Pittsburgh Pirates right-hander Evan Meek, who was designated for assignment by the club last week, has passed through waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A, according to the team's transaction page.

Meek was designated last Monday in a flurry of Pirates’ roster moves, including Pittsburgh’s recall of infielder Chase d’Arnaud and right-hander Bryan Morris and their call up of right-hander Rick VadenHurk.

Meek had a rough start to the season, allowing six runs through nine and two-thirds innings in April. He made three appearances for the Pirates between May 16 and July 24, but a majority of his time has been spent at the Triple-A level this season.

Over thirty-six appearances for Pittsburgh’s Triple-A affiliate, Meek has posted an ERA of 2.74 with 8.0 SO/9 and 5.1 BB/9. He maintained an ERA of 6.75 over twelve major league appearances.

Meek entered the season as one of the Pirates better-known relievers, as he represented the club in the 2010 All-Star game. That season Meek maintained an ERA of 2.14 over seventy appearances.
