|Command issues plaguing Luis Heredia |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/17/13) Pirates starting pitcher prospect Luis Heredia is five appearances (four starts) into his season for Class A West Virginia. The 18-year-old hurler began the season in extended spring so the organization could limit his workload, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Heredia, who was a major international acquisition in 2011, is 1-2 with a 4.79 ERA and .243 opponents' batting average. Unfortunately, he has struggled with his command, issuing nearly as many walks (14) as strikeouts (16).
|Heredia starting off in Gulf Coast |

(6/18/11) Prospect Luis Heredia will start the season in the rookie Gulf Coast League club. Pittsburgh acquired the 16-year-old's rights from a team in Mexico last August for $2.6 million. Pirates director of player development Kyle Stark said Heredia will be on a very specific and limited workload throughout the summer. "He has made significant improvement as he continues to grow and develop at a very rapid rate, due to how young he is," Stark MLB.com. "He's got really good feel for many things and is a sponge. We're very encouraged by the progress he has made -- personally and professionally."
