Hurdle: Pirates in 'no hurry' with Nick Kingham
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/12/15) With Brandon Cumpton out for the season, the pitchers on the Pirates' depth chart have moved a step up in their pursuit of a major-league roster spot, but manager Clint Hurdle indicated Thursday that the team won't rush prospect Nick Kingham to the majors, MLB.com reports.
"Will it change his seeding?" Hurdle said.. "Yeah, because it changes everybody's as they all move up a notch. But we're in no hurry with Nick. He went from Double-A to spend some time in Triple-A [in 2014] and he was able to build, and I believe some of that has carried over into here. We want to make sure he continues to grow and gets to a very competitive spot when time comes for him to arrive."
Kingham tossed two perfect innings Thursday and has now racked up four scoreless innings with three strikeouts and no walks in two spring outs.
Pirates prospect Nick Kingham throws two scoreless innings Saturday
|by Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer|
|(3/7/15) Pirates pitching prospect Nick Kingham threw two shutout innings with two strikeouts in his spring training debut Saturday against the Rays and admitted after to having some nerves, reports The Pittsburgh Tribune.
"I'd be lying if I said no," Kingham said. "I was excited when (Longoria) got in the box. I knew I had to make a good pitch."
Kingham was able to stay within himself and finish off his appearance in strong form.
"I felt I got ahead, which makes my whole job easier," Kingham said. "Overall, I was pretty consistent with my stuff. I was happy with it. I feel I have cleaned up my delivery. I keep it as simple as possible and I feel it allows me to repeat my delivery."
Manager Clint Hurdle was happy with what he saw from Kingham Saturday.
"I see a young man that's embracing everything here. He went out and made pitches," Hurdle said. “He had to pitch out of the stretch his first inning out there. He kept his poise."
