Pirates to Recall Nyjer Morgan

New, comments

Nyjer Morgan is returning to the Bucs, the Post-Gazette reports. The article suggests that the reason is because Xavier Nady will be heading to the DL, and that seems likely, since Morgan has done nothing at Indianapolis to warrant a promotion; he has a .559 OPS there. Ryan Doumit is likely to return to the lineup soon, which is a good thing, since Jason Michaels isn't a great bet to replace Nady's bat, regardless of his decent hitting since joining the Bucs.

UPDATE: No, actually, it's Morgan up, Marino Salas down. Thanks to Thunder for catching that.
