Buddy Boshers and Michael Feliz Join Pirates; Sadler and Holmes Optioned to Indianapolis


Prior to Saturday’s game in San Francisco, the Pittsburgh Pirates optioned pitchers Casey Sadler and Clay Holmes to Indianapolis. To take their place on the 25-man roster, the Pirates recalled right-handed pitcher Michael Feliz and lefty reliever Buddy Boshers, who was claimed from the Houston Astros earlier this week.

In Triple-A Fresno this season, the 30-year-old Boshers had a 3.18 ERA in 51 innings over 41 appearances, with 55 strikeouts, a 1.24 WHP and a 1.16 GO/AO ratio. He pitched one scoreless inning for Indianapolis, allowing just a walk. In three Major League seasons combined, he has a 4.59 ERA in 86.1 innings over 100 appearances, with 78 strikeouts and a 1.27 WHIP.

Feliz made four appearances with Indianapolis since being demoted from the Pirates. He pitched well in the last two games, but the previous one saw him allow five runs in one inning. He gave up a run in his Triple-A debut as well. He was sent down on July 27th.

Holmes was called up for a spot start yesterday, which ended up with him allowing seven runs in 2.2 innings. Sadler made two appearances with the Pirates, allowing four runs on nine hits and three walks in 4.1 innings.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball. When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.
