Pirates optioned RHP Wilfredo Boscan to Triple-A Indianapolis.
The Giants ripped Boscan for seven runs in three-plus innings in a spot start on Tuesday. That horrific performance was enough to see him back to Triple-A. He will return to a 3.33 ERA and 33/4 K/BB ratio (48 2/3 innings) with Indianapolis. Kyle Lobstein earns the return call to the bigs with Boscan's demotion. Jun 22 - 4:28 PM

Date:

Wilfredo Boscan was demolished in a spot start against the Giants on Tuesday, allowing seven runs on six hits over just three-plus innings of work.

Boscan walked two and struck out two on the night. He cruised through the first three innings virtually unscathed, until the Giants erupted for seven runs while chasing him before he recorded an out in the fourth. Given how terrible he was on Tuesday, the Pirates may opt for a different option to start against the Dodgers on Sunday.
