Title seems kind of confusing, right?
The reason for the recall is that he was on the DL. It’s just technical. He was immediately sent down to Triple A Indianapolis.
In addition to that reliever Zack Thornton has been promoted to Indy.

I guess I should also mention that the Pirates have traded for two pitchers in the past two days.
The Red Sox sent Minor Leaguer Graham Godfrey to the Bucs, likely for cash. AAA depth.
Indy also acquired pitcher Atahualpa Severino from the Royals AAA team in Omaha.
Neither of those guys are likely to spend time in the majors.
At least I hope Severino doesn’t make it so I don’t have to commit that name to memory.
