DateQuestionAnswer
2017-06-13 12:00:00 (link to chat)Last year Jose Pirela was labeled as org. fodder on these pages. This year he has 15 HR in AAA/MLB with 8 SB. Has anything changed in his profile, especially with his power? Kind of unprecedented for him.
(Ruxton from Philly, PA)
Thirteen of those homers were in El Paso and the PCL. I wouldn't put a ton of stock into that stuff. Being an up/down guy for the current incarnation of the Padres is pretty much org fodder. (Craig Goldstein)
