BRADENTON, Fla. – The workouts at the Pirates’ minicamp are less intense than the ones in spring training.
As the camp continued Tuesday at Pirate City, the drills were basic. The position players took a few rounds of batting practice and fielding groundballs or flyballs while the pitchers either played catch or worked out in the weight room.
Nevertheless, it has been fun to watch top prospect Ke’Bryan Hayes take grounders at third base. Regardless of how hard the coaches and instructors hit fungoes, nothing gets past the 21-year-old.
