The Altoona Curve have made a few roster moves, adding one player to the disabled list and taking two players off the DL. Justin Howard has been added to the DL with a right ankle injury. Infielder Dan Gamache has been activated from the DL after missing the first three months of the season with a broken foot. Left-handed pitcher Nate Baker has also been activated, after missing time with a left teres major injury.
Gamache should see time at second and third base, while Baker will get work out of the bullpen.
Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.
