Pirates Call Up Two Future Stars Before 2014 Season The Pirates called up their two young studs from AAA ball. The first being RF Gregory Polanco, who was widely thought to be the best prospect in the country. The 6'4, 22 year old has tremendous fielding and baserunning skills. He's got the speed to play the perfect compliment to both Andrew McCutchen and Starlin Marte in the outfield. The second player brought up is also a 22 year old, stands 6'5, and is a hard throwing RP. Jameson Taillon was brought up immediately to replace Edison Volquez as the 4th man up in the Pirates rotation. The team expects a lot from both of these young players, and fans of the Pirates should get to know these two names very well.
