Pittsburgh Pirates Starting Roster: STAT Cast Breakdown

  1. Jerod Dyson Lefty but throws R

30 steals last year unfortunately he can’t get on base with much consistency nearing bottom of league numbers in all categories of batting. Does have an above avg walk rate at 10% avg is 8%. Can play him both vs. lefty and righty.

2. Bryan Reynolds S

.387 BAPIP or batting avg for balls in play. not much of a base stealer but showed good pop with .189 ISO and 16 HR in his rookie yr. Expected BA of .296.

3. Greg Polanco L

Needs the AB’s to back into the swing of being a 20 homer 10 steal a yr guy.

4. Josh Bell S

SlG, Woba Exit Velo and hard contact elite last year. What worries me is if he’s a Jesus Agular. Bell fell badly in the 2nd half of season.

5. Colin Moran L

Improved his batting numbers except declined in OBP. Maintains .277 AVG. line drive rate of about 25%.

6. Kevin Newman R

OBP of .353 resulting in .800 OPS despite lack of power. 16 stolen bases. BA .308

7. Adam Frazier

Played a lot with 608 PA, average hitter in all respects. no upside.

8. Stallings, not a good player, no power spent too much time in minors now 30 yr old.

Gerrimo Herredia R

was batting 1st in LU for Rays in 10 games last yr. mostly bottom of order but Good hitter vs. lefties only.

 

 

Sp4. R

micth Keller

95 mph high end prospect fastball thrower better vs righties by about an earned run so there’s a spot to attack with lefties.
