According to the Tribune Review Matt Kata has been designated for assignment to Indy if he clears waivers. This leaves an open spot on the 40 man roster and 13 pitchers on the 25 man active roster.
The Pirates will carry 13 pitchers for at least a few days since Armas is not available due to his start yesterday. Just what we need. A short bench.
Pirates won 5-4 in 11 innings today. That is right, 2 down, 18 to go from my drunken stupor prediction. Amazing what Matt Morris (pitcher) has done to revive the Pirates offense.
