Pirates Make Andrew Knapp Signing Official, Adonis Medina DFA’d

Published

The Pirates have officially signed catcher Andrew Knapp. To make room for Knapp on the 40-man, the Pirates have designated right-handed pitcher Adonis Medina for assignment. Medina now has 48-hours to clear waivers before being assigned to a minor league team.

Medina was acquired by the Pirates oddly enough through waivers from the Philadelphia Phillies on March 16th. Medina did not appear in a single spring training game this year, and if he clears waivers, one would expect that he would stay with the Pirates Triple-A affiliate.

The reported Knapp signing took place April 5th and was broke by Pirates beat reporter Jason Mackey. Knapp appeared in 62 games in ’21 and put up a .152/.215/.214 slash line with an OPS of .429. Many fans questioned the signing since Micheal Perez put up similar if not better numbers.

The Pirates have one more move to make with the signing of Jake Marisnick. If Greg Allen goes on the 60-Day IL (which is expected), the Pirates could easily place Marisnick on the 40-man roster without any other moves.
