The Pittsburgh Pirates had to make some moves ahead of Thursday’s day game against the Milwaukee Brewers. Catcher Tyler Heineman was placed on the 10-day Injured List with a groin strain, and pitcher Dillon Peters was placed on the 15-day IL with left elbow inflammation. To take their place on the 26-man roster, left-handed pitcher Eric Stout was recalled from Indianapolis and catcher Taylor Davis was added to the 40-man roster and recalled. The 40-man roster had an open spot after the trade deadline.
Davis has played parts of four seasons in the majors, including time with the 2021 Pirates, though that has amount to 22 games. The 32-year-old can play both corner infield spots as well. He’s been with Indianapolis all year, where he was hitting .282/.358/.320 in 35 games.
Stout has split the season between Triple-A and the majors with both the Chicago Cubs and the Pirates. His big league time has been limited to four games so far. He has allowed one run in 11.1 innings with Indianapolis, and one unearned run in 1.2 innings with the Pirates.
