Pirates Promote Luis Munoz, Lose Bryan Bullington

The Pirates have promoted pitcher Luis Munoz and sent John Van Benschoten back to Indianapolis. Munoz had actually was demoted from Indianapolis to Altoona in June and hasn't pitched well at either level, so there's no particular reason to think things will get better in the big leagues. He's a starting pitcher, at least in the minors, but does anyone think he'll average more than three innings in the big leagues?

Also, in a surprise move, the Indians claimed Bryan Bullington. The Indians are a smart organization, but I'm baffled as to what they might see in him. The Pirates shouldn't miss him.
