Minor Moves: Sadler Assigned to Bradenton, Kingham to Indianapolis, Marvel to DL

Published:

The Pittsburgh Pirates made numerous minor league moves on Monday afternoon involving three of their affiliates.

We mentioned that Nick Kingham left for Indianapolis after his season debut in Bradenton last week. He was officially assigned to the Indianapolis roster today. Kingham threw five shutout innings in his debut, allowing one hit and no walks.

Pedro Vasquez was added back to the Bradenton roster to make a start tonight. He was assigned to Extended Spring Training after his last start. Indianapolis will need to make a roster move to open a spot for Kingham.

Casey Sadler has been assigned to Bradenton and will pitch in a regular season game for the first time since 2015. To make room on the roster, Sam Street has been assigned to Extended Spring Training.

Catcher Arden Pabst will begin to serve his four-game suspension for his part in a brawl last week. The West Virginia Power added catcher Chris Harvey back to the roster today. He had the weekend off to attend graduation at Vanderbilt. The Power also got third baseman Hunter Owen back after he finished serving his three-game suspension.

Pitcher James Marvel has been placed on the 7-day disabled list, retroactive to May 12th. No word on his injury, but we will try to get an update.

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.
