The Pittsburgh Pirates have activated all five players who were on the 60-day disabled list according to their transactions page. Gerrit Cole, Josh Harrison, Elias Diaz, A.J. Schugel and Chris Stewart were all placed on the 60-day DL during the month of September to open up roster space for replacement players.
These moves were all expected and needed to be made by Monday. At least two more rosters moves should be announced soon, as the 40-man roster currently has 42 players. The Pirates opened up three spots on the 40-man roster by sending Jacob Stallings, Zach Phillips and Pedro Florimon outright to Indianapolis. Both Phillips and Florimon have refused the assignment and became free agents. If there are any other roster moves made tonight, we will update this article.
*One very minor move was made earlier today. The Pirates re-signed player/coach Miguel Perez to a minor league contract. He was the third base coach for Indianapolis this season, while also being briefly activated twice during the year to serve as the backup catcher, though he never appeared in a game.
