The post-trade deadline roster is something else to keep an eye on.  First and foremost the Pittsburgh Pirates have already called up a lot of young players.  However, there are a few that were up and demoted for contractual reasons.  Both Roansy Contreras and Jack Suwinski were sent down to avoid Super-2 Status.  By August they should be clear from that and back up.

Also, there are a few players who should come back onto the roster.  Tucupitca Marcano was called up a couple of times and really impressed.  Unfortunately, he was demoted due to players coming back from the Injury List. Marcano deserved to be up and hopefully, will be back after the Trade Deadline.

Other players that could make their way back onto the Big League roster are Bligh Madris, Miguel Yajure, and Rodolfo Castro.  All three players have shown flashes at the Big League level but were not able to stay on the roster for various reasons. All three should be back for more extended looks once there is roster space.

There should be some promotions as well.  Michael Burrows and Cody Bolton both deserve a few starts. They have performed well at Triple-A and it is important to see what they can bring to this team for 2021.
