Pirates activate Richard Rodriguez, recall Jose Osuna

MLB: San Francisco Giants at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

According to various twitterings, righty reliever Richard Rodriguez and corner infielder/outfielder Jose Osuna have returned to the Pirates. Rodriguez had been on the ten-day disabled list with shoulder inflammation. Osuna had been in AAA due to Veteranosity Deficiency Syndrome. Osuna may be returning because it’s too soon to recall Adam Frazier, but I’m just speculating about that.

They’ll take the place of reliever Dovydas Neverauskas and catcher Jacob Stallings. The latter came up due to uncertainties about the health of Francisco Cervelli, which apparently have dissolved. Neverauskas has been awful in two major league stints, but lights out in AAA in between.
