The Pirates have announced a four-year extension on their developmental contract with the Indianapolis Indians through the 2020 season.
The Indianapolis Indians have been the AAA affiliate of the Pirates since 2005. Both clubs seem to have a good working relationship with one another. Indianapolis isn’t that far from Pittsburgh, especially by plane ride. Their stadium, Victory Field, is considered one of the best ballparks in AAA. Andrew McCutchen (2009), Starling Marte (2012) and Gregory Polanco (2014) have all been former Pirates top prospects while with the Indians. Current Pirates #1 prospect Tyler Glasnow will begin 2016 with Indianapolis.
