The Pirates are promoting first baseman Edwin Espinal from AA Altoona to AAA Indianapolis, this according to Sean McCool of Pirates Prospects. 

Espinal was signed by the Pirates out of the Dominican Republic in 2011. The 23-year-old entered 2017 in his second season with Altoona, and is having a breakout year, hitting a career high 15 home runs, while posting a .797 OPS. Indianapolis is short a position player, following the big league call up of outfielder Jordan Luplow.
