The Pittsburgh Pirates have recalled Tyler Glasnow on Saturday afternoon and optioned reliever A.J. Schugel to Indianapolis to make room on the 25-man roster. Glasnow will make his second Major League start today against the Philadelphia Phillies and his first one in Pittsburgh.
Schugel has a 3.94 ERA in 48 innings over 33 appearances with the Pirates. He has 41 strikeouts and a 1.10 WHIP. He has hit a little rough patch recently, allowing runs in three of his last four appearances.
In other roster news, Eric Fryer has been placed on the paternity list today. He will be replaced on the roster this weekend by Elias Diaz. Fryer has up to three days leave on the paternity list, though the Pirates have off on Monday, so he will only miss two games.
