The Pirates minor league double A- affiliate the Altoona Curve currently sit at 37-48 and 14.0 games back of division leading Harrisburg. I wanted to talk a little bit about the most deserving call-ups...
1.) Starling Marte - He is considered a key piece of the Pirates future and right now he is backing that up with his stats. He is leading the Curve in BA and Slugging %. This is big because the Pirates are in big need of a guy who can can hit with power and has pop in his bat. I think he would excell in Indiannapolis.
2.) Bryan Morris - Since being put into the bullpen, Morris has exceeded all expectations. In 26.0 innings of relief Bryan has yielded only 12 earned runs which isn't great but he has only allowed 1 homerun and a .260 average. He has also had 21 strikeouts and only 8 walks. I think he would fare well in triple A.
