Jason Martin is Out for the Season

The Pittsburgh Pirates announced that outfielder Jason Martin will not play again this season due to a dislocated left shoulder. The good news here is that he doesn’t need surgery and would have been ready in about four weeks if this happened earlier in the season, so there is no concern about it affecting his off-season. Martin was injured on a play at the plate last night. He was just recalled from Indianapolis yesterday and entered the game late as a pinch-hitter.

Adam Berry also passed along good news on Mitch Keller, as well as updates on Gregory Polanco and Chris Archer

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball.

When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.
