Pirates Recall Chase d’Arnaud

The Pittsburgh Pirates have recalled infielder Chase d’Arnaud from Triple-A, filling the roster spot that was created when the team released Erik Bedard. The Pirates needed an extra bench player with Neil Walker currently injured and out of the lineup for the second straight night. They won’t need a starter to replace Bedard until the end of the week.

D’Arnaud has been on a hot streak recently in Triple-A. He has an eight game hitting streak, and a .381/.395/.643 line in 42 at-bats over his last ten games. The shortstop had an .811 OPS in the month of July, and has a .725 OPS this month. He’s also been a threat on the bases, stealing 33 in 38 attempts.
