The Pittsburgh Pirates made a couple of rosters moves on Saturday before their game against the Philadelphia Phillies. Outfielder Jared Oliva has been sent to Indianapolis, while newly-acquired IF/OF Hoy Park and pitcher Bryse Wilson both join the team. The Pirates were one player short after trades yesterday, so no other roster move needs to be made.
The 25-year-old Park played three games with Indianapolis after joining the Pirates, going 0-for-10 with two walks. He had a 1.042 OPS in 48 games at Triple-A with the New York Yankees this season. He has played one big league game. He came to the Pirates in the Clay Holmes deal.
Wilson last pitched on July 26th when he threw three shutout innings in a start against the New York Mets. He defeated the Pirates on May 22nd, allowing one earned run over 6.2 innings. He has a 4.85 ERA, a 1.55 WHIP and 21 strikeouts in 31.2 innings this season with the Atlanta Braves. He came to the Pirates in the Richard Rodriguez deal.
Oliva hit .175/.233/.225 in 20 games with the Pirates.
