Pirates Need a Bullpen Reinforcement; Who Gets Added and Who Goes? (+)



Jose Hernandez, Pittsburgh Pirates

PITTSBURGH — Two-straight extra-inning games already presents enough stress on a bullpen, but it becomes an even bigger issue when carrying 12 pitchers on the roster as opposed to the standard 13. 

The Pittsburgh Pirates have had a short-handed bullpen since swapping out Ryder Ryan for Ji Hwan Bae prior to Tuesday’s game against the San Francisco Giants.

Since the move was made, the Pirates have played 20 innings over their last two games and have used all seven relief pitchers currently on their active roster. 

It seems all but certain that the Pirates will make a move to bring up an arm from Triple-A Indianapolis before Thursday’s rubber match against the Giants.
