Daily Pirates Discussion: September 19, 2021

The old Pirates Game Discussion on No Quarter is now a Daily Pirates Discussion. We will update the article throughout the day with game notes, links to Pittsburgh Baseball Network stories, and any news for the day.

Max Kranick is making the start today so the Pirates will need to make a move to get him on the active roster.

Today is the last game for Altoona. Bradenton and Greensboro made the playoffs and the Triple-A season was extended ten games, so it’s very possible that some players from Altoona could be moving up to Indianapolis after this game.

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.

Max Kranick was added to the roster today and Bryse Wilson goes on the injured list with a minor hamstring injury that he pitched through last night. Well-timed I’d say because we already knew Kranick was coming back today and Wilson has already thrown a total of 127 innings this year, compared to 15 last year.
