Pirates Prospects

Ben Cherington usually keeps things close to the vest when he meets with the media.

That is why it was quite telling when Cherington readily acknowledged at the end of this past season that one of his major priorities was finding a new first baseman.

The closest the Pirates had to a regular first baseman was Michael Chavis, who started 82 games at the position. He was designated for assignment in the waning days of the season.

Yoshi Tsutsugo got 34 starts at first and Josh VanMeter was in the lineup there on 17 occasions. Bligh Madris, Zach Collins, Yu Chang, Ben Gamel, Diego Castillo and Kevin Padlo were also part of the revolving door.
