WHY IS KINGHAM IN AAA?

posted by Mark Madden -

The Pirates sent P Nick Kingham to Class AAA Indianapolis.

Kingham has started six games.

He’s got the best ERA (3.82) among all pitchers who have a started a game for the Pirates.

He’s got the best WHIP (.99) among all pitchers who have a started a game for the Pirates.

He’s got the lowest opposition batting average (.209) among all pitchers who have a started a game for the Pirates.

Kingham is 26, so the Pirates aren’t bringing him along slowly. They’ve already done that.

Why is Kingham in AAA?

Is it because the Pirates have to pitch Ivan Nova to justify the $9.1 million they’re paying him? They’re on the hook for that no matter what.

Is it because the Pirates want to stall Kingham’s service clock?

Why is Kingham in AAA? Does anybody have a good answer? One that’s got something to do with trying to win baseball games is preferred.
