Prior to Wednesday’s day game against the Milwaukee Brewers, the Pittsburgh Pirates reinstated right-handed pitcher JT Brubaker from the Paternity List and recalled right-handed pitcher Miguel Yajure from Indianapolis. To make room on the 26-man roster, pitchers Eric Stout and Cam Vieaux were optioned to Indianapolis.
Yajure has been pitching better recently, but has still struggled in the majors and Indianapolis this year. He has a 4.18 ERA in his last 28 innings, compared to an overall 6.09 ERA in 54.2 innings with Indianapolis, and an 8.16 ERA in 14.1 innings with the Pirates this year. The 24-year-old has allowed three runs over ten innings in his last two starts, picking up seven strikeouts each game.
Stout has a 4.61 ERA in 14 appearances with the Pirates, posting a 1.83 WHIP and 14 strikeouts in 13.2 innings.
Vieaux has a 10.38 ERA and a 2.31 WHIP in 8.2 innings, despite collecting 15 strikeouts in his eight appearances.
