Jordan Lyles Activated from Injured List; Geoff Hartlieb Optioned to Indianapolis

The Pittsburgh Pirates activated right-handed pitcher Jordan Lyles from the 10-day injured list. To make room on the 25-man roster, right-handed pitcher Goeff Hartlieb was optioned to Indianapolis.

Lyles has been out since leaving his start on June 8th early due to left hamstring tightness. He made a rehab start for Indianapolis six days ago, going 5.1 innings, with one run on two hits and three walks, while picking up seven strikeouts. He will be on the mound tonight against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Hartlieb has been with the Pirates since May 17th. In 14 relief appearances, he posted an 8.10 ERA in 20 innings, with a .333 BAA, 20 strikeouts and a 1.90 WHIP. He had a 3.32 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP in 19 innings with Indianapolis prior to being called up to the majors for the first time.

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.
