The Pittsburgh Pirates have released right-handed pitcher Robby Rowland. Outfielder Jeff Roy was activated from the disabled list and took Rowland’s place on the West Virginia Power roster.

Rowland started the year in the bullpen for Bradenton, posting a 6.05 ERA in 38.2 innings. He was recently demoted to West Virginia, where he struggled in six appearances. He was a starter for Bradenton last year and pitched in West Virginia in 2012 after the Pirates acquired him in exchange for Brett Lorin.

      • Only 5 years ago and everyone in that deal out of baseball except Adcock and of course Ronny Cedeno. Ronny Cedeno still only 31. Seems like he should be 38 by now.

        • Thanks John. 27 ip since 2011 and soon to 28. I am guessing the only reason he is still around is because he is a big sinkerballer. Lorin is in Indy ball…pitching well…but he always did. It is strange no one would want him to fill out a AA or AAA roster.
