The Pittsburgh Pirates have placed right handed reliever Chris Leroux on the 15-day disabled list, and have recalled infielder Pedro Ciriaco. Leroux’s move is retroactive to July 28th. The Pirates were carrying 12 infielders and 13 relievers, so this move puts things back to normal. It also provides a backup shortstop for Ronny Cedeno, with Chase d’Arnaud on the disabled list (although Brandon Wood is starting at shortstop tonight).
The 25-man roster and the 40-man roster pages are updated.
