Casey Sadler Takes Roster Spot of Bryan Morris

Casey Sadler Takes Roster Spot of Bryan Morris

Following the trade of Bryan Morris to the Miami Marlins, the Pittsburgh Pirates have promoted Casey Sadler to take his place on the major league roster. Sadler was pulled from his last start while he was in the bullpen warming up on Friday, so there may have been an indication at that time that a deal was going to be made.

Sadler pitched twice for the Pirates earlier this month out of the bullpen. He threw a total of four scoreless innings. In the minors with Indianapolis, he had a 2.60 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 50.2 innings over eight starts. Sadler is an extreme ground ball pitcher, posting a 1.57 GO/AO ratio, which is in line with his career average over five seasons.

John was born in Kearny, NJ, hometown of the 2B for the Pirates 1909 World Championship team, Dots Miller. In fact they have some of the same relatives in common, so it was only natural for him to become a lifelong Pirates fan. Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game. He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site. John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.
