RHP Nick Kingham has been recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis and LHP Enny Romero has been designated for assignment. Kingham is expected to make his Major League debut with the Pirates today. He will be wearing uniform No. 49. 
In four starts with Indianapolis this season, Kingham went 2-1 with 1.59 ERA (22.2ip/4er). He gave up just one hit in 5.0ip while striking out 10 batters during his debut on 4/6 and was charged with two earned runs or less in all four starts. His most recent start was a loss to Charlotte last Sunday (5.2ip/2r/1er).
Kingham was Pittsburgh's fourth round selection in the 2010 First-Year Player Draft out of Sierra Vista High School in Las Vegas. During his first full minor league season with State College in 2011, he posted the lowest ERA among all Pirate farmhands (2.15). Kingham was a 2013 Florida State League mid-season All-Star and entered the 2014 campaign ranked by Baseball America as the club's No. 5 prospect. He underwent Tommy John surgery on 5/27/15 and missed a majority of the 2015 and 2016 campaigns. In 2017, Kingham posted a minor league career high in wins (10).
