Klein recalled, faces Red Sox in 1st major league start

BOSTON (AP) The Texas Rangers have recalled right-hander Phil Klein and given him his first major league start. Klein was called up Wednesday from Triple-A Round Rock and pitched against the Boston Red Sox. Texas designated for assignment outfielder Carlos Peguero and sent right-hander Stolmy Pimentel to Round Rock. In his previous 23 major league games, all with Texas, Klein was...

Gordon homers in 10th to give Royals 7-6 win over Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Alex Gordon homered on the first pitch of the 10th inning, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Texas Rangers 7-6 Tuesday night. Gordon greeted reliever Stolmy Pimentel (0-1) by pulling a ball into the seats down the right-field line. Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas also homered for the AL Central leaders, who had gone ahead on an RBI groundout by Lorenzo Cain in...

Rangers activate Pimentel after waiver claim, demote Edwards

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) The Texas Rangers have activated right-hander Stolmy Pimentel after claiming him off waivers from Pittsburgh and optioned righty Jon Edwards to Triple-A Round Rock. The Pirates designated Pimentel for assignment last Sunday when they set their roster for opening day. The 25-year-old was 1-1 with a 4.91 ERA in nine spring appearances and had a 4.50 ERA in 25...

Pirates set their final roster

The Pirates set their Opening Day roster this afternoon, but I spent most of the day grading tests and working on a season preview for tomorrow, so I’m just getting around to putting the post together now. There is exactly one surprise with this final roster: Charlie Morton’s ugly spring indicated coupled with the rehab from his hip surgery landed him on the disabled list,...

The 2015 Opening Day Roster

The Opening Day roster is set: #Pirates opening day roster: pic.twitter.com/PaS4blBsTq — Bill Brink (@BrinkPG) April 5, 2015 Rob Scahill was the one to sneak in to that final bullpen spot – a true surprise that really came out of nowhere.

News and notes: Roster taking shape, Polanco, Bryant

With John Holdzkom being assigned to Indy on Tuesday, there are only two decisions left to be made regarding the Pirates’€™ opening day roster. It’s Jared Hughes vs. Stolmy Pimentel for the last bullpen spot, and a three way battle between Jaff Decker, Pedro Florimon, and Andrew Lambo for the final bench spot. In the bullpen, either Hughes or Holdzkom was going to have to...

Domonic Brown hit perhaps the most meaningless homer ever

In the Phillies’ 3-2 win over the Pirates on Wednesday, Domonic Brown hit a solo homer in the bottom of the ninth inning. Good for him. It’s a Spring Training homer, but whatever. But when Brown homered, the Phillies were already winning 3-2. And it was the bottom of the ninth. Huh? Something’s off here. I’ll let the Phillies’ website explain what happened. John Holdzkom...

Stolmy Pimentel < 500

The Stolmy Pimentel Story is a pretty straightforward in 2015. He had a rough go of 2014 and spent time bouncing between the bullpen and the disabled list, because he was out of options. The Pirates wanted to hang on to him at all costs, though, because in the 32 2/3 innings that he did pitch with the Pirates, he struck out 38 hitters and threw his fastball 93.3 mph on average. The...

News and notes

Following the Steve Lombardozzi deal the other day, the Pirates made a few other minor trades later in the week: They acquired pitcher Arquimedes Caminero from the Marlins for cash. Caminero has a heck of a name, but he isn’t likely to make the squad – although he could force his way into the mix for the last bullpen spot since he is out of options. He throws hard and has appeared...

Pirates announce full September call-up list

When the Pirates announced that Tony Sanchez and Stolmy Pimentel would join the team on Labor Day, it was understood that there would be a number of additional call-ups in the next 24 hours after Indianapolis’s season officially ended with yesterday’s game. They announced the rest of the call-ups today and while there were two obvious call-ups (Gregory Polanco and Jeff Locke...

Right-handed relief pitcher Stolmy Pimentel has returned from rehab with Double-A Altoona and has been activated from the 15-day disabled list.

OK, so now THIS is the biggest series of the year

The late afternoon yesterday was not kind to the Pirates: in Pittsburgh, Chris Heisey hit his second home run of the afternoon (and only his seventh of the year!) to help the Reds steal a 3-2 win from the Pirates. In St. Louis, the Cardinals turned a 6-4 deficit in the bottom of the eighth inning into a 9-6 win over the Cubs. The effect was dramatic: instead of being tied with the...

Pirates put RHP Pimentel on DL, add RHP Axford

WASHINGTON (AP) The Pittsburgh Pirates have put right-hander Stolmy Pimentel on the 15-day disabled list because of a sprained right ankle and activated right-handed reliever John Axford. The Pirates made the moves before Friday night's game at Washington. Pittsburgh claimed Axford off waivers Thursday from the Cleveland Indians. The 31-year-old was 2-3 with 10 saves and a 3.92...

This Baseball is out for Blood

Here’s something you don’t see everyday: an animate object that may or may not be possessed by demons. Last night’s Tigers/Pirates game featured one peculiar play. I’m not one to believe in the supernatural but this is quite the oddity. Watch here as a pitch thrown by Pirates reliever Stolmy Pimentel proceeds to bounce off the dirt, strike catcher Russell Martin in the...

Pirates Injury Update: Jordy Mercer, Stolmy Pimentel, Neil Walker

The Pittsburgh Pirates continue to stay in contention for a playoff place but they are going to have to overcome a few injuries if they are going to be playing come October. With Andrew McCutchen and Neil Walker currently sidelined, Jordy Mercer joined them as a concern during Thursday's game when he exited with right forearm tightness, while Stolmy Pimentel is heading to the...

Pirates acquire famous mustache-haver, occasionally effective reliever, John Axford

After watching Stolmy Pimentel and Brandon Cumpton turn close games into sure-fire losses on back-to-back days, the Pirates acquired John Axford from the Indians this evening. It doesn’t appear that the Indians will get anything in return for Axford other than salary relief, as the Pirates are now on the hook for what’s left of the $4.5 million the Indians owed him this year...

Tigers 8, Pirates 4

The Pirates had a good chance to stay hot as they rolled in to Detroit on a two game winning streak, facing a young pitcher making his debut while their best starter in the second half took the mound. Things were going along quite well for about half the game, but then it all fell apart and their recent momentum came to a halt. The offense was good enough against Buck Farmer, generating...

Cardinals 5, Pirates 2

Unlike the last two nights, this was a plain old loss that you can’t really complain too much about. It had its frustrating moments for sure, but the Pirates were outplayed from start to finish and that’s going to happen from time to time. The thing is, that’s what makes the two walk off losses with all the men LOB with RISP hurt so much. You’re going to get flat-out beat...

The trouble with the bullpen

If you want to look at the first two games of this Pirates/Cardinals series with absolutely zero emotion and only with cold logic, the conclusion that you would probably draw is this: the Pirates have continued to play well this week, but a combination of bad luck and a thin bullpen has cost them two games that could have been wins. The Pirates play a lot of close games: three of...

Sunday morning (recaps, previews, ruminations, etc.)

Let’s start with last night’s game: I’m inclined once again to ignore the ninth inning debacle, because it was different than Friday’s ninth inning debacle and Stolmy Pimentel giving up two two-run home runs in the ninth inning of a six-run game feels like an isolated incident. I won’t pretend like Jason Grilli coming in and serving up a single to the first hitter he faced...

The day after yesterday

Here’s all we know right now: Francisco Liriano is on the disabled list and Stolmy Pimentel is back with the Pirates. The Pirates did not stretch Pimentel out that much on his rehab assignment, so he’s unlikely to start in Liriano’s place on Sunday. We’ll have to wait until later to see who is likely to start in his place, though smart money would be on Casey Sadler or Vance...
