Can someone explain to me why Peguero is somehow anointed the future at SS, almost as if he was savior potential? I'm looking at his complete minor league career....where is the bat? He had a big 2019, but everything since then suggests a guy OPS around .700 at best. I'm looking at his fielding stats, and they don't jump out at you in any shape or form.

Maybe I'm not seeing something here. I only ask because some people think Cruz has no business at SS, and needs to find another position. There is absolutely nothing that I see that suggests the Pirates should move Cruz off SS in favor of Peguero, who isn't even in AAA yet. Peguero shows to be a better fielder in the minors than Cruz was, but he isn't all that at .935 fielding pct compared to Cruz's .918

I know fielding pct is an old stat, but it's the best I can use for a quick comparison. Especially if you're considering one guy over another.

Since the AA season ended today, the Pirates have plans on moving some of the Altoona players to Indy to finish their season. A list of players going to Indy has not yet been posted by the Pirates or any of their reporters.

With only about 8 games remaining in the AAA season I am very surprised that the Pirates have not added the players from Altoona to Indy which BC mentioned would happen during his Sunday radio show on The Fan. At that time he did not want to mention any players  who were going to be promoted until the Pirates could properly inform them. Possibly tomorrow an official announcement will come from the Pirates.

That will happen this week. They were waiting for Altoona's season to end, which it did on Sunday.

Indy has only 8 games remaining this season so it better happen in the next couple days because they are running out of time.

6 Altoona players were promoted to Indy. The players are Priester, Rodriguez, Gorski, Nunez, Shakleford, and Selby. I would like to see the Pirates promote Rodriguez for the final series of this year just like they did last year with Cruz.

Endy, Priester, Nunez, Sabol all having greats seasons. You have to feel Endy is the real deal. All he has ever done is hit. Cool

Going to be interesting if Davis and Gonzales start next year at AA, both have missed too much time.

Endy has already had two very good games at Indy. He appears to be a very professional hitter. Also I think with the Bucs sending Davis and Gonzales to the Fall League they hope they  will get additional experience due to their lost time because of injuries this season. If they perform well this offseason they could begin 2023 at AAA. I think there is light at the end of the tunnel.

It's incredible how often the Pirates need roster space and suddenly find someone who has been playing is actually injured.

"Catching prospect Henry Davis of the Pirates came out of yesterday's Arizona Fall League game after taking a backswing to the head while he was catching. Took BP today, but he's going through concussion protocols and they're obviously erring on side of caution." - Mayo

Is this kid ever going to go through a week where he's not being hit by something?  Let's hope a car isn't next.
