The Pittsburgh Pirates prospect Evan Chambers passed away in his sleep this past weekend as noted in a statement by Pirates GM Neal Huntington.

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.

 

Truly sad news in baseball and my prayers go out to the Chambers family, the Pirates organization and all of Evan’s friends through baseball and life.  May everyone find peace with this sudden loss and remember all the great memories they shared with him and his forever smiling face. RIP Evan Chambers – Gone Too Soon.
