Pirates Recall Jacob Stallings; Option Jordan Luplow


The Pittsburgh Pirates have added catcher Jacob Stallings to the active roster ahead of Sunday’s game. To make space on the 25-man roster, outfielder Jordan Luplow has been optioned to Indianapolis.

This move was made necessary by Francisco Cervelli leaving last night’s game early after taking a foul ball off the mask. He was just removed as a precautionary measure, but the Pirates are playing it safe today. They have off tomorrow, so it’s possible this is just one day for Stallings back with the big team and someone could join the team Tuesday in Minnesota. If Cervelli is unable to play by Tuesday, then they will be able to put him on the DL retroactive to today to shorten the time missed.

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.
