WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Street is from Australia, but came to the US to play college baseball.  His career got a boost when he lowered his arm slot to just above sidearm.  He doesn’t throw with much velocity, sitting 83-86 MPH, but has a lot of sink and plus command.  He also throws a slider and changeup.  Street was a fixture in the UTPA rotation, but profiles as a reliever in pro ball.  Baseball America had him ranked 485th overall, and said he has the chance to be a future middle reliever.  As a senior, Street signed quickly.

2014
A-:  1-1-5, 0.98 ERA, 0.61 WHIP, 27.2 IP, 1.3 BB/9, 6.8 K/9

Street had an outstanding debut, serving as the closest thing Jamestown had to a closer.  He allowed only 13 hits in 27.2 IP, and seven of them came in three innings in the only two outings in which he allowed earned runs.  Opponents hit just 135/194/167 against him, right-handed batters just 102/154/102.

Street doesn’t have great, or even good, stuff, and didn’t miss a lot of bats in his debut, so he’ll have to prove himself at every level as he moves up.  The Pirates could try him at Bradenton in 2015.
