Pirates Prospect Watch: Palacios’ Monster Game, Terrero Hits Clutch HR



Pittsburgh Pirates

A couple Pittsburgh Pirates’ prospects had big nights in their respective wins on Tuesday night.

Outfilder Josh Palacios drove in five runs for Triple-A Indianapolis while fellow outfielder Enmanuel Terrero hit a clutch, go-ahead home run for Bradenton.

While Terrero and Palacios may have been the brightest spots down on the Pirates’ farm, a handful of other prospects had big games as well.

Here are the top performers.

Indianapolis (9-13)

RF Josh Palacios

  • Game stats: 3 for 5, one home run, five RBIs, one run, one walk
  • Season stats: .308/.357/.538, one home run, five RBIs, three games

3B Ryan Vilade

  • Game stats: 1 for 3, one walk, three runs, one HBP
  • Season stats: .323/.400/.419, one home run, three RBIs, eight games

Palacios had a monster night in only his third game with Indianapolis as the Indians defeated the Columbus Clippers 10-4.

Pirates’ prospect Ryan Vilade was on base three times and scored as many runs in the win.

Altoona (7-8)

3B Domingo Leyba

Pirates’ prospect Fabricio Macias hit his first homer of the year for the Curve. Right-hander Kyle Nicolas had an interesting line — he gave up seven runs in 4.2 innings but none of them were earned. The right-hander didn’t walk a batter and punched out six.

Greensboro (11-5)

  • Season stats: .229/.383/.479, three doubles, three home runs, eight RBIs, six steals, 13 games

Solometo had a pretty good outing for Greensboro while Jarvis slugged his third homer of the year, but Greensboro were defeated by the Rome Braves 7-2.

Right-hander Grant Ford threw 2.1 scoreless innings of relief with three strikeouts while Pirates prospect Tsung-Che Cheng swiped his seventh base of the season.

Terrero’s three-run home run in the top of the ninth inning carried Bradenton to a 3-1 victory over the Dunedin Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Pirates’ prospect Dominic Perachi held the Blue Jays scoreless despite some control issues. His six punch outs were a season high.
