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.

Mulderig obviously figures to be a project.  The Pirates evidently are happy with his progress, though, as he’ll start off at West Virginia in 2014.
