PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – With an opening in the rotation still available after the Pirates placed Wandy Rodriguez on the disabled list, the Pirates announced the call-up of starting pitcher Jeff Locke.

The Pirates have recalled LHP Jeff Locke from Triple-A Indianapolis and have optioned RHP Casey Sadler to their Triple-A affiliate.

Locke is scheduled to start Monday night’s game against the Giants at PNC Park.

Locke is coming off a year in which he made the All-Star game posting an ERA of 3.52 and a record of 10-7.

The Pirates are in desperate need of good, starting pitching as their starters have gone 15-straight games without recording a victory.
