  • Pirates' Brennan Malone: Assigned to FCL

    Malone (lat) made an appearance for the Pirates' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate Friday, recording one out while surrendering three runs on one hit and three walks.

    Before he was shut down in late May with a sore right lat, Malone made his first three appearances of the season at Low-A Bradenton. The 20-year-old right-hander looks to be healthy again, but the Pirates apparently want him to shake the rust off in the FCL before having him return to Bradenton. His move to the FCL last week was termed as a demoted from Low-A rather than a rehab assignment.

  • Pirates' Brennan Malone: Reassigned to GCL Pirates

    Malone was reassigned to the GCL Pirates on Thursday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Malone began the season with Low-A Bradenton and gave up four unearned runs on four hits and five walks while striking out two in 3.2 innings. He missed time early in the year due to a finger injury and will now attempt to sort things out with the GCL Pirates in the near future.

  • Pirates' Brennan Malone: Moves past blister

    Malone (finger) has made two relief appearances for Low-A Bradenton this season, working two innings while giving up two unearned runs on three hits and one walk.

    Malone's season debut was delayed due to a blister on his pitching hand, but he didn't end up missing significant time. The 20-year-old righty could be stretched out for starting duty once the blister is further in the rear-view mirror.

  • Pirates' Brennan Malone: Delayed by blister

    Malone has yet to start for Low-A Bradenton due to a finger blister, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    It's a minor issue, so the 20-year-old's start to the season shouldn't be pushed back too much. Malone last pitched in 2019 at rookie ball, making six appearances.

  • Pirates' Brennan Malone: Picked up by Pirates

    Malone was traded from the Diamondbacks to the Pirates along with Liover Peguero and $250,000 in exchange for Starling Marte on Monday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    The 33rd overall pick in last year's draft, Malone has thrown just eight professional innings thus far in his career. He's touched 99 mph and has a pair of promising secondaries in his curveball and slider, as well as a usual changeup. He has mid-rotation upside but is still several years away from the big leagues.
