Outfielder Willy Garcia has been promoted to AAA Indianapolis, this according to Cory Giger of the Altoona Mirror.

Garcia has been one of the better outfield prospects for the Pirates over the past few seasons. Entering this year, MLB.com rated him as the Pirates 14th best overall prospect in the system. Most baseball publications believe that Garcia has the best raw power, as well as the strongest throwing arm in the organization. In 53 games played for AA Altoona this season, Garcia is hitting .314 along with a .794 OPS.
