As many of you know, I'm a big fan of Steve Pearce. He's been overlooked by a lot of people, but I don't think that will last for long. On Thursday Pearce launched his 3rd homer of the spring, giving him the top spot in the land along with Troy Tulowitzki. This early in the season, that doesn't really mean all that much, but there has been a small spike in trade rumors surrounding Xavier Nady, which leads me to believe that the Pirates really like what they see in Pearce and a move might come sooner than expected.
Through 8 games, here's Pearce's Spring Training stats:
AB -- 18
HR -- 3
RBI -- 6
