Nick Kingham has been promoted to the Altoona Curve, Pirates Prospects has learned. The move is not yet official, and no corresponding moves have been announced. Kingham will leave for Altoona tomorrow. In 67 innings this year with Bradenton, Kingham posted a 3.09 ERA and a 71:14 K/BB ratio. That doesn’t include tonight’s start, which was suspended after three innings and saw him give up one run on two hits, with no walks and four strikeouts.

The timing of the move gives Kingham plenty of time to finish the 2013 season in Double-A. If he performs as well there as he did in Bradenton, he could start the 2014 season in Triple-A and end up in the majors by mid-season.

  • The bigger question: who moves up from Altoona to Indy to open up this spot and replace Cole?

  • Definitely think it is Castro. No need to have Glasnow in High A. He is still just getting his work in and refining his control and building up strength. Plenty of time for him to jump on the fast track next year or even late this season.

    well earned promotion for Kingham……..and I agree with those who feel Castro should be the WV starter promoted to Bradenton – he has earned it and is older than Glasnow – and probably more ready. Glasnow needs to improve his control before such a promotion.

  • Tyler to Bradenton and Heredia to WV?

  • Who takes his spot in Bradenton? Any chance its Tall Tyler ‘lthe starting days matchup I know thay is not as big a deal in the minors
