@Liljonnyrancid Oh are there? Last years top overall pick Henry Davis should be behind the dish, if not Blake Sabol who just cracked the Pirates Top 30. He’s Troy Polamalu’s cousin. Nick Gonzales at 2B is touted as the best hitter in the minor leagues. Liover Peguero at SS, people say he can
Liover Peguero was charged with his 16th error at shortstop tonight, but he’s been better as of late with the glove. I still think he might end up an outfielder before he comes up to Pittsburgh. Some of that may depend on Oneil Cruz.
@BrianCornell16 They have a lot of talent in Altoona. Nick Gonzales, Liover Peguero, and Henry Davis will be up in the next few years. Also add in Mike Burrows at Triple A. He will be a stud. The Pirates are closer to competing than most think. There's reason for optimism
@northsidenotch We as fans have had to deal with them far longer in Pittsburgh. The fans in Indy will be okay. They can suffer a little bit while waiting for Nick Gonzales and Liover Peguero to arrive. 😄
Here is @Pirates potential 2023 lineup:
1) Liover Peguero (SS)
2) Nick Gonzalez (2B)
3) KeBryan Hayes (3B)
4) Henry Davis (C)
5) Matt Gorski (LF)
6) O'Neil Cruz (RF)
7) Jacob Gonzalez (1B)
8) Matt Frazier (CF)
9) Jack Suwinski (DH/4th OF)
Sabol, Marcano, Mitchell
The Pirates have officially recalled SS Oneil Cruz and OF Bligh Madris (both will be in starting lineup against Cubs). To make room on the active roster, they optioned SS Liover Peguero to Double-A Altoona and placed RHP Zach Thompson on the 15-day IL.
Pirates recall Oneil Cruz and select the contract of Bligh Madris.
Liover Peguero has been optioned to AA Altoona and RHP Zach Thompson has been placed on the 15-day injured list with right forearm nerve inflammation (retro to June 18).
We have recalled SS Oneil Cruz and selected OF Bligh Madris from Triple-A Indianapolis.
To make room on the 26-man roster, INF Liover Peguero was optioned to Double-A Altoona and RHP Zach Thompson was placed on the 15-day injured list.
Quick thought: Tomorrow, teams will have to reduce their rosters to 13 pitchers. The Pirates currently have 14. If we're looking at potential roster moves to promote Cruz and Madris, a pitcher and Liover Peguero would be the most logical. Would still need to open up a 40 man spot

Liover Peguero’s stint with the Pirates will likely be short, but he won’t be leaving Pittsburgh without a couple milestones — as well as a confidence that he can carry the rest of the year. https://t.co/uAkrBlxZhR
Liover Peguero didn’t just make his major-league debut for the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday afternoon, their No. 5 prospect made franchise history by becoming their first player born in the 21st century. All eyes were on the 21-year-old Dominican as ... https://t.co/glx1TWGM5E

Lunchtime Pirates reading: A SS was called up last night. It wasn't the one you expected.
“As of now, we plan on (Liover Peguero) being here (Saturday) and then we’ll play off that.”
Does that mean Oneil Cruz is on the verge of a callup?
We’re you surprised Pirates called up Liover Peguero instead of Oneil Cruz? So was Peguero.
“I didn’t even believe that I was gonna be here. And then it was like I just blinked once and I was already here, so it’s kind of crazy.” https://t.co/hgOjv60Feu
