Have they announced what Pirate prospects will head to the AFL this fall? I'd love to see Alex Dickerson go.

Yes, its Vic Black plus these 5 so far - Adalberto Santos, Gift Ngoepe, Matt Curry, Brandon Cumpton and Tyler Waldron

I think they have one spot left.

Hey, thanks. I wondered about Jarek Cunningham to make up for some lost ABs from early in the season.

Those aren't bad choices, although the pitchers probably won't throw too many innings. I think they all played full seasons. I will definitely be tracking Curry and Santos, however. Santos was an intriguing player who kind of leveled off late in the season.

I'm guessing Hanson and Polanco are a year away from making sense for the AFL?

That's what I was thinking. They along with Garcia and Osuna, and apparently Dickerson.

Yeah, curious that Dickerson isn't going. Very good year in high-A, solid college background. Seems like the kind of guy you'd want to invest in. Again, maybe they're thinking he's a year away.

Could be just a PT issue with Curry going at 1B/DH. Curry will be at AAA and is almost the same prospect as Dickerson.

Good point - if they send Dickerson, they're pretty much telling Curry he's done. Might as well send him and see how it goes. If he doesn't improve, then Dickerson can go next year.

You'd think that between Hague, Curry and Dickerson, one of 'em could develop some real pop (while they're still in the Pirates organ-I-zation)....
