Kyle Crick rejoins Pirates bullpen in Detroit

Pirates reliever Kyle Crick exits the game after loading the bases during the eighth inning against the Braves Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2018, at PNC Park.

The Pittsburgh Pirates activated relief pitcher Kyle Crick to the roster Tuesday after he spent 11 days on the 10-day injured list with right triceps tightness.

Crick, who allowed no runs, hits or walks in two innings before being placed in the injured list, could help relieve some issues in the Pirates bullpen as the team starts a two-game series in Detroit. Rich Rodriguez has allowed four home runs and compiled a 6.75 ERA and Keone Kela has given up three homers with a 7.94 ERA.

To make room for Crick, the Pirates optioned infielder Kevin Kramer to Indianapolis.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
