ALTOONA, Pa. -- A brief look at the top-prospect charts, and Cam Vieaux is nowhere to be found.
A brief look at the pitching statistics for the Altoona Curve, and the result is much different as this 25-year-old lefty, the Pirates' sixth-round pick in the 2016 MLB Draft, has been dominant in both starts this season: Zero runs. Three hits. Six strikeouts against five walks.
"I've just kept doing my thing and I think I've done a better job keeping the ball down than years past at the start of the year, just getting back into the swing of things," Vieaux said following his most recent outing Thursday. "Everything is just feeling pretty good and I'm keeping the ball down."
