Michael Feliz Placed on Injured List; Pirates Recall Sean Poppen

The Pittsburgh Pirates placed right-handed pitcher Michael Feliz on the 10-day injured list prior to Friday night’s game in Milwaukee due to a cracked nail on his right middle finger. Right-handed pitcher Sean Poppen has been recalled and will be available for tonight’s game.

Feliz has made six appearances this season, giving up two earned runs on seven hits and a walk, with seven strikeouts, in 5.2 innings.

Poppen, who was with the team as part of their taxi squad for this series, has pitched parts of the last two seasons with the Minnesota Twins. He was picked up by the Pirates off of waivers shortly after the 2020 regular season ended. In 16 innings over ten big league appearances, the 27-year-old has a 6.19 ERA and a 1.75 WHIP, with a 9:19 BB/SO ratio.
