    The Pirates recalled Moreta from Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday.

    The 27-year-old has registered a decent 4.24 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 66:24 K:BB in 51 innings this season out of the Pittsburgh bullpen. Moreta will fill a middle relief role down the stretch.

  • Pirates' Dauri Moreta: Dispatched to Triple-A

    The Pirates optioned Moreta to Triple-A Indianapolis on Wednesday.

    Moreta was sent out to the minors to clear room on 26-man active roster for right-hander Luis Ortiz, who was recalled from Triple-A ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday versus the Cardinals. The demotion comes after Moreta was touched up for two earned runs on three hits and one walk in 1.2 innings of relief in Tuesday's 6-3 win over St. Louis.

  • Pirates' Dauri Moreta: Makes return from IL

    The Pirates reinstated Moreta (back) from the 15-day injured list Sunday.

    Moreta received the green light to rejoin Pittsburgh after striking out two over a scoreless inning in his lone rehab appearance Thursday with Triple-A Indianapolis. Prior to landing on the IL on Aug. 4 with lower-back soreness, Moreta had notched four wins, one save and four holds over 48.1 innings out of the Pittsburgh bullpen while pitching to a 4.10 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 63:22 K:BB. He should step back into a key setup role in front of closer David Bednar.

    Moreta was placed on the IL on Aug. 4 due to soreness in his lower back, and Friday will mark the beginning of the final stage in his recovery process. The Pirates haven't indicated how long they plan on keeping Moreta in the minors, but it's possible he returns ahead of their next homestand Monday.

  • Pirates' Dauri Moreta: Lands on injured list

    The Pirates placed Moreta on the 15-day injured list Friday with lower-back soreness, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports.

    After giving up three runs on three hits and two walks over one inning Thursday against Milwaukee, Moreta will be sidelined for at least two weeks. The 27-year-old righty holds a 4.10 ERA and 1.20 WHIP on the season and figures to return in late August.

  • Pirates' Dauri Moreta: Three strikeouts in clean outing

    Moreta didn't allow a baserunner while striking out three over 1.1 scoreless innings Friday against the Angels.

    Following a rough June that saw him allow 10 runs over 10 innings, Moreta has given up only one run with a 0.72 WHIP and 13 strikeouts through 8.1 frames in July. While currently holding a middle-relief role in Pittsburgh, continued impactful outings could lead to a rise in role if the Pirates trade away closer David Bednar and/or setup man Colin Holderman continues to struggle.

  • Pirates' Dauri Moreta: Takes first loss

    Moreta (1-1) took the loss Sunday against the Diamondbacks. He allowed an unearned run on a hit while striking out one over one-third of an inning.

    Moreta replaced Roansy Contreras to start the sixth inning, striking out Corbin Carroll before Christian Walker reached on a Ke'Bryan Hayes throwing error. Walker would score on Lourdes Gurriel's base hit, giving Arizona a 4-3 lead and eventually handing Moreta his first loss. Overall, the 27-year-old Moreta has been excellent for Pittsburgh. He still hasn't allowed an earned run since April 26, a span of 10.2 innings. He sports a 2.14 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 31:12 K:BB across 21 innings this season.

  • Pirates' Dauri Moreta: Gets save against Cardinals

    Moreta picked up the save in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Cardinals in 10 innings, walking one and striking out one in a scoreless inning.

    Moreta was tasked with getting the save after David Bednar worked the ninth inning against the Cardinals, and he got the job done. It's the first save of the season for Moreta in eight appearances. As long as Bednar is on the roster, it's unlikely Moreta will see many more save chances.

  • Reds' Dauri Moreta: Back from COVID-19 IL

    The Reds reinstated Moreta (illness) from the COVID-19-related injured list Wednesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Before he hit the shelf after apparently testing positive for the virus, Moreta had compiled a 7.09 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 29:9 K:BB across 26.2 innings out of the Cincinnati bullpen this season.
