The Pirates have recalled a few players, demoted a few players, and added to the disabled list…
1. The contract of Mike Zagurski was selected from Triple-A Indianapolis. He’s posted a 2.14 ERA and 15.9 K/9 for Indy this year. Pirates Prospects points out that Zagurski had a June 1st out-clause in his contract, which would explain his addition to the big league bullpen.
2. Bryan Morris was demoted to make room for Zagurski. Morris is 1-2 with a 3.45 ERA in 15.2 innings with the Bucs this year.
3. Jose Tabata was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to an oblique strain. After going on a tear at the beginning of May, Tabata has cooled off as of late, hitting just .154 in his last eight games.
4. Josh Harrison was recalled to take Tabata’s place on the bench. J-Hay hit .279 with a .750 OPS at Triple-A. This move indicates that Travis Snider should be getting more playing time in right field.
