Ke’Bryan Hayes has been promoted to Morgantown to play for the West Virginia Black Bears, the Pirates announced earlier today.
Hayes was the Pirates first round supplemental selection in this year’s draft. The son of former Pirate Charlie Hayes put up very good numbers in the Gulf Coast League, batting .333 along with an OPS of .809 in 44 games for the GCL Pirates. Although Hayes is playing his first season of pro ball out of high school, it wouldn’t surprise me if the Pirates have him playing full season ball next year for the West Virginia Power.
