The Pittsburgh Pirates announced that catcher Henry Davis has ended his rehab assignment and rejoined Altoona. He caught on Tuesday for the FCL Pirates, then caught all of yesterday’s no-hitter in Bradenton. He went 1-for-5 with a walk, double and two HBP in his two rehab games.
Altoona has sent pitcher Jeffrey Passantino on a rehab assignment to Bradenton. He has not yet pitched this season. The 26-year-old spent all of last season in Altoona, where he had a 4.62 ERA in 76 innings.
Infielder Claudio Finol has been transferred from Altoona to Greensboro, while shortstop Maikol Escotto has been reassigned to the FCL Pirates. Escotto is hitting .164/.228/.342 in 41 games, with 58 strikeouts in 160 plate appearances. Finol has played just seven games this year split between Greensboro and Altoona.
