    • Pirates' Luis Heredia: Exposed to Rule 5 draft
      By RotoWire Staff

      The Pirates chose not to protect Heredia from the Rule 5 draft. The 21-year-old signed for $2.6 million as a 17-year-old out of Mexico in 2010. He's struggled with his weight and registered a 5.44 ERA and 1.73 WHIP in 86 innings for High-A Bradenton in 2015. At 21, Heredia still has a chance to turn his career around but it might not be with Pittsburgh.

    • Command issues plaguing Luis Heredia
      By Michael Hurcomb

      Pirates starting pitcher prospect Luis Heredia is five appearances (four starts) into his season for Class A West Virginia. The 18-year-old hurler began the season in extended spring so the organization could limit his workload, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Heredia, who was a major international acquisition in 2011, is 1-2 with a 4.79 ERA and .243 opponents' batting average. Unfortunately, he has struggled with his command, issuing nearly as many walks (14) as strikeouts (16).

    • Heredia starting off in Gulf Coast
      By Adam Moore

      Prospect Luis Heredia will start the season in the rookie Gulf Coast League club. Pittsburgh acquired the 16-year-old's rights from a team in Mexico last August for $2.6 million. Pirates director of player development Kyle Stark said Heredia will be on a very specific and limited workload throughout the summer. "He has made significant improvement as he continues to grow and develop at a very rapid rate, due to how young he is," Stark MLB.com. "He's got really good feel for many things and is a sponge. We're very encouraged by the progress he has made -- personally and professionally."
