Pablo Reyes Sent Outright to Indianapolis

The Pittsburgh Pirates have sent Pablo Reyes outright to Indianapolis after he cleared waivers on Thursday afternoon. Reyes was designated for assignment a week ago when the Pirates signed outfielder Guillermo Heredia.

Reyes hit .203/.274/.322 in 71 games for the Pirates last season. He got off to a slow start in April, posting a .319 OPS in 23 games. He returned to the Pirates in August and had a .699 OPS over his final 48 games. Reyes debuted in the majors in September of 2018 and had an .832 OPS in 18 games. The 26-year-old played six different positions for the Pirates last year, seeing time everywhere except first base, catcher and pitcher. He hit well at Indianapolis in 2019 (.885 OPS), but struggled in winter ball this off-season (.590 OPS in 18 games) and injured his ankle twice, which limited his playing time.
