Pirates recall Dovydas Neverauskas, DFA J.B. Shuck

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at Los Angeles Dodgers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Pirates have recalled right-handed reliever Dovydas Neverauskas. He’ll take the 25-man roster spot of J.B. Shuck, who’s been designated for assignment.

Neverauskas missed the beginning of the season with an oblique injury. Since getting to Indianapolis, he has a 2.25 ERA, with four hits and two walks allowed in eight innings. He’s fanned 13.

Shuck played in 27 games with the Pirates, batting 213/339/239. That was good for a dismal 73 xRC+, nearly identical to his career mark of 71.
