PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Pirates have recalled right-handed pitcher Bryan Morris from the AAA Indianapolis and have designated left-handed pitcher Jonathan Sanchez for assignment.
Morris began the season with Indianapolis and recorded two saves in his first two appearances with the Indians.
He was recalled by Pittsburgh on April 12, when Chris Leroux was designated for assignment and tossed three scoreless innings in his only appearance with the Pirates on April 15 against St. Louis, before being optioned back to Indiana the next day.
Morris recorded three more saves in three AAA outings from April 19 to 28.
Sanchez went 3-0 with an 11.85 ERA in five games with Pittsburgh in 2013.
