The Pittsburgh Pirates made three roster moves this afternoon:

**They recalled Alex Presley from Triple-A Indianapolis.

**To make room for Presley, they’ve optioned Josh Harrison to Indianapolis.

**Chase d’Arnaud has been recalled from his rehab assignment, reinstated from the DL, and optioned to Indianapolis.

D’Arnaud was on the 60-day disabled list, and didn’t previously count toward the 40-man roster. That roster is currently at 40-men, so a corresponding move should be made. Maybe that’s why the Pirates have been adding Triple-A relief pitching depth all morning.

    I thought Mazzaro was going to be released at one point but now it looks like Zagurski. Who knew Mazarro would still be around and pitching well.

    It could be either one of the McDonald’s too.

    I don’t think they can release James MacDonald right nowBrian,but the EIEIO probably should be the one to go. And,after what I saw of J Mac on Memorial Day in Altoona, I really don’t see much hope for him in the future. 12 strikes out of 31 pitches ?!?

      Yeah, they are claiming Ja McDonald has a blister but I’m not sure anymore.
