The Pirates today reinstated reliever John Wasdin from the 15-day disabled list and will have him in their bullpen tomorrow against the Florida Marlins.
Wasdin, out since May 2 because of a sprained right thumb, made five rehabilitation starts for Class AAA Indianapolis with decidedly mixed results: He was 1-1 with a 5.97 ERA, a .297 opponents' batting average and nine home runs. But he also struck out 31 while walking none.
