#Pirates recall INF Chase d'Arnaud from Triple-A Indy. He'llbe in uniform for tonight's game.— Rob Biertempfel (@BiertempfelTrib) August 28, 2012
The Pirates have promoted Chase d'Arnaud, which sounds like a sign that Neil Walker still isn't ready. d'Arnaud hit well in the second half after a poor first half, but this isn't a promotion based on merit. Yamaico Navarro still isn't eligible to be promoted, because it's been less than 10 days since the Bucs sent him down, so d'Arnaud is next in line. The fact that he's on the 40-man roster already also helps. We'll see what the Pirates end up doing when Erik Bedard's roster spot comes up.
