Catcher Jin-de Jhang (張進德)---a 23-year-old catcher from Taitung, Taiwan---was called up to AAA Indianapolis yesterday after a number of recent injuries led to a shortage at the position. Jhang, who signed with Pittsburgh in 2011, had spent the entirety of 2016 with the Altoona Curve, hitting .290 with 13 RBIs in 31 games as the team's backup catcher.
