Pirates Postgame: Keller’s Career Longest Start Give Bucco’s Win
Today may have arguably been the best start by Mitch Keller as he went 7 full innings and Tyler & DiNardo discuss just what about it was so impressive. Besides Keller’s 2-seamer still impressing, he has started to add and tweak even more to his pitch mix. To close out his 3rd save of the year, Yerry De Los Santos came in during another high leverage spot and got 4 outs by strikeouts in his 1.1 innings pitched.
How about the return of the Kevin Newman and now Jake Marisnick? Newman has been producing since his return and finished today with 3 hits while Marisnick coming fresh off the IL finished with a double, home run, and a stolen base. Is there potentially any trade value in either of them or what would a return possibly be?
Let’s also not leave out this pleasantly performing catcher on this roster now in Jason Delay. Known for the glove and boy have we seen some of it so far, he hit his 3rd double on the year as we discuss why he should finish the year in Pittsburgh.
