The Pirates announced they right-handed pitcher Max Kranick has been recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis and fellow righty Shelby Miller has had his contract selected as part of September’s expanded rosters. Kranick will start for the Pirates Wednesday night against the White Sox.

Miller will wear #50 for Pittsburgh.
