Musgrove Moves Rehab to Altoona; Braeden Ogle to Disabled List

The Altoona Curve announced that Joe Musgrove will start their game on Sunday. Tim Williams talked to Musgrove after his rehab start in Bradenton earlier this week. He allowed two runs on five hits in three innings during that outing. Musgrove noted that he will be going four innings in his first start for Altoona, and he expects to make three starts there before heading to Indianapolis. That will depend on how he feels after starts, but for now that’s the plan.

The West Virginia Power placed left-handed pitcher Braeden Ogle on the disabled list this afternoon and activated right-handed pitcher Gavin Wallace, who will start today’s game. I talked to Ogle this afternoon and he mentioned that he had some shoulder inflammation after his last start on April 27th. He said that he feels much better now, but the Pirates are being cautious and having him rest a few days. His DL trip was backdated to May 3rd, making him eligible to come back in five days, though it could be a little longer than that before he returns.

Wallace left his start the day before Ogle left his game early. While we never got a chance for an update, it’s only been nine days since that last game, so it was obviously a minor issue.

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.
