Pirates' Gift Ngoepe: Lands on minor-league DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngoepe was placed on the 7-day minor-league disabled list Thursday with a left hamstring strain.

It's unclear how long the injury will keep Ngoepe sidelined at this point, but he'll be eligible to return June 30 if he is ready. The 27-year-old has struggled since returning to Triple-A Indianapolis from the Pirates at the beginning of June; he's slashing .193/.281/.333 in 16 games (64 plate appearances).

Pirates' Gift Ngoepe: Shipped to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngoepe was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Wednesday, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Ngoepe was slashing just .222/.323/.296 across 54 at-bats (27 games) with the big club before being sent back to Indianapolis. He could see another opportunity with the Pirates later in the season should the team need an extra bench bat. A corresponding move should be announced before Friday's series opener against the Mets.

Pirates' Gift Ngoepe: Looking for answers at plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngoepe went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts Tuesday against the Dodgers.

He has 14 strikeouts in 34 plate appearances and has seen his slash line drop to .250/.382/.357. Ngoepe's calling card is his strong defense, but the lifetime .232 hitter in the minors is struggling at the plate.

Pirates' Gift Ngoepe: Another memorable night Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngoepe went 3-for-3 with two walks Friday against Miami.

Making his first major-league start, the African native nearly hit an opposite-field homer, legging out a triple off the base of the right-center field wall. Although Ngoepe's not known for his offense, his solid defensive skills could help him see more at-bats while he's hot.

Pirates' Gift Ngoepe: Makes history Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ngoepe singled in his first major-league at-bat Wednesday, going 1-for-2 with a walk against the Cubs.

His hit off Jon Lester was the first ever by a major leaguer born in South Africa. Ngoepe, who served as a second base replacement for Phil Gosselin, has primarily played shortstop in the minors. The fielding whiz holds a minor-league line of .232/.322/.347 in nine seasons.
