Pirates Transactions

Pirates Recall Ryder Ryan From Triple-A Indianapolis



Pittsburgh Pirates, Ryder Ryan

The Pittsburgh Pirates have filled the void left by the recently-designated for assignment Ben Heller by recalling relief pitcher Ryder Ryan from Triple-A Indianapolis.

This will already be Ryan’s fourth stint in the big leagues with the Pirates this season after cracking the club’s Opening Day roster out of spring training. With Pittsburgh, he is 1-0 with a 3.46 ERA in 11 relief appearances. The right-hander has totaled 13 innings and has walked seven with 14 strikeouts.

Ryan, who had just one inning of major-league experience heading into this season, recorded his first MLB win in the Pirates’ 7-2 defeat of the Miami Marlins on Mar. 29.

Ryan has totaled 10 appearances out of the bullpen with Indianapolis and has posted a 3.77 ERA.

The Pirates designated Heller for assignment on Monday to make room on the 40-man roster for infielder/outfielder Niko Goodrum, who was claimed off waivers from the Los Angeles Angels.

Heller had two poor showings with the Pirates after having his contract selected a week ago. The right-hander allowed 12 runs (11 earned) in two appearances, a total of two innings pitched.

Goodrum, meanwhile, was optioned to Indianapolis upon being claimed. He appeared in 13 games this season between the Angels and Tampa Bay Rays and went 3 for 29.
