Morning Report: Chris Bostick and Max Moroff Have Both Hit Well Since Being Sent Down
John Dreker

Max Moroff and Chris Bostick were each sent down from Pittsburgh to Indianapolis at the same time last week. They switched spots with Adam Frazier and David Freese, so no one is complaining about the trade-off there, but people are calling for both players to rejoin the Pirates due to their incredible hitting since being sent down. That was on top of the strong hitting from both players before they were called up.

Both players are among the league leaders in numerous categories in the International League. Bostick is second in average, fifth in on base and fourth in slugging with his .371/.405/.565 slash line in 30 games. Moroff is second in slugging and 11th in on base with his .274/.388/.624 slash line in 30 games. He leads the league with 12 homers and he's second with 22 walks.
