Your nominee for biggest jerk prospect of the year

Is the Rays’ Josh Sale. Who, as Deadspin reports, bragged on his Facebook page about throwing loose change at a stripper and then, using crappy grammar, called her a “hoe.”

Too bad he’s hurt and hasn’t played a game this year. He’d fit nicely on a team that features Josh Leuke and Yunel Escobar.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
