Checking In: A Ball Hitters

The Pirates aggressively pushed a foursome of players from rookie ball all the way up to A ball this season and those players for the most part are fairing rather well.

Alen Hanson: .406/.449/.797

Willy Garcia: .196/.217/.286

Jose Osuna: .304/.333/.411

Gregory Polanco: .296/.367/.593

Obviously Garcia’s line is pretty bad and Osuna’s is only so-so but overall its good to see this group performing well. Hanson’s numbers at this point are just plain ridiculous and since he is a shortstop it would be a huge boon for the Pirates if he can keep hitting at any where near this level. Osuna s intriguing because he is a 1B with power potential which is something the Pirates are missing. As for Garcia and Polanco they are both outfielders and I think both of them by the end of the season will add to our already good stable of outfield prospects.

The other real interesting hitter in A ball is Josh Bell. His numbers so far have been decent but not spectacular.

Josh Bell: .269/.273/.404

There are two other players that I was very interesting to keep an eye on this season and both of them are doing fairly well to start the season.

Jodaneli Carvajal: .294/.333/.471

Dan Gamache: .268/.354/.390

Those two players have been sharing the 2B job while Carvajal has been playing some third and Gamache has been the DH some. There are a few other interesting names but these are the biggest names and the ones that stand out to this point.
