Pirates' Matt Gorski: Promoted to Triple-A
Gorski was promoted Wednesday from Double-A Altoona to Triple-A Indianapolis, Andrew Destin of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
This move is more about clearing out space on Altoona's roster for fast-rising pitching prospect Bubba Chandler, who has been bumped up from High-A Greensboro. Gorski, 25, was slashing .238/.296/.437 with 17 homers and 19 steals through 93 games this summer at the Double-A level.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Matt Gorski: Suffers hamstring strain
Gorski exited Thursday's game against Double-A Reading with a hamstring strain, Jarrod Prugar of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
Gorski appeared to suffer the injury while trying to make a catch in foul territory. No official timetable has been provided, though he's likely to miss some game action. Gorski has only a .730 OPS across 307 plate appearances with Altoona, a disappointing mark considering he's in his age-25 season.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Matt Gorski: Sent out to minors camp
Gorski was reassigned Tuesday to the minor-league side of Pirates camp.
Gorski posted an impressive .956 OPS with 24 home runs and 21 stolen bases in 81 games last summer in the minors, but he is 25 years old and has taken only two plate appearances above the Double-A level. The outfielder was 1-for-5 with three strikeouts through three Grapefruit League games this spring.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Matt Gorski: Promoted to Triple-A
Gorski was promoted from Double-A Altoona to Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports.
Given that he has played all year as a 24-year-old, his .278/.357/.599 slash line with 24 home runs and 93 strikeouts in 85 games across Single-A, High-A and Double-A should be downgraded a bit. Gorski has surprisingly played the majority of his games in center field this year, and if he can at least be solid defensively in an outfield corner, that would put a little less pressure on his righty bat. It will be interesting to see whether the Pirates add him to the 40-man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 draft this offseason.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Matt Gorski: Activated from injured list
Gorski (quadriceps) was activated off of the 60-day injured list by Double-A Altoona on Thursday, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
The 24-year-old outfield prospect has been kept out of action since late-June after straining his quadriceps. Before he went down, he slashed .294/..374/.560 with 23 RBI and eight stolen bases in Double-A. As long as he continues to be a weapon on offense, he figures to be on track to join the big-league club at some point down the line.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Matt Gorski: Ready for rehab assignment
Gorski (quadriceps) will report to Single-A Bradenton on Tuesday to begin a rehab assignment, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports.
Gorski looks ready for his first game action since late June after he was placed on Double-A Altoona's injured list due to a quad strain. Assuming he doesn't experience any setbacks while rehabbing at Bradenton, Gorski could be ready to rejoin Altoona early next week. Prior to being shut down with the injury, the 24-year-old outfielder slashed .294/.374/.560 over 123 plate appearances at Double-A.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Matt Gorski: Should play in sim games soon
Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that Gorski (quadriceps) is ahead of schedule in his recovery and could play in a simulated game soon, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Once he gets a few sim games under his belt at the Pirates' spring training facility in Florida, Gorski will likely report to one of the organization's lower-level affiliates for a rehab assignment. Before getting shut down in late June due to the quad injury, Gorski was hitting .294/.375/.664 with 23 home runs and 17 stolen bases between stops at Double-A Altoona and High-A Greensboro....

Pirates' Matt Gorski: Moves to 60-day IL
Gorski (quadriceps) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Gorski landed on the 7-day injured list at Double-A Altoona last week and will require a significant recovery process. The 24-year-old isn't expected to require surgery, but he faces a recovery timetable of 6-to-8 weeks. Whether he'll be able to return to game action prior to the end of the minor-league season remains to be seen.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Matt Gorski: Out with quad issue
Gorski was placed on the 7-day injured list at Double-A Altoona on Thursday with quadriceps injury, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.
A 2019 second-round pick, Gorski has a 1.007 OPS through 23 games in June for Altoona, but he suffered the quad injury Wednesday and is now unavailable. It's unclear how long the 24-year-old is expected to be sidelined, though he'll be out for at least a week.... See More ... See Less
