The next time the Pittsburgh Pirates make a roster move, one of these players could be promoted from the minors

The Pittsburgh Pirates are likely going to have to make a roster decision as soon as this week. Drew Maggi likely isn’t going to stay around much longer (although, who knows, as this is still the same team who kept Josh VanMeter on the roster until the first week of September). They already optioned Canaan Smith-Njigba, placed Wil Crowe on the IL, and promoted relief prospect Cody Bolton, but they’ll more than likely make another move within the coming days.

Because of that, let’s speculate on who could be the next player to get called up later this week. It won’t likely be a top prospect, given that they’d essentially take CSN’s role as the once-a-week starter. So keep that in mind when we look at today’s players.
