Very excited about Fraizer. Third round pick in the 2019 draft, #95 overall, out of the University of Arizona. Evidently, he made a pretty big swing adjustment and has been crushing A+ pitching out of the leadoff spot.

He's put up that line in 300 ABs, so a promotion to Altoona is overdue. Plus, he'll turn 24 in the offseason. Obviously, his time at Greensboro has really worked out. But the Pirates should be aggressive and promote him to see if he's another Jason Martin or something more.

Matthew Fraizer currently has a .998 OPS in 376 plate appearances this season. The last Pirates' minor leaguer with an OPS greater than .950 in 350+ plate appearances was Steve Pearce in 2007.

Pirates' Cal Mitchell: Five-hit game in Double-A

Mitchell went 5-for-6 -- all singles -- with five RBI and a run scored for Double-A Altoona on Tuesday.
Once considered a bat on the rise, Mitchell lost a lot of his prospect luster after a subpar 2019 that saw him post a .710 OPS alongside 142 strikeouts in High-A. However, he's been a changed man this season, cutting his strikeout rate all the way from 2019's 28.8 percent to just 17.2 percent this season. He's also sitting on a .283/.334/.453 batting line -- the best of his minor-league career. The 22-year-old doesn't look like he's on a fast track to stardom, but he's at least elevated himself from forgotten man to likely future big-league outfielder.
