Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Brent Morel was recalled from Class AAA Indianapolis Monday, July 20.
Fantasy Tip: Morel could be the team's starting third baseman for the time being with Jung Ho Kang replacing Jordy Mercer at shortstop. Morel may only be a short-term option if the team decides to add a player before the trade deadline. Owners in NL-only leagues could consider adding Morel for the time being, but he probably should be avoided in deeper mixed leagues at this point.
