .250 with two doubles , a triple and 3 rbi. I would think by months end he will have a few homers. I think he needs this time at Indy, so when he arrives in Pittsburgh he is here to stay.

In 9 games at Indy, Mason Martin is hitting .400 (14 for 35) with 5 2Bs, 3 3Bs and 2 HRs and just 9 Ks.

Cruz is in a slump now hitting .175. Cal Mitchell going the other way hitting .372. Mitchell currently not on 40 man roster, and if he continues to hit ,he could make the Bucs add him, and bring him up.

What happened to all of those gnashing their teeth, crying service time manipulation?

Oh, the can't be wrong crowd. Had he started with the Bucs and had to get sent back down, it would have been, they rushed him and he wasn't properly developed.

I know a guy on the board that argues like that.
