The Pittsburgh Pirates have recalled outfielder Jack Suwinski from Indianapolis. To make room on the 26-man roster, Bligh Madris has been optioned to Indianapolis.
Suwinski had a very rough go in Indianapolis after putting up a .198/.288/.428 slash line in 72 games with the Pirates. He batted .214/.285/.410 in 31 games, with 49 strikeouts in 130 plate appearances. That OPS actually went up 80 points in his last two games.
Madris was doing the opposite of Suwinski, hitting well with Indianapolis before he got his call for the majors. He had a nice first week with the Pirates, but it’s been rough since then, hitting .125/.214/.159 in his last 33 games.
Suwinski will be in the lineup for tonight’s game in Milwaukee.
The Pirates also announced that Kevin Padlo cleared waivers and was sent outright to Indianapolis.
