Besides Jaff Decker getting activated and assigned to Indianapolis today, there have been other moves around the minors in the last two days. To make room on the Indianapolis roster, the Pirates have assigned pitcher Adam Miller to the West Virginia Black Bears roster.
Yesterday, Brad Lincoln was assigned to Indianapolis and made his season debut, throwing a scoreless inning in relief. Utility player Andy Vasquez was moved to Altoona to make room for Lincoln.
Junior Sosa has been moved from Altoona to Bradenton and he replaced outfielder Barrett Barnes on the roster. Barnes left Wednesday night’s game early and didn’t play the last two days. He wasn’t put on the disabled list, he was assigned to Extended Spring Training, but there could be an injury. The move could be due to roster spaces because Bradenton already has five players on the disabled list. Barnes had four hits in his last game and is hitting .450, so the timing would be bad for another injury. We are working to confirm the details.
