WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

The Pirates announced Mulderig as a pitcher, but he’s seen very limited time on the mound.  He’s spent most of his time as an outfielder, batting .305 in 112 games, getting on base at a decent clip, with 24 stolen bases in 28 attempts.  Mulderig didn’t pitch at all as a freshman, then struggled in very limited appearances as a sophomore.  He showed improvement on the mound as a swingman in his junior year.  Scouts believe the 6’4″ righty will eventually develop a plus fastball once he concentrates on pitching, so he could be a sleeper as a relief prospect.  As of spring 2014, he was sitting at 90-91.  He signed in late June.

2013
R:  0-1-2, 2.25 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, 12.0 IP, 2.2 BB/9, 6.0 K/9
A-:  0-0-0, 0.00 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, 1.2 IP, 5.4 BB/9, 5.4 K/9

Mulderig pitched in relief in the GCL, except for one late-season appearance with Jamestown.  He put up good numbers except for a low K rate, in a very small sample size.

2014
A-:  1-4-1, 5.45 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, 38.0 IP, 5.0 BB/9, 6.6 K/9
A:  2-2-0, 4.29 ERA, 1.71 WHIP, 21.0 IP, 6.9 BB/9, 8.1 K/9

The Pirates sent Mulderig to West Virginia to open the season.  He struggled with his control there and they sent him to extended spring training in early May.  Once Jamestown started play, he pitched out of the Jammers’ bullpen the rest of the year.  He wasn’t very effective, partly due to continuing control issues.

Mulderig figured to be a project and he took a step backward in 2014.  The Pirates will probably give him another shot at West Virginia in 2015.
