Pirates Recall Andrew Lambo

The Pittsburgh Pirates have recalled OF/1B Andrew Lambo and optioned RHP Gerrit Cole to Bristol. Lambo has a .328/.389/.563 in 61 games with Indianapolis. He has been on a hot streak recently, hitting six homers over his last eight games. He has played 21 games at first base this season, 33 games in the outfield.

Cole was sent down to Bristol so he will be eligible to be recalled on September 1st for his next start. If he was sent to another team, he wouldn’t eligible to be recalled until their season ended, which would push back his start.

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.

How does this demotion affect Cole’s paycheck?

Will he be making the MLB wage while at Bristol?

Cole will lose a few thousand bucks in the deal but Lambo will make just as much and I’m sure he could use the boost.

Pumped because I am at the game
Bummed because Lambo could have it into that DP just as easily as Tabby 😉

Does Cole have to show up in Bristol? Just curious what the rules say.
