ALTOONA, Pa. - Pirates Prospects has learned that Casey Sadler is being promoted back to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Sadler was sent to Altoona in early July because of a numbers game in Indianapolis. The Pirates wanted to be sure to get him the innings that he needed, and he was more capable of accomplishing that while with the Curve. He started building up his pitch count later that month and made his first start in over two years on July 27th.
