Pirates Prospect Watch: Safe to Say Henry Davis Has Double-A Figured Out



Henry Davis, Pirates prospects, Pittsburgh Pirates

In what is becoming a reoccurring theme, Pittsburgh Pirates prospect Henry Davis had another big game at the plate for the Double-A Altoona Curve.

Davis recorded three extra-base hits, including a pair of home runs, giving him seven long balls on the season. The 2021 first-overall draft pick has been consistently brilliant during the 2023 season with the Curve.

Davis was one of several Pirates’ prospects who had a noteworthy performance on Tuesday night. Here are some of the other standouts.

Indianapolis (15-18)

CF Chavez Young

  • Game stats:  2 for 3, one triple, three RBIs, one walk, one steal
  • Season stats: .171/.284/.317, five doubles, two triples, one home run, 11 RBIs, nine steals, 27 games

2B Nick Gonzales

  • Game stats: 1 for 4, one double, one walk
  • Season stats: .267/.350/.442, five doubles, two triples, two home runs, five RBIs, one steal, 23 games

Young was essentially the only one who cashed in for the Indians in their 11-3 loss to the St. Paul Saints. Gonzales recorded his fifth double of the season and was on base twice.

One of the top Pirates’ prospects in Endy Rodriguez also hit a double.

Altoona (13-13)

C Henry Davis

  • Game stats: 3 for 4, two home runs, one double, two RBIs, two runs, one HBP
  • Season stats: .316/.464/.711, four doubles, one triple, eight home runs, 17 RBIs, five steals, 21 games

RF Matt Gorksi

  • Game stats: 3 for 5, one home run, one double, one RBI, one run
  • Season stats: .227/.286/.427, three doubles, four home runs, 12 RBIs, five steals, 20 games

In addition to Davis’ incredible night at the plate, Gorski nearly matched him with a terrific game with the stick. An 11th-inning bullpen meltdown, however, led the Akron RubberDucks to a 12-6 win over the Curve.

Pirates prospect Andres Alvarez drove in a pair and was on base three times in the loss.

Greensboro (17-11)

RF Jase Bowen

  • Game stats: 2 for 4, one home run, one double, four RBIs, one run
  • Season stats: .274/.355/.526, six doubles, six home runs, 23 RBIs, five steals, 24 games

CF Hudson Head

  • Game stats: 2 for 3, one run, one walk
  • Season stats: .271/.347/.482, five doubles, two triples, three home runs, nine RBIs, three steals, 23 games

Greensboro continued the hot start to the season as did Bowen, who had another big game in the Grasshoppers 7-5 win over the Jersey Shore BlueClaws. Head had two hits and was on base three times in the contest.

Pirates prospect Tsung-Che Cheng was on base twice, doubled, drove in a run and scored once. Right-hander Will Kobos struck out three in 1.1 innings en route to his first save of the year.

Bradenton (16-12)

LHP Dominic Perachi

  • Game stats: 5.0 innings, three hits, one run, one walk, nine strikeouts
  • Season stats: 1-0, 2.61 ERA, 6er/20.2ip, 21 hits, nine walks, 27 strikeouts, five appearances/five starts

LF Enmanuel Terrero

  • Game stats: 2 for 5, one RBI, one run, one steal
  • Season stats: .323/.429/.473, four doubles, two triples, two home runs, 17 RBIs, eight steals, 25 games

Perachi’s strong start was in vain as the Marauders were defeated 7-6 by the Lakeland Flying Tigers 7-6 in 10 innings. Terrero, who was impressed for much of this season, did so again.

Pirates prospects Termarr Johnson and Javier Rivas each also had two hits. One of Johnson’s was a double.
