NEW YORK -- The Pirates today designated for assignment reliever Vin Mazzaro in an official roster move to make room for starter Brandon Cumpton, who will pitch for the club at Citi Field today.
The club DFA’d Mazzaro once before this season, when he cleared waivers and was outrighted to Indianapolis before being recalled to the Pirates earlier this month. This time the same could happen, or he could elect free agency if he clears waivers.
Today’s game began at 1:10 p.m.
