  • Pirates' Nick Mears: Picks up win

    Mears (1-0) allowed one hit in one-third of an inning of work en route to the win in Saturday's 8-6 victory over the Reds.

    Mears picked up the first decision of his career Saturday night, though he did concede an RBI double that tied the game before inducing a groundout from Nick Castellanos to end the frame. It's probably not how he dreamed of his first big-league win, but they all count.

  • Pirates' Nick Mears: Solid bullpen work

    Mears allowed one hit in two-thirds of an inning in Friday's 8-6 loss to Philadelphia. He struck out one batter.

    A wild pitch contributed to his third blown save with an inherited runner scoring, but Mears continues to show small signs of improvement -- he hasn't been scored on in 10 of his last 12 appearances. Manager Derek Shelton is using the 24-year-old and his 95.6 mph fastball in high-leverage situations and he could pick up an additional hold or two over the season's final week as he builds a case for 2022.

  • Pirates' Nick Mears: Recalled by Pirates

    Mears was recalled by the Pirates on Wednesday.

    Mears began the 2021 campaign with Triple-A Indianapolis after he was sent down in mid-March. He made four relief appearances in the minors and allowed six runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out seven in 3.2 innings. Mears should serve mainly as a low-leverage reliever in the majors.

  • Pirates' Nick Mears: Promoted to majors

    Mears was promoted from the alternate training site prior to Thursday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

    He has a 5.40 ERA, 2.70 WHIP and more walks (seven) than strikeouts (four) in 3.1 innings in the majors this year. While almost all the Pirates' high-leverage arms are injured, Mears still seems like a long shot to get late-inning work in close games.
