Pirates Could Have a Bligh Madris & Michael Chavis Platoon at First (+)



Pittsburgh Pirates Bligh Madris

The Pittsburgh Pirates have been doing something at the Triple-A level that has been flying under the radar for a few days now.

The Pittsburgh Pirates played Bligh Madris at first base for six straight days at Indianapolis. In spring training drills, the Pirates tried the outfielder at first base. Perhaps the only surprise is that it took this long to circle back.

Madris is in his age 26 season and tasted some big-league action for the Pirates, and honestly, I thought they would’ve played him at least a few times over at first base then, but I guess they wanted to wait.

Versatility has long been a hallmark of the Pittsburgh Pirates, especially prospects hoping to find another avenue to the show. Further telegraphing the possible change, a post on Madris’ Instagram featured a first baseman’s mitt.
