Early Saturday afternoon, the Pittsburgh Pirates made some roster moves that included calling up LHP Angel Perdomo.
After an hour rain delay on Saturday, the Pirates were forced to pull their starter Luis Ortiz and gave the game over to Perdomo, who was making his Pirates debut.
Perdomo then retired all seven batters he faced in a row while also striking out three in the process.
Saturday night’s appearance was the first for Perdomo since Aug. 10, 2021, for the Milwaukee Brewers, where he pitched 0.2 innings and gave up an earned run on one hit and three walks.
After the Pirates earned a 4-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals Saturday night, manager Derek Shelton spoke to the media about Perdomo and what he saw from the 29-year-old.
