Contreras was sent down to Triple-A Indianapolis on April 21st. Pirates manager Derek Shelton and general manager Ben Cherington mentioned that Contreras was sent down to Triple-A to be stretched out as a starter.
Contreras, in his past couple of starts, has surpassed the 80 pitch mark, and management must’ve seen enough to make the call to send the 22-year-old back to Pittsburgh just in time for the Colorado Rockies series starting Monday.
Contreras, during his stint in Triple-A, went 0-1, 2.66 ERA, 13 hits, 11 walks, and 24 strikeouts.
The Pirates do not have a starter listed for Tuesday, so maybe Contreras will get his first start in the Majors of 2022.
