Reese McGuire Returns to West Virginia Roster

The West Virginia Power have activated catcher Reese McGuire off the disabled list today. To make room on the roster, catcher Francisco Diaz was transferred to the Jamestown roster. McGuire has been out for the last week with a groin contusion, but it only caused him to miss the minimum seven days for a disabled list stay.

McGuire last played on April 25th and he spent his last two games before going on the DL, in the designated hitter spot. The 2014 1st round draft pick  is hitting .222/.259/.278 through 14 games.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball.

When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.

Spectacular…..now what about Meadows? I swear, it wouldn’t have taken as long if he torn his hamstring….hey, wait a sec. My assumption is there is simply no point in rushing him back in the least. However, I’m becoming impatient.
