2024 Pittsburgh Pirates Top Prospects

For the past several years, I’ve liked the Pirates farm system.  I thought Ke’Bryan Hayes was going to be a 20-20 guy.  I’ve also liked Liover Peguero and Henry Davis – a lot.  Loved Endy Rodriguez.  Don’t get me started on Mitch Keller.  And yet, the team is terrible, and each player hasn’t lived up to what I thought they could become.

So, with some trepidation, I have to say I like their farm system – A LOT!  Sure, Paul Skenes doesn’t have great spin on his fastball, but the dude throws 100 MPH.  I think Bubba Chandler has the upside of a #1 starter.  Termarr Johnson will hit, with a chance to hit 20 home runs.  I could go on.

I think they are only a couple of years away from finally competing.  Am I going to bet the farm on it?  Absolutely not!
