Pirates Recall Moskos, Meek to DL

Moskos has gotten the call to the majors.

As speculated last night, the Pittsburgh Pirates have placed Evan Meek on the 15-day disabled list, and have re-called left hander Daniel Moskos.  The 25-man roster and the 40-man roster are both updated with the moves.

There was a lot of concern about Moskos heading in to the 2011 season, mostly due to poor control in his limited time in 2010.  In 17.1 innings with the Indianapolis Indians, Moskos put up a 10.38 ERA, along with an 18:20 K/BB ratio.  He went back to Altoona, where he got things straightened out, and was dominant in the Eastern League playoffs, consistently touching 97 MPH with his fastball.  If you’re wondering what happened with Moskos in Indianapolis last year, Scott McCauley has a great interview with Moskos, posted yesterday, talking about some of the changes Moskos was working on when he made his initial jump to AAA.

So far this season Moskos has been strong, with a 1.69 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP in 10.2 innings, along with a 7:1 K/BB ratio.  His addition gives the Pirates two left handers, pairing up with Joe Beimel, although Moskos is the only one who could be with the Pirates long term.
