Pirates demote NH's Locke
According to a report on piratesprospects.com, Locke and recent call-up Tony Sanchez have been sent to Double-A Altoona to make room for newly acquired players Marlon Byrd and John Buck. who came over from the Mets.
"This move allows us to give Jeff a short break. It also allows a Tony Sanchez to get back to the major leagues as soon as the rules permit us to do so," Huntington told piratesprospects.com. "In addition, this gives us the opportunity to maintain a full roster until both Jeff and Tony can return to the club on Sept. 3. That is when the Double-A season is over and when the club intends to recall both players."
Locke opened the season with a blistering pace and made the All-Star Game. Just after the mid-season classic, Locke was 9-2 with an ERA of 2.11.
In that span, Locke has not been able to pitch beyond the sixth inning and was removed in the third on Aug. 17 against Arizona.
