Pittsburgh Pirates Recall Duke Welker, Other Notes

The Pittsburgh Pirates have recalled right-handed pitcher Duke Welker from their Triple-A Indianapolis minor league affiliate. To make room for him on the parent roster, the Pirates optioned Josh Harrison to the same Triple-A team while also releasing left-handed pitcher Jonathan Sanchez after having been designated for assignment last week following a horrible year-plus. Look for Welker to provide a fresh arm to the bullpen.
