Schugel was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday. Schugel will take the roster spot of Tyler Glasnow (shoulder), who was placed on the 15-day DL in a corresponding move. During an earlier stint with the team, Schugel posted a 3.94 ERA and 1.10 WHIP over 48 innings of relief. Look for the right-hander to serve in long relief once more, though he could be considered for a spot start now that the Pirates are down to four primary rotation options on the active roster.
Schugel was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Stephen Nesbitt reports. This move corresponds with Tyler Glasnow getting recalled to start Saturday's game against the Phillies. Schugel posted a 3.94 ERA and 41 strikeouts in 48 innings, working in something of a long-relief role. He will serve as organizational bullpen depth over the rest of the season.
Schugel (1-2) went 2.2 innings in relief Thursday against the Marlins, but was credited with the loss after allowing one run on one hit and a walk. He struck out three. Schugel was pretty effective in the last two innings, and he retired the first seven batters he faced before allowing the game-winning RBI in the 12th inning. Schugel was pretty effective despite the loss, and he should remain a steady member of Pittsburgh's bullpen for the foreseeable future even with a 4.56 ERA on the year.
Schugel was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune reports. Schugel has already spent about a month with the Pirates this season but was sent back to Triple-A earlier in the month. He'll now return to the big league club to fill the spot of Ryan Vogelsong, who hit the DL on Tuesday due to facial fractures. Schugel figures to slot into a middle relief role for Pittsburgh, where he holds a 4.96 ERA across 11 appearances this season.
Schugel was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday, Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Schugel was a moderately reliable relief option in Pittsburgh, posting a 4.96 ERA and striking out 17 over 16.1 innings. With southpaw reliever Cory Luebke (hamstring) getting reinstated Sunday, however, there was one less roster spot to go around, and Schugel was ultimately dispensable.
