Pirates Option Jason Jaramillo And Justin Thomas To Indianapolis

Dejan Kovacevic tweets that the Pirates have optioned catcher Jason Jaramillo and reliever Justin Thomas to Indianapolis. Zach Duke, who will soon return from a rehab assignment at Altoona, will probably take one of those roster spots.

Jaramillo had 67 at bats for the Pirates. Starting catcher Ryan Doumit's defense has been disastrous, so I would think the Pirates would need to bring up another catcher, and veteran backstop Erik Kratz has hit brilliantly for Indianapolis. Thomas has only appeared in three games for the Bucs.
