    • Pirates' Wade LeBlanc: Outrighted to Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      LeBlanc was outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday after the Pirates elected to decline his $1.25 million club option, MLB.com's Adam Berry reports. LeBlanc will be removed from the team's 40-man roster after appearing in a career-high 50 games in the majors this season. During those outings, he posted a 4.50 ERA and 1.19 WHIP while recording a 54:17 K:BB in 68 innings of relief.

    • Pirates' Wade LeBlanc: Reinstated from disabled list
      By RotoWire Staff

      LeBlanc (quadriceps) was activated from the 10-day DL on Friday. LeBlanc spent just under two weeks on the disabled list with a left quad strain, but looks ready for action following a couple of simulated games. The left-hander has posted a 4.99 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 61.1 innings of relief for the Pirates this season, and will slide back to his typical spot in the bullpen for this weekend's series against the Reds.

    • Pirates' Wade LeBlanc: Placed on irrevocable waivers
      By RotoWire Staff

      LeBlanc (quadriceps) was placed on irrevocable outright waivers Tuesday, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. This means any team can claim LeBlanc and assume the remaining money on his contract without giving the Pirates anything in return. Essentially, the Pirates wanted to clear a 40-man roster spot and see an opportunity to do so and clear LeBlanc's contract in a season where they are no longer realistically in the playoff race. He has a $1.25 million team option and a $50,000 buyout for 2018. Unlike Juan Nicasio, who was also placed on irrevocable outright waivers, LeBlanc happens to be dealing with a quadriceps injury, which complicates matters. He has a 4.99 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 48 strikeouts in 61.1 innings this season, so it seems unlikely that a team would claim him.

    • LeBlanc (quadriceps) will throw another simulated game Tuesday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. LeBlanc threw 45 pitches on Saturday and felt fine afterward. Assuming he has a similar reaction to Tuesday's session, expect the Pirates to schedule him for a rehab assignment in an effort to get him back on the field in early September.

LeBlanc threw approximately 45 pitches during Saturday's workout and said that he felt close to normal afterwards. The Pirates have yet to reveal a potential return date for LeBlanc, but a timeframe should begin to take shape as the intensity of his workouts increases.
