Rocco DeMaro, host of the Pirates post-game show Extra Innings for the past four seasons, revealed some unfortunate news on his Twitter feed this afternoon.
The Pirates designated reliever Jack Taschner for assignment tonight, and optioned Jeff Clement to Triple-A Indianapolis. Taschner will be replaced by Brad Lincoln, but the second roster move will not be announced until Wednesday. There are unconfirmed rumblings that Jose Tabata will be the one promoted to Pittsburgh.
Pitching prospect Bryan Morris, who has not allowed an earned run in 33 innings for High-A Bradenton, will be promoted to Double-A Altoona. Neal Huntington said that Morris could be promoted to Triple-A Indianapolis by the end of the season.
Rocco DeMaro reports that Kevin Hart has been diagnosed with a labrum tear in his right shoulder.
