PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Pirates have officially added newly acquired outfielder Xavier Paul. Who’s spot did he take?

The Pirates have officially added OF Xavier Paul to the active roster; he will wear uniform No. 38.

To make room on the 25-man roster, the Pirates have designated OF John Bowker for assignment.

The decision likely came down to Bowker and infielder Steve Pearce, who likely won out because of being right-handed and his ability to play first and third base.

The club’s 40-man roster now stands at 39 players.
