Doumit to rejoin Pirates on Friday
Ryan Doumit has left his Triple-A rehab assignment and will join the Pirates for their Friday night game in Philadelphia. Doumit is expected to be activated from the disabled list as well.
Initially, Doumit was not expected to come off the DL until the Pirates’ first game after the All-Star break. However, after playing in front of GM Neal Huntington and meeting with him after Thursday’s game, Doumit left the Indians to join the Pirates earlier than expected.
After an 0-for-20 start in his rehab, Doumit went 2-for-4 on Thursday.
It is not known who will be optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis — Robinzon Diaz or Jason Jaramillo – once Doumit is activated.
