Rangers designated RHP Stolmy Pimentel for assignment.

Pimentel had a 3.97 ERA in 11 1/3 innings of relief this year. He was DFA'd to make room for Sam Freeman on the active roster.
May 13 - 7:13 PM

Rangers claimed RHP Stolmy Pimentel off waivers from the Pirates.

With the troubles that the Rangers have had in their bullpen, there's a good chance that Pimentel sticks and could eventually work his way into a setup role. It's a nice boost to the fantasy value of the hard-throwing right-hander.
Apr 11 - 2:50 PM

Pirates designated RHP Stolmy Pimentel for assignment.

Pimentel holds a 4.50 ERA with over a strikeout per inning over 42 big league relief frames. There's a chance someone might claim him.
Apr 5 - 3:36 PM

Stolmy Pimentel got the start against the Braves on Sunday and threw two scoreless innings.

With Jeff Locke, Radhames Liz and Arquimedes Caminero all also out of options and likely in line for bullpen spots, Pimentel might find himself on waivers later this week. He'd almost certainly be picked up by a team looking for an arm with upside, but the Pirates have enough depth that they can afford to move on. The rest of their options are all better bets to help the team this year.
Mar 29 - 5:31 PM

Stolmy Pimentel gave up two runs in an inning of relief Thursday against the Orioles.

Pimentel, who ran out of options in 2013, would have been claimed on waivers last August, but he instead opted to go on the disabled list, allowing the Pirates to keep him. The reward figured to be a chance to compete for a rotation spot this spring. However, he's never factored into that mix behind Vance Worley and Jeff Locke. The Pirates have to decide whether to keep him as a reliever -- a tougher call with Locke also out of options and seemingly destined for the pen -- or to let his strong arm make his way elsewhere. He hasn't helped his cause by giving up five runs in five innings this spring.
Mar 19 - 5:40 PM

Pirates activated RHP Stolmy Pimentel from the 15-day disabled list.

Pimentel missed a little over two weeks with a sprained right ankle. He'll be back in middle relief for the Pirates' three-game series at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.

Stolmy Pimentel (ankle) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Altoona on Thursday.

Pimentel should be ready to go when his 15 days are up on August 29, though the Pirates might elect to wait until rosters expand to activate him. He's been out with a sprained right ankle.

Stolmy Pimentel (ankle) threw a bullpen session Sunday.

Pimentel was placed on the disabled list on Friday with a sprained right ankle. He should be ready to go when his 15 days are up, though the Pirates might elect to wait until rosters expand to activate him.

Pirates placed RHP Stolmy Pimentel on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 14, with a sprained right ankle.

Pimentel says he hurt the ankle while throwing a pitch during Wednesday's appearance, but it could be a phantom injury just to create a spot on the roster for John Axford. He'll likely be held out until September 1.

Stolmy Pimentel will be placed on the disabled list on Friday with lower body soreness.

It was initially reported that he would be designated for assignment in order to free up a 40-man roster spot for John Axford, but the Pirates have designated Matt Hague instead. It's debatable as to whether Pimentel is actually injured, as Pittsburgh seems to have created an ailment in order to clear a 25-man roster spot. He should be activated on September 1.

Pirates designated RHP Stolmy Pimentel for assignment.

The move clears a spot for the newly-claimed John Axford on the active roster. Pimentel has compiled a 5.40 ERA and 37/16 K/BB ratio over 31 2/3 innings this season at the major league level. He figures to draw interest on waivers.
Thu, Aug 14, 2014 04:48:00 PM

Pirates activated RHP Stolmy Pimentel from the 15-day disabled list.

Pimentel missed over a month of action with inflammation in his pitching shoulder. All six of the right-hander's appearances this season in the majors have been in relief, but he could conceivably be an option to stretch out and fill in for the injured Francisco Liriano (oblique).
Wed, Jun 11, 2014 03:17:00 PM

Stolmy Pimentel (shoulder) hurled three scoreless innings during a minor league rehab assignment at Double-A Altoona on Friday.

Pimentel allowed just three hits and a walk while striking out five. He's likely to make at least one more rehab appearance, but could be ready to rejoin the Pirates at some point next week.
Sat, Jun 7, 2014 08:38:00 AM

Stolmy Pimentel (shoulder) threw another successful bullpen session on Monday.

Pimentel will be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment if he makes it through one final bullpen session later this week without experiencing any discomfort in his shoulder. The 24-year-old righty is currently on track to return to the Pirates' bullpen in early June. He owns a 2.61 ERA and 8.7 K/9 in 20 2/3 career major league frames.
