Pirates to promote Allie, Castro, Joely Rodriguez

New, comments

Pirates Prospects is reporting that 1B Stetson Allie and LHPs Orlando Castro and Joely Rodriguez will be promoted to Bradenton this week

The report states Rodriguez is moving up today, although he pitched on Sunday and so won't be available to pitch until Friday.

Allie so far has been one of the top power hitters in the minors, accumulating a 324/414/607 line, with 17 HRs and 61 RBIs. Castro has an ERA of 1.93, a WHIP of 0.95, and a K/BB ratio of 10.5. Rodriguez is more of a surprise, as his performance has been uneven, including a rough start yesterday. He currently has a 2.72 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, and 2.9 K/BB.
