Pittsburgh Pirates prospect Jared Triolo has seemingly flown under the radar for much of his minor league career, but that may be starting to change.

Triolo has had a nice year for Triple-A Indianapolis since returning from injury this season. On Wednesday, he made some headlines by stealing four bases in one game.

The 25-year-old is arguably the top defender in the Pirates’ system and has shown he can be capable with the bat.

Even though Low-A Bradenton was rained out, it was a loaded Wednesday as both Indianapolis and Altoona played double headers. Here are the Pirates’ prospects of note.

Indianapolis (30-40)

  • Season stats: .246/.382/.475, nine doubles, one triple, 10 home runs, 31 RBIs, sox steals, 58 games
