According to Tim Williams of Pirates Prospects, the Indianapolis Indians have promoted pitcher Chad Kuhl. With Vance Worley rejoining the Pirates, the Indians needed to add an arm to their rotation for the championship round of the International League playoffs.
Kuhl was the Pirates ninth round selection in the 2013 MLB Draft. The 23-year-old right-hander made 26 starts this season with the Altoona Curve, posting a 2.48 ERA with a 1.14 WHIP. Kuhl relies mostly on his sinker, and has put up a 58% groundball rate this year.
