The Pittsburgh Pirates have recalled reliever Dovydas Neverauskas and outfielder Jordan Luplow, who join the team tonight in Chicago, as they take on the Cubs. To make room on the 25-man roster, reliever Johnny Barbato has been optioned to Indianapolis and INF/OF Adam Frazier has been placed on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring, which occurred in yesterday's game.

Neverauskas has already had multiple stints with the Pirates this season, joining them now for the fifth time. He has made just nine appearances over that time, allowing four runs over 11.2 innings. He pitched for Indianapolis on both Friday and Saturday, throwing 27 pitches total. That Friday game was four days after his last appearance with the Pirates, so he should be fine for two innings tonight if needed.
