2016

Although Newman didnít meet with immediate success in the NYPL ó he slashed .226/.281/.340 in 173 PA ó an injury to fellow shortstop prospect, Cole Tucker, prompted the Pirates to promote Newman to Low-A West Virginia. Surprisingly, the 2015 first-round pick produced better offense for the Power than he did for the Black Bears. He batted .306 with a .743 OPS in 110 PA. Prior to the draft, Newman was thought to be further advanced defensively than at the plate. Heíll look to build upon a good foundation in 2016.
