Nick Kingham headed to Indianapolis

Pirates Prospects is reporting that the Pirates will promote one of their top pitching prospects, RHP Nick Kingham, to Indianapolis.  Kingham is expected to make his first AAA start on Friday.

UPDATE by Charlie: Kingham wasn't spectacular for Altoona, posting a 3.04 ERA but with 54 strikeouts and 25 walks in 71 innings. But he has about a full season's worth of experience at Double-A, which may have been a factor in the Pirates moving him up. Also, with lots of injuries in Pittsburgh, there are a lot fewer bodies in the Indianapolis rotation than there were a month or two ago.
