Yesterday we heard that the Pittsburgh Pirates planned to send pitcher Phil Irwin back to Indianapolis. Today they made that move official, optioning him back to AAA.

They also announced that they will make a corresponding roster move tomorrow. The Pirates have off today, so they don’t have to make a decision on another move until Friday.

Late last night, we posted the possibilities of who they might recall.

  1. I guess Dickerson makes the most sense, but he sure isn’t going to make or break the Pirates. We know is history, he can be decent bat & glove off the bench. Maybe a little better than Felix Pie was last year.
    Dickerson is at least more talented than Pie.

    Why not throw all caution to the wind and bring up a guy like Mel Rojas Jr. at least until Lambo is off the dl. Sometimes you give a kid a break and he’ll reward you. It would light a fire in him to want to get back to the show once he is sent back down, and could do wonders for him down the road.
