Pirates Prospect Daily: Bubba Chandler Walks it Off, Altoona Dominates



Pittsburgh Pirates right-hander Bubba Chandler

In Saturday’s version of Pirates Prospects Daily, we highlighted several top prospects who displayed their skills, including Mike Burrows, who pitched a scoreless inning during the Futures Game during All-Star week. Sunday afternoon/evening, several Pirates prospects deserve some highlighting, and yes, Bubba Chandler is one of them. You people just can’t get enough of Chandler.

Here are some of the top performers Sunday down on the farm:

Indianapolis Indians

N/A, the Pirates Triple-A team did not play Sunday and is not scheduled to play until July 22nd against the Twins Triple-A club. The series will take place at Victory Field in Indy.

Although Matt Fraizer hit a homer and Connor Scott went 2-3 at the plate as well, the Curve were propelled to their 8-3 win by good starting pitching from Carmen Mlodzinski and a very impressive three RBI performance from Marcias.
