NEWS AND RUMORS

Follow along throughout the day as we provide updates and commentary on the daily Pirates news, along with links to stories around Pittsburgh Baseball Network.

UPDATE: As part of the player moves today, Diego Castillo moved up to Triple-A. More to come.

UPDATE: Michael Chavis has been placed on the 10-day injured list with a right elbow strain. To take his place on the active roster, Hoy Park has been activated for this game. Phillip Evans and Shelby Miller are both said to be joining the Pirates, but they might be the two additions tomorrow when the roster expands. We will see.

My thought appears to be correct:
