WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Regalado was already 19 when he signed.  He’s developed very good control, but doesn’t miss a lot of bats.

2011
DSL:  1-2-0, 1.80 ERA, 1.60 WHIP, 5.0 IP, 3.6 BB/9, 9.0 K/9

Regalado pitched only briefly in his debut.

2012
DSL:  5-1-1, 3.45 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, 57.1 IP, 2.5 BB/9, 6.4 K/9

Regalado pitched mostly as a starter.  His control was good, but opponents hit .274 against him.

2013
DSL:  6-4-0, 2.60 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, 69.1 IP, 0.5 BB/9, 6.8 K/9

Regalado had a strong season over 14 starts.  Opponents hit .227 against him and he walked almost nobody.

2014
A-:  6-3-0, 5.70 ERA, 1.57 WHIP, 30.0 IP, 3.9 BB/9, 4.8 K/9

Given his age and experience, the Pirates moved Regalado up to Jamestown, where he pitched in relief except for one start.  He didn’t pitch well, as even his control slipped.  He had a reverse platoon split, with right-handed hitters pounding him for a .981 OPS.

Regalado hasn’t made a lof of progress and he’s already eligible for the Rule 5 draft.  If he returns next year, he may be back in the NYPL at Morgantown.
