Pirates Select Pitcher's Contract

The Pittsburgh Pirates are set to select Jerad Eickhoff's contract for Tuesday's contest against the Chicago Cubs.

With this news, Eickhoff is set to make his season debut. He spent the 2021 season with the New York Mets, where he sported a 0-2 record and 8.69 ERA in five games. This time around, he will be hoping to be more dependable when called upon by the Pirates.

Eickhoff has six years of major league experience on his resume. In 85 career games between the Phillies and Mets, he has a 21-32 record and 4.35 ERA. It will be intriguing to see how these stats change for him as a Pirate.
