The West Virginia Power activated left-handed pitcher Cam Vieaux from the disabled list today and placed shortstop Stephen Alemais on the DL. Vieaux last pitched on May 7th when he allowed one run over five innings. He was placed on the disabled list a few days later due to tightness in his pitching arm. Vieaux has a 1.35 ERA and hasn't allowed more than one earned run in a start this season.
Alemais was injured in the ninth inning of last night's game. He received a throw at second base and tagged the runner on the knee as he was sliding in. Alemais immediately shook off his glove, as he was in a lot of pain and appeared to grab his wrist. The trainer quickly walked him off of the field with a towel wrapped around his left hand/wrist. If we can get a further update, we will post it.

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.
