Aaron Pribanic to Pittsburgh…in a way

Aaron Pribanic has been one of, if not the best, Marauder pitcher (at least statistically) over the last six weeks or so.  Prib has a 1.39 ERA in his last nine starts and has allowed fewer hits than innings pitched – something that hurt him earlier in the year.  The Marauders are also 7-2 over those nine starts.

So with so much success, Pribanic has garnered some attention from Pittsburgh…at least the Post-Gazette.  Chuck Finder has a story here on Aaron and Jeff Locke.  He writres how the duo has risen near the top of the Pirates pitching crop.

Prib.jpgSome other notes on Aaron:

  • He was aquired from the Mariners last season in the Ian Snell/Jack Wilson trade
  • His grandfather is Jim Coates – he pitched in the bigs with several teams including the Yankees.  Coates won a World Series with New York in 1961 and was an all-star the year prior.
  • Prib was a third round pick by the Mariners in 2008 out of Nebraska
  • Prior to Nebraska Pribanic attended Hutchinson Community College with Marauders closer Noah Krol

Till next time…
