After 13 years in the minors Drew Maggi made it to the majors on Sunday. Unfortunately for Maggi his time in the majors is coming to an end as the Pirates have recalled Miguel Andujar to the active roster.
Maggi is now ticketed for Double-A Altoona however before he would leave the team the Pirates kept him around as the 27th man for their doubleheader against the Nationals.
The 33-year-old was given a chance to play for the team as they were winning in a blowout and he responded with his first big league hit. Later he would add a second hit, this time a double.
“Anything is possible. Never give up.”

Perhaps with this performance the Pirates may give Maggi another taste of the majors this season. Only time will tell.
