Perrotto: No Major Concern About Pitching Prospect Slipping in Rankings (+)

Pirates Prospects, Quinn Priester

MLB.com released its latest top 100 prospects list Monday and Quinn Priester took a bit of a tumble.

Priester, pitching for the Pittsburgh Pirates’ Triple-A Indianapolis farm club, fell to No. 67 from No. 50. Much of the drop assuredly has to do with his so-so start to the season as the right-hander is 3-3 with a 5.40 ERA through seven starts.

However, that might not necessarily be much reason to be concerned about the 22-year-old.

I was talking to a scout from a major-league organization recently who covers the Pirates’ farm system and Priester was one of the first names he mentioned. He believes Priester will thrive in the big leagues and “be a good No. 3 starter – at the minimum – and you have to keep in mind he’s still pretty young.”
