Pirates Recall Christopher Bostick

The Pittsburgh Pirates recalled outfielder Christopher Bostick for Tuesday’s game. With the trades made today sending Tyler Glasnow and Austin Meadows to Tampa, no other move needs to be made to open a roster spot. Both Chris Archer and Keone Kela have time to report to the team and once they do, then they will be added to the active roster.

Bostick is hitting .295/.351/.436 in 78 games with Indianapolis this season. He’s among the league leaders with 24 doubles. Bostick has played second base, third base and shortstop in the past, but he’s been in the outfield this season. He’s mostly played center field, but he has made starts at both corner spots as well. Bostick had a .296 average and a .777 OPS in 20 games with the Pirates last year.

He will likely remain with the team until Corey Dickerson or Josh Bell returns from the disabled list.

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.
