NEWS AND RUMORS

Follow along throughout the day as we provide updates and commentary on the daily Pirates news, along with links to stories around Pittsburgh Baseball Network.

The Pirates placed Anthony Alford and Bryse Wilson on the injured list today. Wilson is just fatigue related. He’s basically getting a rest so he can finish up the season in the rotation. Alford was a late scratch yesterday after suffering back spasms. The Pirates had to open up a spot for Dillon Peters to start today, while Ben Gamel also returned to the active roster. He last played on August 4th, so he missed the minimal amount of time.

Update: Pirates sign a player. No word yet if he’s going to Indy or if it’s a minors/majors deal.
