Jeff Locke has been one of the best pitchers at Triple-A Indianapolis this season. The lefthander sits atop the International League in several categories and an argument can be made that Locke is the best pitcher in the IL.
A report last night from Kristy Robinson states that Locke is coming to Pittsburgh. Kevin Correia makes a spot start tonight for the Bucs.
Locke is scheduled to start today in Indy, after striking out ten against the Yankees AAA team in a 2-0 Indianapolis Indians win Friday. The Redstone Rocket was called up earlier for a three-day stint with Pittsburgh.
In his last ten starts, he has won five games and posted a 1.98 ERA while striking out 53 and walking 24 batters.
