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.

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.
