The Pittsburgh Pirates have recalled outfielder Jaff Decker, and have optioned Brent Morel to Triple-A. The set of moves was expected, as we heard late last night that Decker was heading to Pittsburgh.
The Pirates needed an extra outfielder with the minor injuries to Starling Marte and Andrew McCutchen. McCutchen is in the lineup tonight, although Marte is out, being replaced by Jose Tabata in left field. Travis Snider is also back in the lineup, after missing the last two games due to his suspension.
