According to the Indianapolis Indians official Twitter account, Jin-De Jhang has been promoted to Indianapolis from the Altoona Curve. 

Jhang signed with the Pirates as an amateur free agent out of Taiwan in 2011. The 23-year-old backstop had played in 31 games for Altoona this season, batting .290 along with a .705 OPS. Behind the plate, Jhang is throwing out baserunners at a 26% clip. He’ll likely serve as the backup catcher in Indianapolis to Jake Stallings.
