Roster Move: Cumpton recalled; Harrison optioned

USA TODAY Sports

Brandon Cumpton has been recalled from Indianapolis and will make the start tonight against the Phillies. Josh Harrison has been optioned back to Triple A.

With the addition of Cumpton, the Pirates have 13 pitchers and 12 position players on the active 25 man roster.

With the Pirates facing two left-handed pitchers, Lannan and Hamels, on Saturday and Sunday, best guess is that Cumpton makes start tonight then is optioned back to Triple A and Tabata recalled tomorrow.

Other News: A.J. Burnett is currently pitching a simulated game (3:15 p.m.).
