Potanko: Kieran Mattison Brings Certain Element to New Role With Pirates (+)



Pittsburgh Pirates

The Pittsburgh Pirates have got themselves in a unique situation regarding the talent they have in their system. There isn’t a ton of power, but the Pirates have an abundance of athletic/speed threats on the basepaths and in the field.

Some names come to mind, like Termarr Johnson, Tsung-Che Cheng, Ji-Hwan Bae, and Braylon Bishop. Sure, the Pirates have some power coming through the system, but it seems like they have a build and a type regarding player acquisitions.

On Dec. 21, the Pirates released their list of minor league managers and coaches, and one name was missing from the list. That name was Kieran Mattison.

Mattison, in 2021, served as the Pirates’ Double-A manager in Altoona while also serving as the outfield and baserunning instructor.

Flash forward back to the present day, and it comes out that Mattison is still in the Pirates organization but would now operate as the full-time outfield and baserunning instructor.
