Matt Hague Sent Down as Pirates Clear Spot for Charlie Morton


The Pittsburgh Pirates needed to make a roster move to get Charlie Morton back.  The move surprised me a bit.  But then we heard the reasoning and it makes sense.

The Pirates sent Matt Hague to AAA Indianapolis.  After the Diamondbacks throw lefty Joe Saunders on Monday,  the Pirates will be looking at a stretch of right handers.  Neal Huntington explained of the roster move.

“What was going to give Clint the versatility to win? The defensive flexibility of Harrison and Navarro will allow Clint to make moves he needs to during the games.”

Hurdle mentioned that the 25th man roster spot could vary throughout the season.

Makes sense.
