The Pittsburgh Pirates have made a handful of moves in the minors today. The big move is that shortstop Adam Frazier has been activated from the disabled list and added to the Altoona roster. He has missed the beginning of the season with a hand injury that occurred during Spring Training. Frazier spent all of last season in Bradenton and will likely take over full-time at shortstop for the Curve.
Earlier in the day we announced the promotion of Steve Lombardozzi to the Pirates, replacing Andrew Lambo, who was placed on the disabled list. Andy Vasquez makes the move from Altoona to Indianapolis to take the roster spot of Lombardozzi.
Yesterday, Indianapolis added Josh Wall to the active roster and sent Brad Lincoln to the West Virginia Black Bears(Morgantown). It was just a paper move for Lincoln, who never left. After Charlie Leesman was forced into long relief last night, throwing 97 pitches, he switched spots with Lincoln on the active roster. Leesman won’t be able to pitch for five days, at which point another move will likely be made. Wall made his season debut in last night’s game.
