According to the Altoona Mirror, right-handed pitcher Casey Sadler has been promoted to Indianapolis. Sadler had a 3.31 ERA in 130.1 innings with Altoona this year, along with a 67:42 K/BB ratio. The sinkerball pitcher didn’t strike out a lot of batters, but put up a strong 1.74 GO/AO ratio. Indianapolis is about to be raided for their starters, with guys like Brandon Cumpton, Kris Johnson, and Stolmy Pimentel expected to be promoted to Pittsburgh on Sunday. Sadler should help Indianapolis in the rotation for their playoff run, which starts next week.

Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.

Congrats to Casey. I hope he makes it to the bigs….if not with us, with someone else!

Do you think the Pirates will go Gomez for 4-5 innings on Sunday or is it going to be some sort of Indy mix? I was orginally thinking Johnson but he appears to be starting today.
