Ian Snell Sent Down to AAA

The Pirates announced today that Ian Snell will be headed to Indianapolis.  Virgil Vasquez will be headed to Pittsburgh.   He will pitch for Charlie Morton tomorrow if he can’t go, or in Snell’s spot on Sunday. 

Talk about a reverse in direction.  Just yesterday, NH said Snell would start Sunday.  I am insanely curious as to the change in course? 

It was obvious that Snell was struggling, no question, but why comment on him starting Sunday if there was EVEN A SHIMMER of doubt.  I had heard he was going to work with Kerrigan on the side yesterday, perhaps that didn’t go quite as well as planned?

Rocco Demaro sent a Twit….  Snell said he asked to be demoted.
