Pirates Recall Liover Peguero; Tucupita Marcano to IL

The Pittsburgh Pirates have called up 21-year-old shortstop prospect Liover Peguero from Altoona after Tucupita Marcano had to be placed on the COVID-19 Injured List. Peguero was the only player on the Altoona roster who is also on the 40-man roster, making it easy for the Pirates to get him from their home game in Altoona to PNC Park in time for tonight’s game.

Peguero isn’t in the starting lineup tonight and he might not be with the team long, but he gets a chance to get a taste of the big leagues. He’s hitting .292/.315/.469 in 54 games this season. Until this season, his only defensive experience was at shortstop, but he had made some starts at second base this year.

Marcano is hitting .262/.318/.410 in 19 games with the Pirates this season.

Read on MLBTR the Indians tweeted out there was a big announcement coming after game is over tonight. Appears Cruz may finally be getting freed from AAA jail.

Too little, too late Ben!

Cruz’ head is going to explode.

Any feedback from the one game 1b experiment? I guess the fact that it was only one game is the answer!

ricramer

More than one head will explode, eh?

Perhaps they can ship out Beede or Hembree in return for Madris this weekend.

ricramer

Sorry, meant Banda.

It’s good Vieaux will have some company in the closet.

I hope he gets to play some. (and doesn’t pick up an injury)

I look at the amount of “real” OFs getting close (not sure that OFs includes Canaan), and see better options than Cole Tucker, or even Marcano getting time in the grass.

jedeweese

Still see BR traded and not extended, although I hope I am wrong.
