Pirates Farm System

Pirates Minor League Report: Shawn Ross Has Three-Homer Game



2022 Pirates first round pick Termarr Johnson takes a swing.

High-A Greensboro was the only Pittsburgh Pirates’ affiliate to win on Wednesday and there were a couple big performances to highlight.

Of everything that happened down on the farm on Wednesday, Shawn Ross’ three-homer game with Greensboro was the most notable. Though the catching prospect is under the Mendoza Line, he’s shown excellent power this season.

Here is everything that happened in the latest Pirates’ minor-league action.

Gorski and Alvarez accounted for all three of the Indians’ hits in their 3-1 loss to the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp.

Ross’ three homers and another big game from an emerging Pirates’ prospect in McAdoo lifted the Grasshoppers to a 7-1 win over the Winston-Salem Dash.
