The Pittsburgh Pirates recalled left-handed pitcher Aaron Fletcher from Indianapolis prior to Tuesday’s game against the Washington Nationals. To make room on the 26-man roster, Miguel Yajure was optioned to Indianapolis.
Yajure started last night’s game for the Pirates and he tossed four shutout innings on four hits, three walks and no strikeouts. He was called up prior to the game.
Fletcher has pitched well for Indianapolis, but his limited time with the Pirates has not gone well. He has a 1.53 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP in 17.2 innings with Indianapolis. In eight appearances with the Pirates, he has allowed nine runs on ten hits and three walks, in 8.2 innings. This is his fourth stint with the Pirates this year.
Jake Marisnick will begin a rehab assignment with Indianapolis tonight. He isn’t eligible to come off of the 60-day IL until July 10th. Dillon Peters, Duane Underwood Jr and Tucupita Marcano all joined Altoona on rehab. Marcano played for Bradenton on Sunday in his first day back from the COVID-19 IL list.
