RUMOR: Danny Ortiz Promoted, Freese to DL

UPDATE: Move has been confirmed by Rob Biertempfel of the Trib

IMPORTANT: This is not yet an official move. This news was found on Twitter. However, both of the sources below seem reputable. Hiram Torraca is an editor of a newspaper in Puerto Rico.


 

Freese has been sidelined since the 24th with a hamstring injury. He will be able to be activated on May 5th. Since the Pirates took so long to send him to the DL, Id imagine they will be able to activate him on the 5th as his injury doesn’t seem to be serious.

Danny Ortiz is a 27 year old outfielder. He was signed in 2015 as a minor league free agent. He will add another left handed bat off the bench for the Pirates that can play outfield. His career numbers aren’t anything special, but neither are Gift Ngoepe’s and look what he is doing. My guess is he will not receive any starts, and is strictly depth.
