Pirates Prospects

Pirates Prospect Watch: Endy Rodriguez Just Keeps Hitting



Pittsburgh Pirates

It’s starting to sound like a broken record, but Endy Rodriguez is tearing the cover off the ball since his promotion to Indianapolis.

What he’s done in four games at Triple-A is what the emerging Pittsburgh Pirates’ prospect has done throughout the season, and really his minor league career. The 22-year-old just keeps hitting.

After a two hit night on Friday, Rodriguez’s batting average dropped to .533 with the Indians.

Indianapolis fell to the St. Paul Saints 4-1, snapping their five-game winning streak, but not all was lost in the effort.

Here are the top performers from the Bucs’ Triple-A affiliate.

Indianapolis Indians (74-71)

DH Endy Rodrigiez

  • Game: 2 for 4
  • Season: .533/.500/.800, two doubles, one triple, seven RBIs, four games

3B Malcom Nunez

  • Game: 1 for 3 with a walk
  • Season: .333/.500/.667, one home run, one RBI, three games

Rodriguez isn’t the only one off to a hot start in Triple-A. Nunez has now been on base in each of his first three games in Indianapolis after reaching twice on Friday.

Catcher Blake Sabol drove in the Indians’ lone run with a sacrifice fly, which plated Tucupita Marcano.

Infielder Aaron Shackelford singled for his first hit since he was promoted to Triple-A alongside Rodriguez and Nunez.
