They'll probably DFA John Bowker. Paul looks a lot like Bowker to me, only not as good, so I don't see the point. UPDATE by Charlie: Jenifer Langosch says that the Pirates have moved Scott Olsen to the 60-day DL to make room for Paul on the 40-man roster. That means that, first, we won't be seeing Olsen for a while. Second, it now looks more likely that the Bucs will clear a spot on the 25-man for Paul by optioning Steve Pearce to Indianapolis. Bowker is out of options, so if he were the one to be dropped, the Pirates could do so without putting Olsen on the 60-day DL. Paul does have a couple of days to report to the Pirates, however, so maybe the Pirates are just trying to delay making a 25-man move until he does.
