Pirates Promote Tony Watson, Designate Jose Ascanio For Assignment

Jenifer Langosch reports. Given Clint Hurdle's stated preference for a second lefty in the bullpen, this comes as no surprise. Given Tony Watson's minor-league track record, I like his chances of having modest success in the bigs, and I'm hopeful that Ascanio will get through waivers.
