Transactions: Ciriaco, Pearce, Thompson, Figueroa
A few transactions to catch up on from today:
-The Pittsburgh Pirates have recalled infielder Pedro Ciriaco and have placed Steve Pearce on the 15-day disabled list.
-No move yet, but Aaron Thompson is in Pittsburgh, and is expected to be added to the team, possibly by tomorrow to make a spot start on Wednesday.
-The Pirates have signed Nelson Figueroa to a minor league deal and have assigned him to Indianapolis. Just like their signing of Aaron Heilman, this is a move for depth, as Indianapolis is short on pitchers right now.
