Casey Sadler Takes Roster Spot of Bryan Morris

Following the trade of Bryan Morris to the Miami Marlins, the Pittsburgh Pirates have promoted Casey Sadler to take his place on the major league roster. Sadler was pulled from his last start while he was in the bullpen warming up on Friday, so there may have been an indication at that time that a deal was going to be made. Sadler pitched twice for the Pirates earlier this month out of the bullpen. He threw a total of four scoreless...

Pirates Trade Bryan Morris to Marlins For a Draft Pick

The Pittsburgh Pirates have traded reliever Bryan Morris to the Miami Marlins for the 39th overall pick in the upcoming draft. The pick is a competitive balance pick, which means it can be traded. Pittsburgh was going to have to make a roster decision when Stolmy Pimentel returns from the disabled list and it looks like Morris was the odd man out. He has a 3.80 ERA in 21 appearances this year, posting a 1.56 WHIP and a 12/14 BB/K...

Wandy Rodriguez Placed on Unconditional Release Waivers

Wandy Rodriguez has been placed on unconditional release waivers, the Pittsburgh Pirates have announced. This essentially cuts ties with Rodriguez, who will be released after he clears waivers.

He also struggled during two rehab starts in Altoona. The Pirates...

Minor Moves: Ryan Beckman to Altoona, Brandon Mann Released

The Pittsburgh Pirates have made a bunch of minor moves in the farm system, with the biggest one occurring today when they released pitcher Brandon Mann and assigned reliever Ryan Beckman to the Altoona Curve. Mann was a free agent signing over the off-season. He had pitched well, but he is already 30 years old and pitching in AA, so he was mostly just being used as an innings eater. In 14 appearances, he had a 2.91 ERA over 34...
