Drew Maggi, a 33-year-old infielder, arrived in Pittsburgh about 7 p.m. after being called up from Double-A Altoona by the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Maggi was chosen when outfielder Bryan Reynolds was placed on the bereavement list. To make room on the 40-man roster, first baseman Ji-Man Choi was transferred to the 60-day injured list with a left Achilles strain.

The Pirates won 2-0 on Sunday to complete a four-game series sweep over the Cincinnati Reds, although Maggi did not play.

Maggi has played 1,155 minor league games over the course of 13 minor league seasons. He was drafted by the Minnesota Twins on September 18, 2021, although he never played in a game.

This season, Maggi has six hits in 31 at-bats (.194) and three RBIs with Altoona.

Since being taken in the 15th round (No. 447 overall) out of Arizona State in 2010, he has a career.254 average with 978 hits, 45 home runs, 354 RBIs, and 222 stolen bases in the minors.

Altoona manager Callix Crabbe confirmed Maggi's recall in a video sent to Twitter by the Pirates.

"It is with great pleasure that I get to promote my first person to the major leagues, someone who is tremendously important to this group and exemplifies grit," Crabbe said in the video.

Maggi, who was in tears in his locker stall, was met with praise and hugs from teammates.

While Maggi was not in the Pirates' starting lineup against the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday, his first MLB appearance could be on the way.
