  • McCutchen and Walker promoted to AA
    The Pirates today promoted catcher Neil Walker and outfielder Andrew McCutchen, their top prospects and first-round draft picks in 2004 and 2005, to Class AA Altoona.

    Walker, a Richland native who will turn 21 in two weeks, had been with high Class A Lynchburg, so his move is one level up. He batted .284 with 22 doubles, three home runs and 35 RBIs in 72 games, his season having started a month late because of offseason wrist surgery.

    McCutchen, 19, had been with low Class A Hickory. He batted .291 with 14 home runs, 62 RBIs and 22 steals in 114 games.

    Also, the team promoted outfielder Vic Buttler from Altoona to Class AAA Indianapolis. Buttler, 26, batted .292 with 20 doubles, 14 triples and 51 RBIs in 109 games.
