Pirates Takeaways: Oviedo Bends, Doesn’t Break In Pirates Debut (+)

PITTSBURGH — Johan Oviedo took the mound as the starter in his Pittsburgh Pirates’ debut in Friday night’s 4-0 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays.

The big right-hander worked three scoreless innings at PNC Park, allowed a pair of singles, walked three and struck out four. He was acquired from the St. Louis Cardinals in the Jose Quintana trade Aug. 1 and optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Three of those strikeouts came in the first inning. Oviedo mowed down the top of Toronto’s line up in order, which is no easy task. Toronto has a top of the order that could rival any team in the league.
