The Pittsburgh Pirates are one of only a handful of teams that have both a farm system filled with potential stars and a major league roster stacked with winners.  

According to an article written by Jason Parks of Baseball Prospectus, the Pirates have the third-strongest farm system in all of baseball, behind only the Minnesota Twins and the Chicago Cubs.  

Due to great pitching and timely hitting, Pittsburgh has been extremely hot as of late, winning nine of its last 12 games. 

The Pirates have had a variety of homegrown talent come up and pitch well over the last few years, and that is why Pittsburgh's bullpen is now widely regarded as one of the best in the league.  

According to a report issued by Baseball America prior to the start of the 2014 regular season, four players in the organization's top 10 prospects are pitchers.  

Now, let's take a look at each pitching prospects' strengths and weaknesses.
