To make room on their 40-man roster for the acquisitions in the Gerrit Cole trade, the Pirates have dragmired recent waiver pickups Shane Carle and Engelb Vielma. Both appeared to be candidates to go through waivers from the time they were acquired. Vielma is a good-fielding shortstop with a very weak bat, while Carle, originally a Pirates draftee, has struggled at the AAA level.
