Pirates Place Colin Holderman on Injured List; Recall Yohan Ramirez

The Pittsburgh Pirates placed right-handed pitcher Colin Holderman on the 15-day injured list with shoulder soreness prior to Friday night’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies. To take his place on the 26-man roster, right-handed pitcher Yohan Ramirez has been recalled from Indianapolis.

Holderman has a 3.81 ERA in 28.1 innings over 24 appearances, with 24 strikeouts and a 1.20 WHIP. However, those stats are skewed by his last outing in which he left early due to his shoulder injury and failed to record any outs. Before that game, he had a 2.22 ERA in 28.1 innings.

Ramirez has pitched six games for the Pirates this year, allowing five runs on eight hits and four walks in seven innings. He was just sent to Indianapolis five days ago, but he was eligible to come back early due to the injury.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball.

When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.
