  • Pirates' Roansy Contreras: Nothing left to prove at Triple-A

    Contreras gave up one run on three hits and zero walks while striking out nine in four innings Friday for Triple-A Indianapolis.

    It's pretty clear that Contreras belongs in the big leagues, especially considering the makeup of the Pirates rotation, and this may have been a dominant enough outing for it to be his last at Triple-A. The Pirates have been very careful with his innings so far this season, so he could pitch without restrictions the rest of the way.

  • Pirates' Roansy Contreras: Sent down following matinee

    Contreras was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis following the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Reds.

    Contreras picked up his third win of the season during Thursday's matinee by allowing a run on four hits and a walk while striking out seven in six innings. However, he'll head back to the minors after left-hander Eric Stout was recalled to provide an extra arm in the bullpen during the nightcap. Contreras has performed relatively well during his major-league tenure this year, so it seems likely that he'll be back with the Pirates soon.

  • Pirates' Roansy Contreras: Chased early in tough outing

    Contreras (2-2) allowed seven runs on five hits and two walks over 1.2 innings Friday, striking out one and taking a loss against Milwaukee.

    Contreras coughed up seven runs -- including three homers -- in a disastrous second inning that he failed to complete. His final pitch of the outing resulted in a three-run shot by Rowdy Tellez. Over his last five starts, the right-handed rookie has posted a brutal 6.53 ERA with a 17:13 K:BB. Contreras' season ERA is up to 4.09; it's the highest his ERA has been since he allowed two runs out of the bullpen in his season debut. The 22-year-old is projected to start in Cincinnati next week.

  • Pirates' Roansy Contreras: Five walks in no-decision

    Contreras allowed one run on four hits and five walks while striking out four in five innings. He did not factor into the decision in a 4-2 loss Sunday in Tampa Bay.

    Contreras struggled with his control in the second inning and walked four batters, including one with the bases loaded. He pitched around trouble the rest of the way and held the Rays scoreless over the final three frames. Sunday's start was fairly representative of Contreras' season, as the 22-year-old limited runs while pitching around walks. For the season he has a 2.76 ERA despite a 1.35 WHIP and 42:19 K:BB in 42.1 innings. His next start will likely be next weekend against Milwaukee.

  • Pirates' Roansy Contreras: Cruises to second win

    Contreras (2-1) picked up the win in Tuesday's 7-1 victory over the Cubs, giving up one run on four hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out three.

    The rookie didn't flash the dominance he's capable of, but Contreras didn't need to as he got staked to a 5-0 lead by the end of the third inning. He has yet to complete six innings in a start, which limits his fantasy upside in formats that value categories like quality starts, but since moving into the rotation in late May, Contreras has delivered a 2.73 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 28:11 K:BB through 29.2 innings.

  • Pirates' Roansy Contreras: Struggles again Wednesday

    Contreras allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits and three walks with two strikeouts in 4.1 innings versus the Cardinals on Wednesday. He did not factor in the decision.

    Despite a rough outing, Contreras exited with the game tied at 4-4. He's now surrendered eight runs (six earned) in nine innings across his last two starts after having not allowed more than two runs in any of his first six appearances. He's still at a reasonable 3.06 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 35:12 K:BB across 32.1 innings in eight outings (five starts) this year. He's projected for a more favorable home start versus the Cubs next week.

  • Pirates' Roansy Contreras: Coughs up four runs

    Contreras (1-1) yielded four runs (three earned) on eight hits and a walk over 4.2 innings Friday, striking out seven and taking a loss against Atlanta.

    Most of the damage against Contreras came from Dansby Swanson's two-run shot in the third inning. Atlanta later tacked on another run in each of the fourth and fifth frames. It was his first appearance allowing more than two runs and his ERA climbed to 2.57 through 28 frames. Contreras is projected to start in St. Louis next week.

  • Pirates' Roansy Contreras: One out shy of quality start

    Contreras allowed an unearned run on four hits and two walks while striking out eight in 5.2 innings during Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks. He didn't factor in the decision.

    Contreras was excellent through five innings, but a one-out Ketel Marte double, an error and a wild pitch allowed Arizona to get on the board first in the sixth. That left Contreras in line for a loss until Jack Suwinski walked it off for the Pirates with a two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth. The 22-year-old right-hander has given up three runs (two earned) in 15.2 innings over his last three starts, which is giving him a strong case to stay in the rotation. He's at a 1.93 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 26:8 K:BB through 23.1 innings in six outings (three starts) this year. In the likely event he gets another start, Contreras is in line to make his next appearance on the road in Atlanta next week.

  • Pirates' Roansy Contreras: Solid through five frames

    Contreras registered a no-decision during Sunday's 4-2 loss to San Diego, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk with three strikeouts in five innings.

    Contreras was able to escape a bases-loaded jam in the second inning but served up a Jurickson Profar two-run shot with two-out in the fifth to fall behind. The 22-year-old has impressed in two starts since returning from the minors, compiling a line of two earned runs on eight hits and three walks with eight strikeouts in 10 innings. If he sticks in the rotation, Contreras will likely take the mound against Arizona next weekend.

  • Pirates' Roansy Contreras: Covers five scoreless frames

    Contreras allowed three hits and two walks over five scoreless innings during Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Rockies in 10 innings. He had five strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.

    The 22-year-old was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis to start Monday's contest, and he immediately delivered a strong performance. Contreras opened the season on the big-league roster as a long reliever, and he had a 3.52 ERA over 7.2 innings before being sent to Indianapolis to get stretched out. The right-hander is now back in the majors and is getting the chance to prove he belongs in the starting rotation.

  • Pirates' Roansy Contreras: Picking up second start

    Contreras is listed as the Pirates' starting pitcher for Sunday's game in San Diego.

    Contreras will be rewarded with a second turn through the rotation after he blanked the Rockies over five innings and struck out five while allowing only five baserunners in his second career MLB start Tuesday. With Pittsburgh having demoted Bryse Wilson to Triple-A Indianapolis and with Mitch Keller moving to the bullpen for the Pirates' six-game week, Contreras looks secure as the team's No. 4 starter at the moment.

  • Pirates' Roansy Contreras: Starting Tuesday

    Contreras will start Tuesday at home against the Rockies, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

    The Pirates haven't officially confirmed their starter for Tuesday's game, but they have a gap in the rotation and Contreras was just recalled Sunday, so it seems clear that the job is his. In 10.2 career major-league innings, Contreras owns a 2.53 ERA, striking out 14 batters while walking just four. He recorded a 2.66 ERA and a 28.9 percent strikeout rate in five starts for Triple-A Indianapolis prior to his promotion.

  • Pirates' Roansy Contreras: Called up by Pirates

    Contreras was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Contreras made three relief appearances for the Pirates in April, and he posted a 3.52 ERA and 0.91 WHIP in 7.2 innings during that time. However, he's been building up as a starter in Indianapolis, and he's recorded a 2.66 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 20.1 innings over five minor-league starts. The Pirates' rotation is healthy but has had some struggles recently, so it seems likely that Contreras will join the rotation after working as a starter in the minors.

  • Pirates' Roansy Contreras: Builds up to five innings

    Contreras allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits and a walk while striking out four across 5.2 innings to take the loss with Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday.

    Contreras took on Toldeo and was tagged for two of his three runs in the first two innings. However, he still limited baserunners and most importantly built his pitch count up to 84. Contreras began the season in Pittsburgh but was optioned to Indianapolis with the intention of stretching him out to a starter's workload. Now that he's done so, a return to the majors doesn't seem too far off.

  • Pirates' Roansy Contreras: Sent down Thursday

    Contreras was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Contreras served as a long reliever for the Pirates early in the season, and he logged a 3.52 ERA and 0.91 WHIP while striking out in in 7.2 innings in three appearances. However, he'll head to the minors after right-hander Chase De Jong's contract was selected Thursday. Contreras has served mainly as a starter in the minors and should spend time in the rotation with Indianapolis.
