Pirates to call up Burres, Jaramillo
The Pirates are expected to select the contract of left-handed pitcher Brian Burres and recall catcher Jason Jaramillo from Triple-A Indianapolis today as part of their September call-ups.
Burres was 5-9 with a 4.66 ERA in 23 starts at Indy. He struck out 95 and walked 45 in 129 1⁄3 innings.
Jaramillo was a member of the Pirates' opening day roster but was optioned to Indianapolis on April 14, where he hit .276 with two homers and 23 RBI in 46 games in Indy.
