#pirates option Meek to Indianapolis — Tom Singer (@Tom_Singer) May 1, 2012   No corresponding move has yet been made, but one would have to assume that it will be either Doug Slaten, Daniel Moskos, or Daniel McCutchen, and most likely in that order. Evan Meek has struggled so far this year with a 5.59 ERA over 9 2/3 innings. Slaten has a 0.69 ERA over 13 innings for Indianapolis with eight strikeouts and three walks. Moskos has a 3.68 ERA over 7 1/3 innings with six strikeouts and seven walks. McCutchen, who hasn’t been with the club over the past few days due to the birth of his child, has a 3.52 ERA in 15 1/3 innings with 12 strikeouts and four walks. My money is on Slaten.

Justin Wilson leads charge in combined no-hitter

Box The AAA-Indianapolis Indians sent three pitchers out today to no-hit the Durham Bulls, the AAA affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays. Justin Wilson, Jose Diaz, and Doug Slaten combined on the no-hitter. Justin Wilson, the Pirates’ 5th round pick in 2008, pitched 7 1/3 hitless innings allowing only two walks. The south paw also struck out nine batters. Wilson threw 105 pitches, 72...

Today in 'Crazy Pedro Alvarez Stats'

How much power do you need to offset a bad on-base percentage and still be a good hitter in 2012? You don't need to look any further than Pedro Alvarez's FanGraphs page to find out! Pedro's .349 ISO is higher than the batting averages of all but five qualified players in the National League. Jose Bautista lead all of baseball with a .306 ISO last year and after Curtis...

Pirates Recall Jared Hughes

The Pittsburgh Pirates have recalled RHP Jared Hughes to take Evan Meek‘s spot on the roster.  Meek was optioned to AAA after last night’s game against the Braves. This is a bit of a head-scrather to me.  Hughes had a pretty good ERA when he went down (1.86), but otherwise he did nothing to impress [...]

Pirates 9, Braves 3

Pedro Alvarez and Yamaico Navarro each hit two-run homers, and the Pittsburgh Pirates enjoyed a long-awaited offensive breakthrough as they beat the Atlanta Braves 9-3 on Monday night. The Pirates, last in the major leagues with 58 runs in 22 games, almost doubled their previous season high of five runs. Neil Walker had three hits and drove in a run. It took the Pirates 22 games...

Braves fall to Pirates' offensive outburst

ATLANTA (AP) -- Pedro Alvarez and Yamaico Navarro each hit two-run homers, and the Pittsburgh Pirates enjoyed a long-awaited offensive breakthrough as they beat the Atlanta Braves 9-3 on Monday night. The Pirates, last in the major leagues with 58 runs in 22 games, almost doubled their previous season high of five runs. Neil Walker had three hits and drove in a run. It took the...

Pedro plays against a lefty

The Pirates look for a split against the Braves tonight in the fourth-game of the weirdly-scheduled four-game set with James McDonald and Mike Minor on the mound. Minor is a, awfully tough lefty, but he doesn't have much of a platoon split and since Pedro Alvarez has been the Pirates' best hitter for the last week or so, Clint Hurdle will leave him in the lineup to face Minor...

Maybe someday we'll know the truth behind what happened in the Miguel Sano story, but that day ...

Baseball Prospectus posted its review of Pelotero yesterday, which is well worth checking out if you're a Pirate fan. The documentary delves pretty deeply into the Miguel Sano saga, depicting Rene Gayo as the manipulative villain of the falling out between Sano and the Pirates. As Ken Funck notes, this is very clearly only one side of the story and despite there being quite...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. St. Louis Cardinals – Game 24

That was not enjoyable.  The good news is that the Pirates still kept the bats going.  The bad news is the pitching fell apart.  Charlie Morton.  Not good.  Jared Hughes.  Not good.  Tony Watson.  Not good.  Brad Lincoln.  Good. You aren’t going to win too many games in which you give up nine runs.  You [...]
