PITTSBURGH (WKBN) – The Pittsburgh Pirates have promoted infielder Hoy Park to the big league roster ahead of Saturday’s game with the Philadelphia Phillies.
Park was acquired in a trade this past week from the New York Yankees for Clay Holmes.
Park has played 48 games in triple-A Wilkes-Barre hitting .327 with 10 home runs and 29 RBIs. He has appeared in one game with the Yankees this season, getting one at-bat.
The 25-year-old played three games with the Pirates’ triple-A affiliate Indianapolis.
To make room for Park, Pittsburgh sent infielder Jared Oliva to Indy.
