PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Pirates have promoted left-hander Jeff Locke from the minors and plan to start him Monday night against San Francisco.

Locke was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis and right-hander Casey Sadler was optioned to the minor league team.

Locke was an NL All-Star last year and then faltered in the second half. He went 8-2 with a 2.15 ERA in 18 starts before the break, but just 2-5 with a 6.12 ERA after that.

This year, Locke was 0-1 with a 5.68 ERA in four starts for Indianapolis. He was limited to just two innings in spring training because of a strained oblique muscle.
