Ray Sadler


Sadler has been optioned back to the minor leagues by the Pittsburgh Pirates, opening a spot on the roster for Michael Restovich, who was acquired from the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday. The 24-year-old outfielder went 2-for-8 with a home run and one RBI in three games during his short stint with Pittsburgh after having his contract purchased from Double-A Altoona earlier this week.


Sadler notched the first hit of his major league career, belting a Noah Lowry pitch over the left-field wall in the third inning of Wednesday's victory over the San Francisco Giants. The Pirates' outfielder, who also singled later in the contest, is now 2-for-8 in three games with Pittsburgh since having his contract purchased from Double-A Altoona earlier this week.

Sadler was called up when Craig Wilson was forced to undergo surgery on his ailing finger. He likely won't be in the lineup on a daily basis, especially with Wednesday's acquisition of Michael Restovich.


The Pittsburgh Pirates have purchased Sadler's contract from Double-A Altoona, filling the roster spot of injured first baseman/outfielder Craig Wilson. In eight games with the minor league club this season, the outfielder is batting .290 with one home run and two RBI.

Sadler will be making his major league debut. He probably won't see significant playing time as a backup in the Pirates' outfield, so his fantasy value is limited.
