DuRapau was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday.
DuRapau has a 7.24 ERA, 1.90 WHIP and 15 strikeouts in 11 MLB games this season. He will work as a low-leverage reliever going forward.
DuRapau was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday.
DuRapau's latest trip to the big leagues lasted just one day, as he surrendered four runs (one earned) on five hits and two walks while fanning three over three innings Monday night against the Reds. In an effort to keep the bullpen stocked with fresh arms, the Pirates have recalled Geoff Hartlieb in a corresponding move.
DuRapau was recalled by the Pirates on Monday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.
DuRapau has bounced between Pittsburgh and Triple-A Indianapolis this season, with drastically different results at each level. He owns a 2.21 ERA in 36.2 frames for Indianapolis but an 8.44 ERA in 10.2 innings for the Pirates, though his nearly identical xFIPs (4.06 and 4.04, respectively) indicate that he hasn't actually pitched all that differently. Jordan Lyles was traded to Milwaukee in a corresponding move.
The Pirates optioned DuRapau to Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday.
DuRapau tossed a perfect seven-pitch ninth inning to finish out the Pirates' 12-2 win over the Brewers on Saturday, but the solid relief outing won't be enough for him to stick around with Pittsburgh through the All-Star break. Instead, infielder Kevin Kramer will be summoned from Triple-A to fill out the 25th spot on the active roster with the Pirates desiring another bench bat for the series finale with Milwaukee.
DuRapau was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday.
The 27-year-old owns a 9.31 ERA in 9.2 innings of work in his first taste of big-league action this season. He's recorded a far better 1.93 ERA in 28 innings for Indianapolis.
DuRapau was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Wednesday.
DuRapau was sent back to the minors to free up a roster spot for Wednesday's starter, Mitch Keller. The 27-year-old DuRapau spent just two days with the big club, allowing three runs on three hits and a walk while recording a strikeout across one inning in his lone appearance.
DuRapau was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday.
DuRapau struggled during a stint with the Pirates earlier in the season, compiling a 7.27 ERA and 1.73 WHIP in 8.2 innings, so he'll likely be used in low-leverage relief situations during his time with the big club. Jordan Lyles (hamstring) was sent to the injured list in a corresponding move.
DuRapau was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday.
DuRapau was knocked around in his last relief appearance, allowing six runs (two earned) on three hits and a walk while recording just one out. As a result, he'll head to the minor leagues. Mitch Keller was recalled ahead of Monday's contest and will start the nightcap against the Reds.
DuRapau gave up six runs (three earned) on three hits and one walk while recording one out in an 11-7 loss to the Dodgers on Sunday. He also hit one batter.
He threw only 13 of 28 pitches for strikes. DuRapau has surrendered nine runs (six earned) in his last two innings after posting a 1.35 ERA in his first five outings covering 6.2 innings. The 27-year-old has seen his meteoric rise come back to earth in the last week. His recent performance has likely taken him out of the running for high-leverage situations.
DuRapau (0-1) took the loss against the Rockies on Wednesday by allowing three runs on three hits over two-thirds of an inning. He had one walk and one strikeout.
DuRapau was unable to complete the first inning, putting an immediate hole in Pittsburgh's plans with the opener. The 27-year-old allowed only one run on five hits over his first 6.2 innings with the Pirates, but saw his ERA balloon to 4.91 after Wednesday's outing.
DuRapau will start Wednesday's game against the Rockies, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.
DuRapau will serve as an opener for the Pirates for his second straight appearance after firing two scoreless innings Saturday against the Padres. The 27-year-old has pitched well since being called up with a 1.35 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 9:1 K:BB over 6.2 innings.
DuRapau allowed one hit and one walk in two scoreless innings Saturday, striking out four San Diego batters.
The righty served as Pittsburgh's first opener of the year, and after bouncing his first pitch in the dirt, he settled down and neutralized Padres hitters with an effective curveball. Although DuRapau was likely on a short leash after his recall from Triple-A Indianapolis, the 27-year-old has earned his spot in the bullpen and figures to stick in the majors -- provided his performance doesn't drop off. DuRapau has allowed just one run in 6.2 innings over five games.
Manager Clint Hurdle said DuRapau would serve as the Pirates' opening pitcher in Saturday's game against the Padres.
With neither Steven Brault nor Nick Kingham having distinguished himself as a back-end starter, the Pirates will experiment with an opener for the first time all season with the fifth spot in the rotation coming up Saturday. The 27-year-old hasn't covered more than two innings or 23 pitches in any of his four big-league appearances, so that likely represents the upper bound of his workload in his first career start. Brault and Kingham will be available on their normal rest Saturday and could both be summoned for multiple innings if Hurdle prefers not to commit to one of the two as a primary pitcher.
DuRapau threw a scoreless inning against Arizona on Monday, allowing one hit while striking out a pair of batters in a 9-3 loss.
He's allowed one earned run in 4.1 innings since his recall from Triple-A, striking out five batters. Although he was used in a blowout game Monday, he's been effective whenever called upon during his brief trial. DuRapau gave up just one run in 14.1 innings at Indianapolis (with an 18:5 K:BB) prior to his recall.
DuRapau pitched two innings against St. Louis on Thursday, allowing one run on three hits. He struck out one batter.
He threw in the low 90s and showed a sharp-breaking curveball. DuRapau entered Thursday's tilt with his team down 16-4 in a low-leverage situation. If he throws well over the next few days, he could move into higher-leverage spots, especially given the team's bullpen injuries and general ineffectiveness outside of Felipe Vazquez and Kyle Crick.
DuRapau is expected to be called up from Triple-A Indianapolis ahead of Thursday's game against the Cardinals, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
DuRapau has been lights out at Indianapolis this season with a 0.63 ERA, 0.70 WHIP and 18:5 K:BB through 14.1 innings. The 27-year-old will likely start out in a low-leverage role once the transaction is officially completed.
