Pirates Prospect Watch: Termarr Johnson Hits His First Home Run in 2023



Pittsburgh Pirates, Pirates Prospects, Termarr Johnson

All four of the Pittsburgh Pirates minor league affiliates saw game action on Thursday night, going 2-2 on the day. 2022 first round pick Termarr Johnson hit the first outside-the-park home run of his career for the Bradenton Marauders.

Triple-A Indianapolis (20-21)

The Indians put up ten runs on ten hits without a single homer, grinding their way on base with nine walks in their 10-5 win. 

Catcher Endy Rodríguez went 2-for-5 with an RBI, a run scored and a triple roped the opposite way, showing off a rare set of wheels for a backstop. He also committed a passed ball on defense. 

Third baseman Malcom Nuñez went 3-for-4 with a pair of run-scoring singles and a double. Nuñez came around to score two runs. 

Double-A Altoona (17-17)

The Curve also managed to win last night, outlasting the Bowie Bay Sox in a 13-11 track meet.

First baseman Mason Martin hit a grand slam to jump out to a 9-0 lead in the fourth inning. 

Shortstop Liover Peguero went 3-for-6 on the day with three RBI and a pair of runs scored.

Closer Oliver Garcia picked up his first save of the season, allowing one run and striking out two batters in the ninth inning. 

High-A Greensboro (20-16)

The Grasshoppers couldn’t come back against the Asheville Tourists, falling 2-1. 

Starting pitcher Anthony Solometo gave up just three hits in seven innings, striking out six batters, but allowed a pair of earned runs.

Greensboro outhit the Tourists 10-3, but couldn’t come up with the decisive play as each hit went for a single. 

Shortstop Tsung-Che Chen, designated hitter Jackson Glenn and second baseman Maikol Escotto all managed two hits. 

Low-A Bradenton (20-16)

The Marauders fell to the Clearwater Threshers 10-3. 

Second baseman Termarr Johnson hit his first home run of the season, a solo shot in the fifth inning, adding a single and a pair of walks. He also committed a throwing error (and has struggled on defense to begin the year), one of four that helped sink the Marauders.
