Pirates pitcher Deolis Guerra was outrighted from the 40-man roster on Friday. Guerra was activated from the 60-day disabled list and immediately outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis. He was dreadful in his 10 appearances with the Pirates, posting a 6.48 ERA and 1.74 WHIP in 16 2/3 innings.
The Pirates promoted infielder Pedro Florimon from Triple-A on Wednesday, the team announced. To make room for Florimon, the team transferred pitcher Deolis Guerra from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL due to left knee inflammation.
The Pirates added reliever Joakim Soria to the active roster before Friday's game. Soria was acquired in a deal before the non-waiver trade deadline.

Soria was 3-1 with a 2.85 ERA and 23 saves for the Tigers.

The Pirates called up reliever Deolis Guerra from Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday. His first appearance in a game will be his MLB debut. Guerra is probably most recognized for being included in the 2008 trade that sent Johan Santana from the Twins to the Mets. Unfortunately, Guerra never really hit his stride in the minors until this season. He is 2-1 with a 1.23 ERA in 25 relief appearances for Indianapolis.
