Tweets and retweets by a number of Pirates players and minor-leaguers (including Tony Sanchez and Phil Irwin) as well as numerous Facebook posts indicate that Pirates minor-leaguer Evan Chambers has passed away. He was 24.

Chambers was the Pirates' third-round pick in 2009 out of Hillsborough Community College in Tampa. The outfielder got as high as Double-A Altoona in 2012, but played just four games in 2013 after a foot injury.
