The Pittsburgh Pirates have officially called up Ryan Reid and Jared Hughes. To make room for the two pitchers on the roster they have placed Jeanmar Gomez on the 15-day DL (right forearm inflammation/strain) and have optioned Alex Presley to Triple-A.
The Pirates had to add Ryan Reid to the 40-man roster. To create a spot they had to re-instate Phil Irwin from the Triple-A disabled list, recall him to the majors, and place him on the 60-day DL. This means that Irwin will accrue major league salary and major league service time while on the disabled list.
