After a second-half slide, the Pittsburgh Pirates find themselves planning for 2020 and beyond. As the Pirates look to build for the future, it is a golden opportunity for young players to prove themselves. Although pitcher Steven Brault would not fall under that category since he made his debut in 2016, he has been a bright spot amid the Pirates struggles.
