Pirates make roster moves

USA TODAY Sports

To make room for the expected callups of Ryan Reid and Jared Hughes, the team has optioned Alex Presley to AAA, placed Jeanmar Gomez on the 15-day DL, and placed Phil Irwin on the 60-day DL.

That's disappointing about Irwin, assuming it means he may not be back for a while. He last pitched on May 2. If the move is backdated to then, he's out until July 1.

It's also a little disappointing to see Presley go down. He's certainly more useful than Mike Zagurski and the team can easily get by without Zagurski until ... forever.
