Pirates recalled LHP Kyle Lobstein from Triple-A Indianapolis.

This is already the third time in 2016 that the 26-year-old southpaw has been shuttled up from Triple-A. He figures to continue yo-yo-ing between Indianapolis and Pittsburgh depending on when the Pirates need an additional arm in the bullpen, but there is no fantasy intrigue here.

Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune believes that Kyle Lobstein will start Tuesday's Grapefruit League opener against the Tigers.

Lobstein was acquired from those same Tigers for cash considerations in late December. He's on the outside looking in for a spot on the Opening Day roster, but could secure a swingman role in the bullpen with a strong showing in the spring.
