      By RotoWire Staff

      Barbato was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday. Barbato will return to the the Pirates as bullpen depth after the team placed both George Kontos (groin) and Joaquin Benoit (knee) on the disabled list. In 22.1 innings with the Pirates this season, Barbato has an ERA of 4.84 with 17 strikeouts -- not great numbers but an improvement on the 7.62 ERA in 13.0 innings he had with the Yankees before being traded to the Bucs in April.

    • Pirates' Johnny Barbato: Shipped back to minors
      By RotoWire Staff

      Barbato was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports. Barbato will head back to Indianapolis after getting tagged for three runs in Wednesday's extra-innings loss to the Orioles. The Pirates' bullpen has given the team 9.1 innings of work over the last two games, so Barbato will be shuttled back to the minors in order to bring in a fresh bullpen arm, Dovydas Neverauskas. The 24-year-old could see another call-up later in the year should the Pirates need another arm.

    • Pirates' Johnny Barbato: Struggling as of late
      By RotoWire Staff

      Barbato is in the middle of a rough stretch, allowing nine hits and five runs over six innings in his last four appearances. It's tough to call Barbato's last four games a cold streak, mostly because the whole season has been a struggle for him. Overall, he's allowed 18 hits and 11 walks in 19.1 innings. What makes his last four games exceptionally tough are the runs he's giving up. Prior to these last several games, he had only given up four runs in 13.1 innings, giving him an ERA of 2.70, but the poor showings have spiked it up to 4.19. He's already spent some of the season at Triple-A Indianapolis, and a trip back down might be in the works if Antonio Bastardo (quadriceps) returns from the disabled list later this week like he's projected to.
