|Pirates move Stetson Allie up the ladder |
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(6/19/13) The Pirates have promoted prospect first baseman Stetson Allie to High Class A Bradenton, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Allie has made his conversion from pitching to hitting a success thus far. In 66 games at Low Class A West Virginia, Allie hit .324/.414/.607 with 17 home runs and six stolen bases. At 22, he was a touch old for the league, so the promotion will be a good test of if his talent can play.
|Pirates changing prospect's position |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(6/4/12) According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review the Pirates have decided to move pitcher Stetson Allie off the mound and back into the batters box, deciding that the high-priced pitching prospects future lays in the field. Allie, a hard-throwing right-hander that the team gave $2.25 million to in the 2010 Draft as a second-round pick, has walked 37 batters in 26 2/3 career innings, which has prompted the move. "Stetson was one of the few athletes in each draft to be considered a prospect as a pitcher and as a hitter," general manager Neal Huntington said. "We believed his highest upside was as a pitcher. We obviously were very pleased to sign him as a pitcher. Since then, we've faced some challenges with him as a pitcher."
