The Altoona Curve announced that left-handed pitcher Brandon Waddell has been placed on the 7-day disabled list with a left forearm strain. Waddell pitched four innings in his season debut on April 8th, then he was a late scratch from his next scheduled start five days later. We were originally told that he was out with shoulder soreness, but he was expected to make his next start, which would have been tomorrow night. The disabled list move has been made retroactive to April 14th, so he is available to come off the DL on April 21st. We will try to get an update on his condition later tonight. Waddell was rated as the 26th best prospect in our 2017 Prospect Guide.

No other roster move has been announced at this time yet. We will update this article when a corresponding move is made....

He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site. John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.
