Demilio: Pirates Have Third Catching Prospect Worth Keeping Eye On (+)



Pittsburgh Pirates, Pirates prospects, Abrahan Gutierrez

Two of the Pittsburgh Pirates top prospects at the moment are both catchers. Henry Davis and Endy Rodriguez carry quite a buzz as they move up the ranks, and rightfully so.

Davis was the first overall pick in the 2021 MLB Draft by the Pirates and has been on fire this year at the plate.

In 51 games between Double-A Altoona and Triple-A Indianapolis, Davis was slashing .284/.433/.541 with 11 home runs, 30 RBIs and nine steals.

Davis, of course, was recently promoted to Pittsburgh and already has a couple games under his belt at the big league level, though none of those appearances have come behind the plate.

While Rodriguez has struggled this season in Triple-A, the backstop has hit at every level as he’s climbed the ranks, allowing the Pirates to not have to hit the panic button.

While both prospects are worthy of their top prospect status, there’s another minor league catcher worth keeping an eye on — Abrahan Gutierrez.
