The Pittsburgh Pirates have added left-handed pitcher Cam Vieaux to the 40-man roster today and recalled him from Indianapolis ahead of Sunday’s game. To make room on the 26-man roster, pitcher Yohan Ramirez has been optioned to Indianapolis. To make room on the 40-man roster, catcher Jose Godoy has been designated for assignment.
Vieaux pitched with the Pirates earlier this year, getting into five games. In five innings of work, he allowed nine runs (eight earned) on 11 hits, four walks and eight strikeouts. He was designated for assignment last month, but he cleared waivers and went back to Indianapolis. With Indianapolis this year, the 28-year-old southpaw has a 3.00 ERA in 42 innings, with an 0.88 WHIP and 37 strikeouts.
Ramirez joined the Pirates from Indianapolis earlier this month. In seven innings over six appearances, he has allowed five runs on eight hits and four walks.
Godoy went 0-for-7 in five games with the Pirates, and he was 2-for-7 in two games with Indianapolis. The Pirates picked him up on waivers on August 5th.
