Pirates' Wade LeBlanc: Reinstated from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Wade LeBlanc: To throw second simulated game Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Wade LeBlanc: Throws simulated game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc (quad) threw a simulated game Saturday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

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.

Pirates' Wade LeBlanc: Heads to disabled list Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc was put on the 10-day disabled list prior to Friday's game against the Cardinals with a left quad strain.

LeBlanc allowed four runs off four hits and a pair of walks during an inning of work Thursday against the Cardinals, and will go on the DL following one of his worst outings of the season. There doesn't appear to be a concrete timetable for the left-hander as of yet, but he will be eligible to return for the beginning of the series against Chicago on Aug. 28. In a corresponding move, the Pirates recalled reliever Steven Brault from Triple-A Indianapolis.
