Prospects AAA Experience

We all would prefer to see the Pirates play prospects instead of the AAAA guys like Gamel, Alford, Chavis, Allen, Vogey, and Yoshi. However if you look at the Bucs top 50 position player prospects, they lack experience above AA. The prospect with the most AAA experience is Tucupita Marcano with 355 AAA ABs. All of the other players who have played above AA (Martin, Swaggerty, Cruz, Castro, Smith-Njigba, Mitchell) have less than 50 AAA ABs.

The only player I can see jumping from AA to The Show is Nick Gonzales. He appears like BRey to have an advance approach to hitting which could translate to the majors. The Bucs might also slide in Marcano if Allen or Alford don't make the trip north with the team.

So for now, accept the AAAA guys until June when the first of the prospects should begin to appear.
