Pirates Activate David Bednar from Injured List

The Pittsburgh Pirates activated relief pitcher David Bednar from the 15-day Injured List prior to Thursday’s game against the Chicago Cubs. They placed pitcher Eric Stout on the 15-day Injured List to make room on the active roster.

Bednar has been out since August 3rd with a back injury. He made three scoreless rehab appearances with Indianapolis over the last week, throwing one inning each time. Prior to the injury, he had 2.70 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP, 63 strikeouts and 17 saves in 46.2 innings with the Pirates.

Stout pitched last night, giving up four runs in one inning. He has a 5.64 ERA in 22.1 innings this season. His injury is described as lower back discomfort and he will not return this season, which has just 14 days left.
