The Pittsburgh Pirates today recalled Kyle McPherson and Alex Prelsey from Triple-A Indianapolis. In order to make room, the club optioned Chase d’Arnaud to High-A Bradenton, and outrighted Jeff Clement to Bradenton.
Both McPherson and Prelsey are now automatically eligible for the postseason roster. With the outright of Clement, it opens up a spot on the 40-man roster. Clement went 0-for-6 with two strikeouts since being selected from Triple-A on August 24.
