PITTSBURGH (92.7 The Fan) - The Pirates have optioned pitcher Nick Kingham to the Triple-A Indianapolis Indians. A release from the Pirates says outfielder/infielder Jose’ Osuna is “expected to be recalled” Tuesday for the White Sox game in Chicago.

Kingham is 2-0 after taking a perfect game into the 7th inning in his Major League debut against the Cardinals and picking up the win against the Brewers on Friday night.

Osuna has played one game for the Pirates in 2018. He was recalled for a doubleheader against the Tigers on April 25. He played the second game and hit a three-run homer in his first at bat.

Osuna was the International League’s player of the month for April.

Osuna has hit .359 with 12 doubles, three home runs and 18 RBI in 23 starts in Indianapolis.
