Negrych moves up to Indianapolis; could play in Buffalo next weekend

Jim Negrych, an Orchard Park native who was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2006, has been promoted from the Double-A Altoona (Pa.) Curve to the Triple-A Indianapolis Indians, who happen to visit Coca-Cola Field next weekend (June 17-20).

Negrych is a 2003 St. Francis graduate who starred at the University of Pittsburgh before being drafted. He hit .267 in 49 games with Altoona.

We got an email from St. Francis baseball coach Paul Bartell about the call-up and Negrych is on the Indianapolis roster.
