Jaff Decker to Be Promoted to Pittsburgh

Published:

Jaff Decker will be promoted to Pittsburgh tomorrow, according to his agent, Tom O’Connell.

Decker was pulled from tonight’s game in Indianapolis early. Starling Marte also left tonight’s game early with a tight lower back. Andrew McCutchen missed tonight’s game with a sore left foot. McCutchen could play tomorrow, and Marte could as well, but the Pirates will need an extra outfielder to avoid tonight’s situation where Gaby Sanchez was playing right field.

Brent Morel will most likely be the guy who goes down. Decker has struggled this season, but has been hot lately. The better choice would probably be Chris Dickerson, but this is a short-term recall, and Dickerson would have to be designated for assignment in about a week if he was called up. Then of course there’s Gregory Polanco, who would be up if the Pirates weren’t holding him back for Super 2 purposes.
