Joel Hanrahan Announces Departure From Pirates Organization

Pirates Prospects

Joel Hanrahan took to twitter on Wednesday to announce that he will be leaving the Pirates organization and will be looking for a new opportunity elsewhere. Hanrahan was serving as the pitching coach for Triple-A Indianapolis.

Hanrahan was in his fifth year coaching in the Pirates’ organization and his first with the Bucs’ top minor league affiliate. The 39-year-old was the pitching coach for the Altoona Curve in 2019, and spent 2020 at the Pirates’ alternate training site in Altoona. He quickly worked his way up the Pirates minor league system after serving as the pitching coach for the Bristol Pirates in 2017 and the West Virginia Power the following season.

Rave reviews have followed Hanrahan as he shot up the ranks of minor league ball. He has played an instrumental role in the development of some of the Pirates top pitching prospects, and has widely been speculated to one day become a big league pitching coach.

In addition to finding a new pitching coach, the Indians still have yet to name their manager heading into 2022.

Hanrahan spent seven years in the big leagues, four of which came in Pittsburgh. He was a two-time All-Star with the Bucs and compiled 82 saves in his Pirates’ career.
