Osvaldo Bido has never been considered one of the top prospects in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization.
The only time the lanky right-hander ever appeared in Baseball America’s top 30 rankings was prior to the 2020 season. The publication had him as the Pirates’ No. 26 prospect.
However, the minor league season was canceled that year because of the pandemic after Bido had won 12 games at the Class A level in 2019. Bido fell off the list in 2021 and never got back on.
Yet Bido finally made it to the big leagues earlier this month at age 27 and debuted June 14 against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. On Monday night, he made a second start against the Cubs at PNC Park.
