Stolmy Pimentel Begins His Minor League Rehab Assignment Tonight

Stolmy Pimentel, who is currently on the 15-day disabled list with an ankle injury, will make his first rehab appearance tonight in Altoona. Pimentel will start the game and throw one inning.

Pimentel was placed on the disabled list last Friday, and threw a bullpen on Sunday. The Pirates don’t have to rush him back, and my guess is that they will wait for rosters to expand before bringing him back up.

  • At the very end of the season when making the playoff roster, if they don’t think Pimentel should be on it, would he have to clear waivers? I doubt it do to all the September call ups teams do, but I’m just making sure

  • It will be in Akron. The Curve are back home for their final homestand tomorrow, Friday the 22nd Tim.
