Along with the promotion of Tony Sanchez to the majors, the Pittsburgh Pirates have also promoted catcher Ali Solis to Indianapolis. Solis is a strong defensive catcher who the Pirates claimed off waivers from San Diego over the off-season, then outrighted to Triple-A. He’s been out for most of the year with back problems.

The Pirates have also sent Jose Tabata to Indianapolis to start a rehab assignment. That’s a good sign to show that Tabata is close to returning. Position players have a maximum of 20 days they can spend on rehab assignment. No word yet on how many Tabata will need.

Maybe he’s working on some pitches I wouldn’t bash him till he’s back in the bigs


This just in from Indy….James MacDonald is still awful! I feel bad for the guy, because he had so much promise up until the All Star break last year – but, the wheels have just completely fallen off. Really strange in how he could do such a 180.

The MLB team just does not have the luxury to carry a pitcher for nostalgic reasons – they are in a pennant race. They may be forced to just release him. Isn’t his rehab time running out?


Anyone else going to see Altoona vs. Bowie tomorrow? Once I saw that Taillon was pitching, I logged on and bought two tickets – my wife and I are going. I’m looking forward to seeing Polanco and Dickerson as well.

Plus, its fireworks night!!! 🙂

Anyone else going??
