The Pittsburgh Pirates are currently in fourth place in the National League Central and are without their primary catcher, Russell Martin. Martin was placed on the 15-day disabled list just yesterday, so his absence isn’t going unnoticed. It’ll be a long 15 days (or however long he’s going to be out), but Pirates fans are hoping their team doesn’t fall too far behind in the standings. Now the Pirates made a couple more roster moves today regarding their bullpen. They’ve optioned right-hander Jared Hughes to Triple-A Indianapolis, while recalling right-hander Casey Sadler from Indianapolis at the same time. Hughes worked through two and one-third scoreless innings out of the bullpen yesterday with the big league club. Pittsburgh is looking to keep fresh arms in the bullpen, so it makes sense that they decided to roll with a guy like Casey Sadler. Sadler has posted a beautiful 1.67 ERA over his first four starts.
