Pirates Place Evan Meek On DL, To Promote Danny Moskos

Pirates reliever Evan Meek is heading to the DL for a couple weeks, which is probably a good idea - he has been prone to weird blowups and losses of velocity this year, and it will be good to give him a couple weeks off to get his shoulder back in shape.

The Pirates apparently will recall Danny Moskos to take his place on the roster. Moskos was the Pirates' first-round pick in 2007, and he has, perhaps unfairly, taken a beating by fans who wanted the Pirates to select Matt Wieters (or, later, Jason Heyward), as if it's Moskos' fault that the Pirates chose to take a potential reliever at the top of the first round. Anyway, Moskos played horribly down the stretch at Indianapolis last year, but is off to a good start in 2011. The Pirates have gotten great work so far out of Joel Hanrahan, Chris Resop and Jose Veras, so Moskos won't have to pitch in tough situations. He will apparently be active tonight against the Rockies.
