Pirates Recall Andrew Lambo

The Pittsburgh Pirates have recalled OF/1B Andrew Lambo and optioned RHP Gerrit Cole to Bristol. Lambo has a .328/.389/.563 in 61 games with Indianapolis. He has been on a hot streak recently, hitting six homers over his last eight games. He has played 21 games at first base this season, 33 games in the outfield.

Cole was sent down to Bristol so he will be eligible to be recalled on September 1st for his next start. If he was sent to another team, he wouldn’t eligible to be recalled until their season ended, which would push back his start.
