Only one of the Pittsburgh Pirates’ minor league affiliates was in action on Tuesday. High-A Greensboro had a matchup with the Hickory Crawdads.
Though there isn’t a whole lot to highlight with only one team playing, there was a Pirates’ prospect on hand at PNC Park on Tuesday night.
No, he isn’t being promoted yet, but Liover Peguero was sitting next to the Pirates’ dugout to watch the Bucs take on the San Diego Padres. Prospects in Double-A Altoona will sometimes travel to Pittsburgh to watch the Pirates play.
When it comes to actual prospects in action, let’s dive into what went on with Greensboro.
LF Tres Gonzalez
- Game stats: 2 for 5, one double, one RBI
- Season stats: .268/.387/.350, seven doubles, two home runs, 18 RBIs, 13 steals, 42 games
RHP Yunior Thibo
- Game stats: 1.2 innings, one hit, no runs, no walks, two strikeouts
- Season stats: 1-0, 2.57 ERA, 2er/7.0ip, seven hits, two walks, nine strikeouts, six appearances
Gonzalez had a two-hit performance and Thibo gave Greensboro good work out of the bullpen. but the Grasshoppers were defeated 7-2 by the Crawdads.
Sammy Siani drove in the other of the two Pirates’ runs after drawing a bases-loaded walk.
