  • Pirates' Quinn Priester: Shows increased slider velocity

    Priester threw his slider at an average of 88.7 mph in his Grapefruit League debut Wednesday, Alex Stumpf of reports. Priester reached the majors in 2023, but he struggled to a 7.74 ERA and 1.70 WHIP across 50 innings in Pittsburgh. One notable problem was a dip in velocity, something he aimed to change by reworking his delivery this offseason. The early returns were positive, as his slider velocity ticked up 3.2 mph compared to the 2023 campaign. The movement on the pitch also changed and now resembles more of a cutter than a slider. Priester is competing for a back-end rotation spot this spring and turned in two perfect innings with one strikeout Wednesday against the Tigers.

  • Pirates' Quinn Priester: First career quality start

    Priester did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing two runs on two hits and five walks over six innings in a 4-2 loss against the Reds. He struck out four. Priester allowed no hits through five, but following a Jonathan India single to lead off the sixth, TJ Friedl hit a two-run homer to break up the shutout. Priester allowed no more damage to complete six innings for the second consecutive outing and earn his first career quality start. He entered the contest with an 8.61 ERA spanning 38.2 innings over eight appearances (six starts) in his first big-league season, but finally showed why the Pirates made him their first-round draft selection in 2019. He'll look to build off Sunday's effort with one more 2023 appearance, currently slated to take place next weekend at home against Miami.

  • Pirates' Quinn Priester: Lasts six innings in bulk role

    Priester didn't factor into the decision Tuesday as the Pirates were routed 14-1 by the Cubs, giving up four runs on five hits and two walks over six relief innings. He struck out two. Bailey Falter got the start but curiously got the hook after giving up two runs in the first inning, with Priester taking over to begin the second. The rookie right-hander ended up handling his biggest workload in eight big-league appearances -- his previous high was 5.1 frames -- but he also served up his 10th homer, leaving him with a 8.61 ERA, 1.73 WHIP and 29:21 K:BB through 38.2 MLB innings. It's not yet clear if the Pirates will continue deploying Falter and Priester together as a tandem in some fashion, but if so the duo would line up for two more appearances before the end of the regular season.

  • Pirates' Quinn Priester: Earns win in mediocre outing

    Priester (3-2) allowed four earned runs on four hits and one walk while striking out four across four innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Nationals. He was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Wednesday and followed opener Colin Selby. Priester worked four effective innings, during which the only hit he allowed was a solo home run. However, things fell apart when he stayed for his fifth frame and allowed a three-run home run. The outing was encouraging from the perspective that Priester induced nine swinging strikes on 62 total pitches and was in the zone consistently, but he's now allowed at least four earned runs in all but one of his seven big-league appearances.

  • Pirates' Quinn Priester: Tosses four innings

    Priester yielded three runs on five hits and three walks over four-plus innings in Friday's win over Milwaukee. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision. Priester coughed up a pair of runs in the first inning but otherwise held the Brewers in check until Carlos Santana led off the fifth with a solo shot. Friday's start was Priester's shortest but it was also his first time allowing fewer than four runs. The right-handed rookie has registered an 8.69 ERA with a 16:14 K:BB through four career starts. Priester is currently lined up to face Atlanta at home next week.

  • Pirates' Quinn Priester: Getting another start Monday

    Priester is scheduled to start Monday's game against the Padres in San Diego. Priester was roughed up for seven earned runs on seven hits and two walks in his MLB debut July 17 against Cleveland, but he was at least able to save the Pirates' bullpen to some degree by covering 5.1 innings. Despite the poor showing last week, Priester will get another chance to prove he's worthy of sticking around as the Bucs' No. 5 starter. He'll return to the hill Monday on six days' rest.

  • Pirates' Quinn Priester: Stumbles in debut

    Priester (0-1) took the loss Monday, allowing seven runs on seven hits and two walks over 5.1 innings against Cleveland. He struck out two. Priester started strong with three perfect innings before things unraveled. He gave up three runs over the next two innings before Cleveland tagged him with four runs in the sixth. The 22-year-old threw 47 of 73 pitches for strikes in his MLB debut. If he sticks around for another start, Priester is currently lined up to face the Angels on the road this weekend.

  • Pirates' Quinn Priester: Contract officially selected

    Priester had his contract selected by the Pirates and he'll officially start Monday against the Guardians. Operating as one of Pittsburgh's best prospects, Priester will get his first shot at big-league competition Monday. The right-hander has compiled a solid 4.31 ERA and 8.7 K/9 ratio in Triple-A this season and he'll take on a Cleveland lineup that's been slumping lately, averaging 3.8 runs scored over their last 10 contests.

  • Pirates' Quinn Priester: Added to taxi squad

    The Pirates added Priester to the taxi squad Sunday ahead of his major-league debut Monday against the Guardians. Priester will have a day to get acclimated before the Pirates officially select him to the 40-man and 26-man rosters. Widely considered a top pitching prospect in the organization, Priester has pitched to a 4.31 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 84:35 K:BB in 18 starts (87.2 innings) with Triple-A Indianapolis this season. The 22-year-old is an athletic right-hander with a four-pitch mix, and he will get a relatively soft landing in his debut against a Guardians offense that ranks among the bottom five in scoring.

  • Pirates' Quinn Priester: Better results in May

    Priester has a 1.13 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 19 strikeouts in 24 innings over four May starts for Triple-A Indianapolis. His 7.1 K/9 over that stretch leaves a lot to be desired, but Priester has averaged six innings per start this month, which in itself is an impressive feat for a 22-year-old pitcher at Triple-A. Priester had a 7.78 ERA and 1.68 WHIP in 19.2 innings across five April starts. He could get a look in the majors sometime this summer if he remains healthy, and the strength of his game will be generating weak contact (56.2 percent groundball rate).

  • Pirates' Quinn Priester: Reassigned to minors camp

    Priester was reassigned Thursday to the minor-league side of Pirates camp, Kevin Gorman of reports. Priester finished the 2022 season at Triple-A Indianapolis and is headed back there to begin the 2023 campaign. The 22-year-old right-hander could push to make his MLB debut at some point this summer, though 2024 is probably more of the focus.

  • Pirates' Quinn Priester: Strong performance in rehab outing

    Priester (oblique) threw three scoreless innings and retired nine of the 10 batters he faced in a rehab appearance with Single-A Bradenton on Thursday. Priester took the mound for the first time in 2022 after being placed on the 7-day injured list April 8. The Pirates will continue to build up his pitch count, and he will likely report to Double-A Altoona upon being activated. Given his delayed start, Priester may stay with Altoona for the entire campaign.

  • Pirates' Quinn Priester: Still not close to game action

    Priester (oblique) did some long tossing from 105 feet Wednesday but has yet to be cleared for mound work, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Since Priester will likely need to complete multiple bullpen sessions and multiple live batting practice sessions before being ready to begin a rehab assignment, he's likely two weeks or more away from game action. Once he's fully ramped up, the 21-year-old is expected to settle at Double-A Altoona.

  • Pirates' Quinn Priester: Set to miss more weeks

    Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that Priester (oblique) won't return to game action for approximately two weeks, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Priester landed on the 7-day minor-league injured list last week, but he hurt his oblique about a week before. The right-hander will likely be forced to miss a month of action in total, but he should make his 2022 debut at Double-A Altoona once he's cleared to return.

  • Pirates' Quinn Priester: Out with oblique injury

    Priester landed on the 7-day injured list with Double-A Altoona on Friday due to an oblique injury, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The exact nature and severity of Priester's injury have not yet been announced. Priester is a fairly interesting prospect but is unlikely to make his big-league debut this season, as he spent all of last season at High-A Greensboro.

  • Pirates' Quinn Priester: Makes Grapefruit League debut

    Priester allowed one run on one hit and a walk in two-thirds of an inning against the Orioles on Monday, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports. The organization's top pitching prospect, who isn't expected to debut in the majors for two or three seasons, showcased a 97 mph fastball and a sharp-breaking curve. "We told him right away, 'You're not making the club,' so I think it's just a chance to see him," manager Derek Shelton said before the game. Priester is in camp to work with the coaching staff. Teams were permitted to bring up to 75 players to camp, and minor-league spring training will not start until after the big team goes north. The 2019 first-round draft pick has compiled a 3.19 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 41:14 K:BB in 36.2 professional innings.

  • Pirates' Quinn Priester: To join big-league camp

    Priester was invited to Pittsburgh's major-league camp Tuesday. Priester will get the chance to impress the Pirates' big-league coaching staff, though he's unlikely to be auditioning for an Opening Day roster spot. The 2019 18th overall pick recorded a 3.19 ERA in his professional debut that season, though that came in just 36.2 innings, none of which came in full-season ball.

  • Pirates' Quinn Priester: Gets spot in roster pool

    The Pirates added Priester to their 60-man roster pool Wednesday. He'll be bound for the Pirates' alternate training site in Altoona, allowing the organization to monitor his development more closely with no minor-league season taking place in 2020. A first-round pick in the 2019 first-year player draft, the 19-year-old Priester posted a 3.19 ERA and 41:14 K:BB over his 36.2 innings at the rookie-ball level last season.
