WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Agrazal is the son of a prominent baseball coach in Panama.  He was a low-key signing, but has a little more size than some Latin American pitchers.  He throws his fastball in the 87-93 range.

2013
DSL:  6-0-0, 2.40 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, 60.0 IP, 2.6 BB/9, 4.8 K/9

As one of the top starters with the Pirates’ DSL affiliates, Agrazal threw strikes and allowed only a .328 slugging percentage, but didn’t miss many bats.  He was a mild flyball pitcher and didn’t have a platoon split of any size.

2014
R:  3-4-0, 4.20 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, 55.2 IP, 0.8 BB/9, 5.5 K/9

Agrazal spent the season in the GCL rotation and had a similar season to the previous one.  He walked almost nobody, but continued to be very hittable, allowing a .285 opponents’ average, .317 against right-handed hitters.  He was more of a groundball pitcher this time.

So far, Agrazal hasn’t done anything to establish himself as a prospect.  He should be at either Morgantown or Bristol in 2015.
