Player Outlook
Despite being selected in the third round of the 2019 draft, Jared Triolo never carried much prospect pedigree or hype. That's because Triolo's carrying tool is his defense, as he's played every position along the infield since joining the organization. That set him up well to take advantage of openings along the team's infield in a utility role, and he did just that to close 2023 by playing 35 games at second base, 13 at second base, seven at first base and one at DH in his first sample in the majors. That versatility could also mean he maintains a role in 2024, but the question then becomes whether that will make him fantasy relevant. Across any significant sample in the minors, Triolo never posted an ISO above .176 and that mark was just .099 in 209 plate appearances with Pittsburgh. That lack of power will put a lot of pressure on his hit and speed tools. Triolo regularly hit above .280 in the minors, and it appears that success carried over after his promotion. However, his strikeout rate spiked to 30.1 percent and he relied on a .440 BABIP to hit .298 with the Pirates. That's a concerning sign for his batting average potential, but if he can secure an everyday role and get on base (11.5 BB% in majors), Triolo should be a source of stolen bases. He had consistent success in that regard in the minors and then stole six of seven bags successfully upon reaching the majors. That was backed by a 77th percentile sprint speed, leaving stolen bases as his primary path to fantasy relevance.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Productive in Sunday's win

    Triolo went 2-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored Sunday against the Rockies. Triolo drew his fourth straight start, though two of those came with Oneil Cruz briefly sidelined. He went only 3-for-14 with seven strikeouts in that span, and he's likely to return to a reserve role so long as Cruz, Nick Gonzales and Ke'Bryan Hayes remain healthy.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Getting fourth straight start

    Triolo will start at third base and bat sixth in Sunday's game against the Rockies. Triolo will pick up his fourth straight start, but two came while shortstop Oneil Cruz was sitting out due to a sore ankle. Cruz is back in the lineup Sunday, but Triolo will get the nod at third base in place of a resting Ke'Bryan Hayes. Expect Triolo to return to a utility role when the Pirates open their series against the Reds on Monday.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Moving into reserve role

    Triolo is out of the lineup for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Tigers. Triolo had served as the Pirates' primary second baseman for most of the season before seeing most of his action at third base over the past three weeks while Ke'Bryan Hayes was on the injured list. Nick Gonzales took over at second base while Hayes was out, and after handily outperforming Triolo at the plate during that stretch, Gonzales appears to have taken over Triolo's everyday role after Hayes was reinstated from the IL on Tuesday. Even though he had started in all but five of the Pirates' first 54 games of the season, Triolo hadn't delivered much fantasy value with a .203 average, three home runs, four stolen bases, 18 RBI and 12 runs. Now that he's likely moving into a part-time role, Triolo may struggle to offer much utility even in NL-only leagues.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Pops third homer

    Triolo went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run Friday against Atlanta. Triolo has struggled at the plate for much of the season, though Friday's long ball was his second in his last seven games. He's also hit .280 with four runs scored and six RBI in that span. So long as Ke'Bryan Hayes (back) is sidelined, Triolo should remain the primary starter at third base for Pittsburgh.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Out of lineup Thursday

    Triolo isn't in the Pirates' lineup Thursday versus the Cubs. Triolo will begin the day on the bench amid his recent struggles. After going 0-for-3 on Wednesday, he has just two hits in his last 39 plate appearances. The third baseman has been starting in the absence of Ke'Bryan Hayes, but Nick Gonzales will slide over from second to third Thursday. Alika Williams joins the lineup at second and will bat ninth.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Out of lineup Monday

    Triolo isn't included in the lineup for Monday's game against the Brewers. Triolo's streak of seven consecutive starts will come to an end Monday with Alika Williams getting the nod at the keystone. The time off could prove beneficial for Triolo, who has gone 2-for-19 at the dish over his last six games.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Swipes second bag

    Triolo went 1-for-5 with a run scored and a stolen base Sunday against the Phillies. Triolo has settled into a near-everyday role at second base while hitting primarily seventh or eighth in the lineup. He has at least one hit in 11 of his 14 starts, with the result being a .268 average across 62 plate appearances. The rest of Triolo's line is fairly empty, however, as he's tallied only two extra-base hits -- including one home run -- and two stolen bases.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Gets Saturday off

    Triolo isn't in the Pirates' lineup for Saturday's game against the Phillies. Triolo will get a day to rest after going 3-for-7 with an RBI and a run scored through the first two games of the series. Alika Williams will instead get the nod at the keystone, batting ninth.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Batting leadoff Tuesday

    Triolo will start at second base and bat leadoff Tuesday versus the Tigers, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports. Triolo hadn't previously batted higher than sixth this season, but he's perched atop the batting order in this one against righty Casey Mize while Oneil Cruz gets a breather. The 26-year-old is hitting .275/.356/.375 in his first 10 games this season.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: On base four times

    Triolo went 2-for-3 with two walks, a run scored and a stolen base Sunday against the Marlins. Triolo won the second base job out of spring training and has started all four of Pittsburgh's games to this point. He has two multi-hit efforts in that span while also drawing three walks. Triolo also notched his first stolen base of the campaign after swiping 16 total bags between Triple-A Indianapolis and the majors in 2023.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Wins second base job

    Triolo is expected to be Pittsburgh's regular second baseman after Liover Peguero was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Triolo was initially projected for a utility role this season, but he's maintained a .436 wOBA across 39 plate appearances this spring. His underlying 30.8 percent strikeout rate and .500 BABIP make it clear that Triolo won't enjoy the same success over a larger sample, but he did enough to beat out Peguero for the second base job to begin the regular season.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Projected for utility role

    Triolo is likely to get regular at-bats while playing multiple positions this season, Jake Crouse of MLB.com reports. Triolo appeared in 54 games for the Pirates in 2023 and hit .298 across 209 plate appearances. There's significant reason to doubt that performance carries forward, as he posted a .440 BABIP to go along with a 30.1 percent strikeout rate. However, he's an above-average defender at first base, second base and third base, giving him multiple paths to playing time even if he doesn't start regularly at a single position.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Making case for 2024 role

    Triolo went 2-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored Thursday against the Phillies. Triolo has settled into a regular utility role around the infield. Since Sept. 9, he's hit .375 (18-for-48) with two home runs, five RBI and 12 runs scored, and he's recorded seven multi-hit performances across 14 starts. The Pirates will have a number of younger infielders vying for playing time to begin 2024, and Triolo may have added his name to the mix with the way he's wrapping up the current campaign.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Knocks second homer

    Triolo went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, an additional RBI and two total runs scored in Wednesday's 13-7 win over the Cubs. Triolo has gone 6-for-23 (.261) over eight games since he was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Sept. 6. This was his first game with an RBI in that span. The infielder is slashing .271/.350/.340 with two homers, 18 RBI, 21 runs scored and four stolen bases through 163 plate appearances this season. He doesn't have an everyday role, but he can provide cover around the infield for the Pirates.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Headed for bench role

    Triolo is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game agains the Tigers, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Ke'Bryan Hayes (back) returned from the 10-day injured list Tuesday and will rejoin the starting lineup Wednesday, so Triolo's run as the Pirates' everyday third baseman appears to be over. While starting all but one of the Pirates' last 28 games, Triolo hit a respectable .268 but otherwise offered little in the way of fantasy production (zero home runs, zero stolen bases, 13 runs and nine RBI).

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Could lose out on playing time

    Triolo is not in Thursday's lineup against the Dodgers. Triolo had started eight consecutive games since being promoted from Triple-A Indianapolis. He's hit fairly well in the small sample by maintaining a .286 batting average, though he's also struck out 11 times in 32 plate appearances. He'll lose his spot at third base due to the return of Ke'Bryan Hayes and may have to settle for splitting time in the middle infield with Nick Gonzales, Rodolfo Castro and Tucupita Marcano.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Another path to potential at-bats

    Triolo went 1-for-2 with an RBI and two walks Monday against the Dodgers. Triolo has enjoyed an everyday role at third base since being promoted to Pittsburgh on Wednesday. While he has only a limited sample since, he's maintained a 13 percent walk rate -- a mark in line with his minor-league track record -- and also has one extra-base hit. Ke'Bryan Hayes (back) appears to be nearing a return, but the absence of Ji Hwan Bae (ankle) could cause the Pirates to shuffle their infield. In that scenario, Nick Gonzales could shift primarily to second base and leave Triolo to split time with Tucupita Marcano at shortstop. It's also possible that Pittsburgh opts to demote Triolo to make room on the roster for Hayes' activation.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Promoted to majors

    Pittsburgh recalled Triolo from Triple-A Indianapolis on Wednesday. Ke'Bryan Hayes will be sidelined for at least the next seven days because of a lower-back issue, giving Triolo an opportunity to impress at third base. The 25-year-old was a second-round pick in the 2019 MLB Draft and had registered a .309/.412/.463 batting line with one home run and eight stolen bases through 41 games this season in the minors.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Healthy for spring training

    Triolo (knee) played four innings at first base and went 0-for-1 with a walk Saturday in the Pirates' 9-7 loss to the Blue Jays in the Grapefruit League opener. Triolo, who was added to the Pirates' 40-man roster over the offseason, missed the final few weeks of Double-A Altoona's 2022 campaign while recovering from a hyperextended left knee. The 25-year-old is seemingly healthy again and could get the chance to make his MLB debut at some point in 2023 for the rebuilding Pirates, but he's likely to head to Triple-A Indianapolis at least for the start of the season. Per Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic, Triolo has played third base for most of his minor-league career but is expected to get exposure to the other corner-infield spot as well as shortstop and the outfield this spring.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Joins 40-man roster

    Triolo (knee) was added to Pittsburgh's 40-man roster Tuesday. Triolo spent the final month of 2022 on the injured list at Double-A Altoona with a hyperextended knee, but he still had a productive campaign with a .285/.378/.424 slash line and 24 steals in 112 games. The 24-year-old should move up to Triple-A Indianapolis at some point in 2023.
