The Pittsburgh Pirates made numerous minor league moves on Monday afternoon involving three of their affiliates.

We mentioned that Nick Kingham left for Indianapolis after his season debut in Bradenton last week. He was officially assigned to the Indianapolis roster today. Kingham threw five shutout innings in his debut, allowing one hit and no walks.

Pedro Vasquez was added back to the Bradenton roster to make a start tonight. He was assigned to Extended Spring Training after his last start. Indianapolis will need to make a roster move to open a spot for Kingham.

Casey Sadler has been assigned to Bradenton and will pitch in a regular season game for the first time since 2015. To make room on the roster, Sam Street has been assigned to Extended Spring Training.

Catcher Arden Pabst will begin to serve his four-game suspension for his part in a brawl last week. The West Virginia Power added catcher Chris Harvey back to the roster today. He had the weekend off to attend graduation at Vanderbilt. The Power also got third baseman Hunter Owen back after he finished serving his three-game suspension.

Pitcher James Marvel has been placed on the 7-day disabled list, retroactive to May 12th. No word on his injury, but we will try to get an update.

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.
