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.
They are signing Yoshi Tsutsugo
Gustavo Polanco, a catcher in the FCL, was released yesterday to open up a roster spot in the FCL.
John Nogowski is the second player to be designated for assignment today. That was done to make room on the 26-man roster for Yoski Tustsugo, who is active today
When Yoshi Tsutsugo gets into a game for the Pittsburgh Pirates, he will be their 56th player used this season. That will be a new franchise record, now in their 140th season. They did it without September call-ups to pad the stats
