- The Bucs made a couple of shuffles to the deck today: IF Pedro Florimon was called up from Indy, and can play short while allowing JHK to return to the hot corner if his bat cooperates at all. RHP Wilfredo Boscan was optioned back to Indy after his third call-up of the year without an appearance. LHP Jayson Aquino, 22, was DFA’d for 40-man roster space. Jayson was bought from Toronto in May and was pitching at Bradenton; he should sneak through waivers.
- Since winning his MLB debut on June 14th, 2008 for the Atlanta Braves against the Angels, Morton is winless in six road interleague starts.

- The Pirates get the sixth Competitive Balance pick in the 2016 Draft in the sandwich round following the first round.
