A few transactions to catch up on from today:

-The Pittsburgh Pirates have recalled infielder Pedro Ciriaco and have placed Steve Pearce on the 15-day disabled list.

-No move yet, but Aaron Thompson is in Pittsburgh, and is expected to be added to the team, possibly by tomorrow to make a spot start on Wednesday.

-The Pirates have signed Nelson Figueroa to a minor league deal and have assigned him to Indianapolis.  Just like their signing of Aaron Heilman, this is a move for depth, as Indianapolis is short on pitchers right now.

  1. Could anyone provide any sort of reasonable explanation as to why Ciriaco gets recalled instead of giving Hague a shot?

    • Two Reasons
      A. Hague isn’t on the 40 Man Roster. So they probably don’t want to have to make a 40 Man move.
      B. Ciriaco is a hell of bat boy. Since he never plays he just carries the stuff around and collects a check.

    • too true…

      In all seriousness, Pearce apparently broke his index finger while fielding a ball, and is out for the year.  I like the guy, but he’s been snakebit with injuries his whole ML career, and it now seems unlikely he’ll ever become more than a utility guy.
