Minor Moves: Gorski to 60-Day IL; Greg Allen Begins Rehab Work

Some minor moves around the Pittsburgh Pirates system from Wednesday

Matt Gorski was transferred to the 60-day injured list on Wednesday. He originally went on the 7-day IL with a quad injury on June 30th and it was said that he could miss several months. This move guarantees that he can’t return before August 29th, and the Altoona season runs until September 18th, so it seems unlikely that he returns this season. It will be interesting to see if he could return in time for the Arizona Fall League. He has a .294/.376/.664 slash line in 67 games this year split between Greensboro and Altoona, with 23 homers and 17 steals.

Will Kobos was also placed on the 60-day IL, which is rough news for him because he barely played this year, getting in just 14.1 innings, with 15 walks and 18 strikeouts.

Kyle Nicolas was on the temporary inactive list, but he returns to action without missing any actual time on the mound.

Greg Allen will play his first game of 2022 tonight with Bradenton. He has been out all season with multiple hamstring injuries, after it looked like he was certain to make the Opening Day roster for the Pirates.

If any other moves come up today, we will add them here.

Hopefully Gorski will get some AFL time then AAA next year and his debut in the majors.


Be interesting to see if it will be in the OF or at 1B. He was getting work in at 1b some and the talk was they were going to increase the innings.


No room at the Inn for Allen…


I think he has a chance to be the Ben Gamel-replacement and rotate the younger guys through the corners and 4th OFs (That is assuming Reynolds remains a Pirate)


I would be shocked if Reynolds is moved before the 2024 off season. I just don’t think anyone will pony up the package it would take to make a deal now.

Still relatively intrigued to see how Allen returns, and if he may or may not have any impact to the roster.


Could be a quality 4th outfielder to go with the young guys and Reynolds next season until someone else pushes him out and can be traded next year.
