Bostick was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday.
Bostick was only up with the big-league club for four days, but he managed to log three appearances in that span. He failed to pick up a hit, however, so he'll head back to the minors to build off the solid .842 OPS he posted in 24 games prior to the callup.
Bostick was officially recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday, Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
As expected, Bostick was added to the Pirates roster ahead of Monday's series opener against the Dodgers. The 24-year-old was slashing .320/.347/.495 with 11 RBI and three stolen bases at Indy before being promoted. He'll serve as depth for a depleted Pittsburgh roster. Catcher Elias Diaz was optioned to the minors in a corresponding move.

This will be Bostick's first sniff of major-league action. The 24-year-old is off to a nice start at Indianapolis, slashing .320/.347/.495 with 11 RBI and three stolen bases. The utility man will provide a much needed boost to the Pirates bench, who currently has three non-everyday players batting below the Mendoza Line (Alen Hanson, John Jaso, and Phil Gosselin). A corresponding roster move should be announced once the move is made official.

The 23-year-old was acquired from the Phillies last year after he was designated for assignment. He's hitting well in spring, slashing .304/.467/.478 in 23 at-bats so far, but the Pirates are too deep at second base for Bostick to threaten the lineup, so he'll likely spend the year at Triple-A.
Bostick was exchanged for minor league catcher Taylor Gushue and cash considerations. The 23-year-old infielder was originally a 44th-round draft pick by the Athletics, but he exceeded expectations by showing an intriguing mix of pop and speed. His numbers dipped a good amount after being called up to Triple-A over the summer, but Bostick's .818 OPS with Double-A Harrisburg shows some promise for the future. Josh Harrison was designated for assignment to make room for Bostick on the 40-man roster.
