Pirates To Promote Justin Thomas, Steven Jackson

The Pirates will likely promote relievers Justin Thomas and Steven Jackson to fill the roster spots of Zach Duke (who's on the DL) and Dana Eveland, the Post-Gazette reports. The Pirates will need an extra starter on Saturday, so there will probably be another roster move then. Jackson is the same fringy pitcher you probably remember, but Thomas might be more interesting. The Pirates acquired him out of the Mariners system a few months back, and he has posted brilliant numbers at Class AAA Indianapolis
