Pirates make plethora of moves

First, the Bucs announced that Kevin Correia will be making the start tonight in San Diego. Dejan Kovacevic reported that Correia volunteered to make the start despite pitching in relief yesterday.

Justin Wilson and Kyle McPherson were both recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis. They’ll most likely help in relief tonight, as the bullpen was well-worked in yesterday’s 19 inning affair.

In the corresponding moves, Juan Cruz was designated for assignment and Jordy Mercer went on paternity leave. It was rumored that Chad Qualls was coming off the bereavement list but that apparently is not the case. That move may come after the game or tomorrow when either McPherson or Wilson goes back to the minors. Cruz is a better option out of the ‘pen than Qualls, but apparently the Pirates don’t think so.

Series preview is HERE.

Go Bucs
