Pirates Call Up OF Gorkys Hernandez from AAA
The Pirates have now sent Meek back to Indianapolis to make room for Hernandez.
Gorkys is hitting .266/.343/.355 in 124 AAA at bats this year.
Hernandez is a notable defender, so he won’t be used as the DH this series. If he’s in the lineup, the Pirates will want his glove in the outfield.
His first at bat this weekend will be his first in the major leagues.
Prior to the 2009 season, Hernandez was ranked the #62 prospect in the minors.
