Alex McRae has been promoted from the Bradenton Marauders to the Altoona Curve, this according to Sean McCool of Pirates Prospects.
The Pirates selected McRae in the tenth round of the 2014 MLB Draft out of Jacksonville University. The 23-year-old righty was putting up very good numbers this season for Bradenton, posting a 2.69 ERA with a WHIP of 1.18 in 12 starts. McRae is definitely a pitch to contact type pitcher, as evidence of his 4.7 K/9. He will make his debut for Altoona tonight.
