SP Jeff Locke is not a candidate, as he pitched for Triple-A Indianapolis Monday, April 21. Ps Brandon Cumpton, Jeanmar Gomez and Stolmy Pimentel are believed to be the top candidates.

The Pittsburgh Pirates recalled SP Brandon Cumpton from Triple-A Indianapolis Tuesday, July 2, and optioned 3B Josh Harrison to Indy in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Cumpton will likely get the starting nod against the Philadelphia Phillies Tuesday with the team pushing Jeff Locke back. Cumpton shouldn't be considered for fantasy purposes.

The Pittsburgh Pirates are expected to call up C Tony Sanchez from Triple-A Indianapolis Friday, June 21. SP Brandon Cumpton will be sent back to Indianapolis in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez already had a career-high nine homers at Indy this year, although he'll probably provide moderate power in the majors due to lackluster contact skills. His defense may be the best part of his game at this point. Russell Martin is still in the picture, too, so Sanchez is nothing more than a backup.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have called up on P Brandon Cumpton to be on the taxi squad Friday, June 14, and he's likely to start Saturday, June 15, against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Fantasy Tip: He's replacing A.J. Burnett (calf), who's on the DL. Not a terrible NL-only spot-start option on paper, but there's little reason for most, if not all, owners to take a chance.
