Jeff Locke had 25 strikeouts in 28.1 innings in five AAA starts to earn a big league promotion.

Pittsburgh Pirates Make September Call-ups Official

From the Pittsburgh Pirates media relations department:

Today the Pirates have recalled LHP Jeff Locke (#61), LHP Aaron Thompson (#60), LHP Daniel Moskos (#57) and INF Pedro Alvarez (#24) from Triple-A Indianapolis.

The club has also selected RHP Jared Hughes (#70) from Triple-A Indianapolis and recalled RHP Evan Meek (#47) from his rehab assignment and reinstated him from the 60-day DL.

To make room on the 40-man roster, the Pirates have transferred LHP Paul Maholm and LHP Kevin Correia from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL.

Get the Barbie backpacks ready to go.  Jeff Locke will be especially interesting for us to watch.  Can the left hander make an impression with his move to the bigs?  We think he can.

Evan Meek is back in the bullpen.  Jared Hughes….wow, what a season for him.   Damn….arms everywhere!

We’re excited about Pedro Alvarez getting the call back up and he is slated for the lineup in a rain soaked Pittsburgh tonight.
