Evan Meek Outrighted to Triple-A
Per the MLB.com transactions page, relief pitcher Evan Meek has been outrighted to Indianapolis. The right-hander was designated for assignment last week to make room on the 40-man roster for Rick VandenHurk. His outright assignment means the Pirates will retain him in the organization for now. However, Meek has enough time in baseball to qualify as a minor league free agent after the season, so unless they have plans to re-sign him, he was going to be leaving the organization no matter the results of the waiver process.
