Skenes, the No. 1 pick in the 2023 MLB Draft, spent less than a year in the minors, most recently with Triple-A Indianapolis.

With an ERA of .99 over his first seven starts with the team, the former LSU star has given up only 17 hits over 27.1 innings, striking out 45 batters.

"He’s been checking just about every box since the season started and responding incredibly well," Pirates GM Ben Cherington told Audacy’s 93.7 "The Fan" on Sunday, according to Fox Sports.

Skenes inked a $9.2 signing bonus last year with the Pirates after winning a championship with LSU, where he finished with a 13-2 record during the College World Series.

Last August, Skenes confirmed that he was dating Dunne after months of rumors, and reflected on what it was like to be with a social media superstar.

"It can be a pain in the butt sometimes, to be honest, in terms of actually going somewhere," he said in an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "If one of us went out in Baton Rouge [La.] by ourselves, there's probably gonna be someone there asking for something — picture, autograph, whatever."

But the rising star added that Dunne understands the rigors of being an athlete and a celebrity.

"It's nice to be able to have that conversation. She does get it," he said. "I do wish she could come to a baseball game and just enjoy it. It does irk me. I don't have any control over it. She really doesn't either. I'm sure it'll get better as I go up levels, but that's something I want for her."

Skenes will make his debut on the mound on Saturday, May 11 at PNC Park when the Pirates play the Chicago Cubs.
