  • Pirates' Jason Delay: Moves to 60-day IL

    The Pirates transferred Delay (knee) to the 60-day injured list Friday.

    Delay will give up his spot on the 40-man roster in order to make room for Daulton Jefferies, who was acquired in a trade with the Giants on Friday. Delay was already expected to be out until July after undergoing knee surgery in April, so his move to the 60-day IL has virtually no impact on his return timeline. He has resumed catching during bullpen sessions, but he still has a long way to go before returning to the Pirates' lineup.

  • Pirates' Jason Delay: Catches bullpen session

    Delay (knee) caught a bullpen session Wednesday, Andrew Destin of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    It would appear to be the first time he's done so since undergoing surgery in mid-April to repair the meniscus in his right knee. Delay is expected to miss most, if not all, of the rest of the first half as he recovers.

  • Pirates' Jason Delay: Undergoes knee surgery

    Delay recently underwent surgery to repair the meniscus in his right knee, Alex Stumpf of MLB.com reports.

    Delay is expected to be ready to resume baseball activities in six weeks and it figures to be several weeks after that before he might be ready to return to the Pirates. Pittsburgh is currently using Henry Davis and Joey Bart as its catching duo, but Yasmani Grandal (foot) recently began a rehab assignment.

  • Pirates' Jason Delay: Shut down from all activities

    Delay (knee) remains shut down from all baseball activities, Alex Stumpf of MLB.com reports.

    Delay has been out for the last week with right knee inflammation and appears to have made little-to-no progress. He's eligible for activation in mid-April, but clearly the catcher will not be ready at that time.

  • Pirates' Jason Delay: Limited progress in recovery

    Pirates general manager Ben Cherington said Sunday that nothing "particularly new" has changed with regard to where Delay stands in his recovery from right knee inflammation, Andrew Destin of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Delay was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday and doesn't seem to have made any notable progress in his recovery since. He looks set to spend more than the minimum 10 days on his shelf, and whenever he's ultimately activated, Delay could be optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis to play on a more frequent basis.

  • Pirates' Jason Delay: Hits IL with inflamed knee

    The Pirates placed Delay on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with right knee inflammation, Andrew Destin of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Delay's placement on the IL is retroactive to Monday, so he'll be eligible for activation as soon as April 11. However, because he still has three minor-league options remaining, Delay seems more likely to be headed for Triple-A Indianapolis once activated after the Pirates acquired fellow catcher Joey Bart from the Giants on Tuesday. Bart was added to the 26-man roster Wednesday in a corresponding move, and since he's a former top prospect with no options remaining, he'll likely move ahead of Delay on the organizational catching depth chart. In addition to Bart, the Pirates have 2021 No. 1 overall pick Henry Davis and veteran Yasmani Grandal (foot) -- who is on the IL while he recovers from plantar fasciitis -- ahead of Delay in the pecking order behind the dish.

  • Pirates' Jason Delay: Headed for IL

    The Pirates are expected to place Delay on the injured list Wednesday, Alex Stumpf of MLB.com reports.

    It's unclear what injury Delay might be dealing with, but more clarification will come once the Pirates make the move official. In a corresponding move, the Pirates acquired Joey Bart in a trade with the Giants on Tuesday. Bart could end up replacing Delay on a permanent basis as the backup to Henry Davis.

  • Pirates' Jason Delay: Recalled from Indianapolis

    The Pirates recalled Delay from Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday.

    After Pittsburgh traded Austin Hedges to the Rangers on Tuesday, Delay will come up from Triple-A to fill in as the Pirates' backup catcher. Delay is slashing .260/.328/.375 across 118 plate appearances in Pittsburgh this season.

  • Pirates' Jason Delay: Sent to Triple-A

    Delay was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday.

    The Pirates are handing the starting catcher job over to Endy Rodriguez, with Austin Hedges moving to the backup role. That means Delay will head back to Indianapolis rather than stick around as a third catcher.

  • Pirates' Jason Delay: Knocks in three

    Delay went 3-for-3 with a double and three RBI on Wednesday against the Dodgers.

    Delay delivered RBI hits in back-to-back innings, the highlight of which came in the seventh inning when he drove in two with a double. Though he's served primarily as the backup when Austin Hedges is healthy, Delay has at least one hit in each of his last five starts. Overall, he's hitting .368 across 42 plate appearances and has chipped in four runs scored, seven RBI and one home run.

  • Pirates' Jason Delay: Stuck in reserve role

    Delay is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers.

    Delay had a brief run as the Pirates' No. 1 catcher earlier this month while Austin Hedges was on the 7-day concussion injured list, but Delay has faded back into a reserve role since Hedges was activated about a week and a half ago. Hedges has now picked up seven of the last nine starts at catcher for Pittsburgh.

  • Pirates' Jason Delay: Getting rest Wednesday

    Delay is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros.

    Delay will be getting a breather after going 0-for-2 with a walk while catching all nine innings of Tuesday's 7-4 win. Tyler Heineman replaces Delay behind the dish for the series finale.

  • Pirates' Jason Delay: Contributes from bottom of order

    Delay went 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored Friday against the White Sox.

    Delay drew his third start of the season and hit ninth, though that didn't stop him from having a productive performance. He tallied his first multi-hit effort of the campaign, which was highlighted by an RBI knock in the fifth frame. So long as Austin Hedges (concussion) is sidelined, Delay figures to split time behind the dish with Tyler Heineman. Through 13 at-bats, Delay has delivered five hits with a home run, a double, two RBI and four runs scored.

  • Pirates' Jason Delay: Contract selected by PIT

    Delay had his contract selected by the Pirates on Thursday.

    Delay will open the 2023 season as the Pirates' backup catcher. He won the gig this spring over both Tyler Heineman and Kevin Plawecki.

  • Pirates' Jason Delay: To open as backup catcher

    Delay will open the 2023 season as the Pirates' backup catcher, Kevin Gorman of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review reports.

    The 28-year-old beat out both Tyler Heineman and Kevin Plawecki for the backup gig behind starter Austin Hedges. Delay slashed just .213/.265/.271 over his first 57 major-league games last season in Pittsburgh, and his minor-league stats aren't much better.

  • Pirates' Jason Delay: Removed from 40-man roster

    Delay cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

    Delay played in 57 games for Pittsburgh last season but won't retain his spot on the 40-man roster. It was the 27-year-old's first taste of the big leagues, and he had a .213/.265/.271 slash line with one home run, 11 RBI and 17 runs.

  • Pirates' Jason Delay: Sitting out Tuesday

    Delay isn't in the lineup Tuesday against the Cardinals.

    After recording hits in his last two games, Delay will sit out Tuesday in favor of Tyler Heineman, who will bat eighth. Delay and Heineman have traded off starts behind the plate most of the season, so it seems likely that Delay will get the start for Pittsburgh's final game Wednesday.
