The Pirates signed Chambers in the 3rd round of the 2009 June Amateur draft from Hillsborough Community College (Tampa, FL.). He played in 5 seasons within the Pirates farm system and batted .227/.361/.351, 214 runs, 68 Doubles, 29 HR, 158 RBI, 73 SB, 270 BB, in 395 games, but he missed most of 2013 with a broken foot.
Chambers was remembered around baseball, as well from some of the Mets minor leaguer’s that knew him, as a guy that always had a smile on his face.
It is with a heavy heart that we extend our sympathies and prayers to the family and friends of Pirates minor leaguer Evan Chambers.
