Pirates Release Class AA Reliever Tom Boleska

The Pirates have released Tom Boleska and activated Brian Leach, which is slightly surprising, because Boleska always put up solid numbers before this year. He got off to a bad start this season, with 11 strikeouts and 12 walks in his first 16.2 innings, and that was it. Oh well. Boleska has never been regarded as a top prospect, the Bucs have always liked Leach's arm, and I suppose there haven't been a lot of underachievers on the Curve's pitching staff this year.
