PBN Around the Horn: Five Under the Radar Pirate Prospects



Welcome to the PBN Around the Horn. Here you’ll find news and notes from across Major League Baseball, your Pittsburgh Pirates, and around the Sports Now network.

I’ve been sitting here wondering what more could be said about the lockout that hasn’t been said, and honestly, I think we all need a break from lockout talk. Let’s look at the players that aren’t in a labor dispute, the minor leaguers. Most Pirate fans know the top-end Bucco prospects but let’s look at some under-the-radar guys that could get noticed in the 2022 season. 

  1. Tsung-Che Cheng, 20 years old: .311/.449/..442 slash line, .940 OPS in the FCL.
  2. Po-Yu Chen, 20 Years Old: 42.0 IP, 2.57 ERA, .213 Opponent BA. between the FCL and Low-A.
  3. Geovanny Planchart, 20 Years Old: .321/.398/.464 slash line, .862 OPS in the FCL 
  4. Juan Jerez, 20 Years Old: .296/.394/.500 slash line, OPS of .894 in the FCL.
  5. Bladimir Dotel, 19 Years Old: 29.2 IP, 3.34 ERA, .185 Opponent BA in the FCL.
