Pirates Recall Carmen Mlodzinski, Option Quinn Priester



Carmen Mlodzinski, Pittsburgh Pirates

The Pittsburgh Pirates have added a bullpen reinforcement, recalling right-hander Carmen Mlodzinski from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Mlodzinski began the season on the injured list with elbow inflammation and was sent to Triple-A Indianapolis — where he has spent the season — upon his return. With Indianapolis, Mlodzinski posted a 6.60 ERA and struck out 13 batters in 15 innings through 13 appearances.

The 25-year-old established himself as an important piece of the Pirates’ bullpen last season. In his rookie campaign, Mldozinski went 3-3 with a 2.25 ERA and recorded one save through 35 appearances.

To make room for Mlodzinki on the active roster, the Pirates optioned right-handed starter Quinn Priester to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Priester was the Pirates’ starter against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night and allowed four runs over six innings pitched.

The Pirates’ 2019 first-round pick has gone 0-4 with a 4.33 ERA through five starts on the year.

I hope Modlzinski is alright. Doesn’t seem like he was getting good results in AAA. His elbow might not be 100%. He was excellent down the stretch last year. 97 mph cutter and devastating sweeper. I kind of thought the callup might be Wily Peralta. He was real good in his last 7 or 8 outings in AAA. But he’s not on the 40 man roster. Now we have Daulton Jefferies taking up a spot. That makes it tight.
