|
ATLANTA -- Jack Taschner, on the disabled list because of left hamstring tightness, made his first rehab appearances with Double-A Altoona on Saturday night and allowed a run in his one inning against Reading. He gave up two hits while walking one and striking out one.

The left-handed reliever will pitch another inning for the Curve on Monday and then will be re-evaluated. He went on DL on May 20, retroactive to May 18.

Taschner had made 16 appearances for the Pirates, going 1-0 with a 6.23 ERA. He had 15 strikeouts and six walks in 17 1/3 innings, allowing 21 hits.

The 32-year-old signed with the Pirates over the winter as a Minor League free agent after spent half of last season with the Phillies. He previously pitched for the Giants, making 63 appearances in 2007 and 67 in 2008.
