WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

The Pirates signed Vera out of Mexico at age 17.

2012
DSL:  2-0-0, 3.49 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, 38.2 IP, 3.7 BB/9, 7.2 K/9

After signing, Vera got into 16 games, including four starts.  He put up solid numbers, including decent walk and K rates.

2013
DSL:  1-0-0, 1.95 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, 60.0 IP, 2.1 BB/9, 6.6 K/9

Vera had a very good season as a starter, throwing strikes and getting groundballs.

2014
R:  3-1-0, 4.80 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 30.0 IP, 1.5 BB/9, 5.4 K/9

Vera pitched in relief in the GCL.  He didn’t allow as many baserunners as you’d think from the ERA, but he didn’t miss a lot of bats, either.

Vera will turn 21 early in the 2015 season.  The most likely destination for him is probably Bristol.
