Command issues plaguing Luis Heredia
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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 | CBSSports.com
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."
