Altoona Curve manager P.J. Forbes won’t return to the Pittsburgh Pirates’ organization next year, according to Cory Giger of the Altoona Mirror. Forbes spent the last two years managing the Altoona Curve, and one year before that managing the Bradenton Marauders. According to Giger, the Pirates weren’t bringing Forbes back to manage in Altoona, but did offer him another position in the organization. The position is unknown, although Forbes did note that it was going backwards and that it would have been at another level.

Earlier today we heard that West Virginia manager Rick Sofield has been promoted to be the major league first base coach. That, plus this news on Forbes, leaves two managing jobs open in the Pirates’ minor league system.
