The Pittsburgh Pirates made a few roster moves this afternoon. They recalled right-hander Jared Hughes from Triple-A, and placed right-hander Chad Qualls on the Bereavement List due to an illness in his family. The team also recalled infielder Yamaico Navarro and optioned Jeff Locke to Triple-A.
Prior to the Navarro move, the Pirates were a man short on the bench, and last night’s injury to Neil Walker didn’t help the situation. Walker isn’t in today’s lineup, although no DL trip has been announced.
