Jason Grilli placed on Bereavement List; Jeff Locke recalled

Published on May 20, 2012 by in Transactions

 

Jason Grilli now becomes the 2nd Pirates player to have to be placed on the Bereavement list this season as he will leave the team for at least three days after the death of his wife’s grandfather.

Jeff Locke has been recalled to take his place on the 25-man roster. Locke, 24, has a 3.02 ERA in his eight starts with AAA-Indianapolis. In 47 2/3 innings, he struck out 36 and walked 10.

Locke made four starts last year for the Pirates, in which he had a 6.48 ERA over 16 2/3 innings.

An interesting tidbit: With Locke now on the active roster, every single player involved in the Nate McLouth trade is currently in the Majors with the Pirates (Nate McLouth, Charlie Morton, Gorkys Hernandez, Jeff Locke)
