Earlier in the day, the team placed outfielder Corey Dickerson to the Family Medical Emergency Leave list. To take Dickerson’s place on the 25-man roster, outfielder/infielder Adam Frazier was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis.
“It’s a guy we know,” said manager Clint Hurdle about Frazier’s recall. “We’ve got right-handed bats. We wanted to add a left-handed bat and an infielder, so he’s a pretty good fit for those two criteria.”
Frazier hit .273 with three doubles and three walks in eight games with the Indians. He hit .237 with three home runs in 152 plate appearances with the Pirates before he was optioned to the minors on June 10.
“It’s a guy that’s played at this level,” Hurdle said. “The hits weren’t there. The battle in the box was getting better. He was fielding his position very well. He was showing up and he was getting reps.”
The Pirates begin a four-game series with the Arizona Diamondbacks beginning Thursday night at PNC Park.
