According to a source, the following five players will join the Pirates in Milwaukee on Saturday when the rosters expand for September 1st. Pitchers Chris Leroux, Jeff Locke and Justin Wilson, catcher Eric Fryer and infielder Brock Holt.

Both Leroux and Holt are not currently on the club’s 40-man roster, but the roster was at 39 and a second spot opened on Friday when the Pirates outrighted Jeff Clement to High-A Bradenton.

For Holt it would be his first trip to the Majors. He started the season at Double-A, but has put up an impressive .432/.476/.537 line over 24 games at Triple-A.

  1. Maybe Holt will see some time at second; push Harrison back into the shortstop rotisserie to ensure that nobody gains any traction. Is Mercer still on the team?
