Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Tuesday that George Kontos has been removed from his eighth-inning setup role.
Kontos holds a 4.58 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 17 2/3 innings this season. He hasn't pitched since Friday. "We're basically going to use the bullpen to get outs to get to [Felipe] Vazquez without anybody being anointed an eighth-inning guy," Hurdle said. "I don't see us naming an eighth-inning pitcher right now. You look at where the lineup's going to be. You look at the part of the lineup we're going to face." May 16 - 9:40 AM
