A few moves this afternoon in the minor league system:
-Andrew Lambo has been demoted from Indianapolis to Altoona, in order to make room for Josh Rodriguez. Lambo had been really struggling, with a .184/.257/.292 line in 185 at-bats at the AAA level. He was just 4-for-40 in the month of June. At 22 years old, it’s not a huge blow to Lambo’s career, although this definitely drops his stock.
-The Pirates have assigned three draft picks to State College: 21st round pick Alex Fuselier, 22nd round pick Mike Jefferson, and 33rd round pick Chris Lashmet. Michaelangel Trinidad has been released to make room on the State College roster.Pirates Prospects is FREE today in honor of the Wild Card game.
