Quinton Miller has been promoted to Altoona.
Quinton Miller has been promoted to Altoona.

The Pirates have made the following minor league pitching moves, most likely as a chain reaction to the Duke Welker promotion.

**Tim Alderson has been promoted from Altoona to Indianapolis. Alderson has been with Indianapolis once already this year, and gave up one run in 3.2 innings of work. In his time with Altoona he had a 1.32 ERA in 13.2 innings, with a 17:2 K/BB ratio.

**Quinton Miller has been promoted from Bradenton to Altoona. Miller had a 3.77 ERA and an 18:5 K/BB ratio in 14.1 innings working out of the Bradenton bullpen.

  • I DON’T have high hopes for Alderson.

    Miller may be salvageable.

    And agree with Lambo should go to Indy.

    Has Miller earned the promotion or is it a move out of necessity? I had hopes for the kid, but thus far he has been disappointing to say the least. Hopefully Alderson sticks at AAA. And Lambo should get to join him soon.
