Rob Biertempfel's post on Pittsburgh Pirates | Latest updates on Sulia
#Pirates GM Huntington said he did not strongly consider calling up Jeff Locke or Rudy Owens from Triple-A. "Before we even think about the guys in Triple-A, we think we've got six major league starters, with Lincoln and Jeff Karstens. Rudy and Jeff and really doing great things down there and they're continuing to grow. We hope not (need callup), because that means we've got another pitcher injured. We feel like we're deeper than we were a year ago, able to sustain another hit, but hope we don't have to."
