Nick Kingham: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Kingham (elbow) is poised to make his major league debut at some point in 2017 after missing most of the last two seasons following Tommy John surgery, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports. "Finally got a normal offseason," said Kingham. "Finished up healthy toward the end of the year, last month and a half or so. Excited to come into spring training full-go and see what happens."

2017

2016

Kingham missed most of 2015 after undergoing Tommy John Surgery in late May. As a result, he probably wonít be back on the mound until middle of the 2016 and itís unlikely he helps fantasy owners. When healthy, the 6-foot-5 righty commands three pitches ó including a fastball, curveball and changeup ó though none of his offerings are dominant. The 24-year-old posted a 3.34 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 119:52 K:BB ratio in 159 innings split between Double-A and Triple-A in 2014. Kingham missed a golden opportunity to make his debut in Pittsburgh last season, and he may now have to wait until 2017 before getting another chance.

2015

Kingham might not have the ceiling of Tyler Glasnow or Jameson Taillon, but he put himself on the map with an impressive 2014. In fact, there was a groundswell of support among the Pirates' fan base to promote Kingham to the majors after he posted a 2.30 ERA in his first 16 starts (97.2 innings) split between Double-A and Triple-A. He cooled off after that, finishing with a combined 3.34 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 119:52 K:BB ratio in 159 innings. Kingham is more of a control pitcher with decent stuff but he probably won't strike out too many batters (6.7 K/9). At the least, the 23-year-old looks like a possible No. 3 starter with a big frame (6-foot-5, 220 pounds) who can eat innings. He could make his major league debut in 2015 with a good start and a few injuries to Pittsburgh's rotation.

2014

Kingham ranks in the top five among Pittsburgh's starting pitching prospects after a breakout season split between High-A and Double-A in 2013. He compiled a 3.09 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 70 innings for Bradenton, earning a promotion to Altoona, where he posted a 2.70 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 73.1 frames. He utilizes a three-pitch arsenal, including a fastball in the low-to-mid 90s, curve and changeup. Kingham featured a combined 144:44 K:BB ratio and will likely start 2014 in Double-A. If he can improve upon the 69:30 BB:K ratio he registered for Altoona, then a move to Triple-A could follow later in the summer.
