Tuesday is usually a busy day for minor league moves, as teams reset for the new week. We have some moves over the last two days, while we see if the Pittsburgh Pirates made any more moves ahead of today’s games. Check back later for any updates, which usually come in around 5-6 as teams start updating their sites before the games start.
First baseman Josiah Sightler was promoted to Bradenton from the FCL Pirates. He was injured to start the year, so his FCL assignment was more of rehab work for the 23-year-old, who was a 15th round pick last year. He hit .227/.370/.364 in six games. He did not get into games after signing last year.
The Marauders placed Brandan Bidios on the seven-day Injured List. That’s tough to see, as injuries have really limited him since signing. He has looked terrific this year in his few outings, getting up to 99 MPH this spring, which led to him being pushed to Bradenton. He has pitched just 12 innings over the 2021-23 seasons.
Tanner Tredaway was placed on the Development List. The 23-year-old tenth round pick from last year was hitting .164/.319/.164 in 18 games.
Outfielder Sergio Campana was activated from the Injured List and added to the FCL Pirates, where he played his first game today. He has been out since a Spring Training injury sidelined him.
The 21-year-old center fielder spent the 2022 season with Bradenton, where he hit .210/.332/.323 in 100 games.
Outfielder Luke Brown has been activated from the Development List for Greensboro. He has hit .152/.329/.273 in 25 games this year.
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.
