Derrek Lee to the DL, Josh Harrison Recalled

The Pittsburgh Pirates have placed first baseman Derrek Lee on the 15-day disabled list with a bone fracture in his left wrist, and have recalled infielder Josh Harrison.  Lee’s move is retroactive to August 10th, which means he can return no earlier than August 25th.  In just five games with the Pirates, Lee had a .278 average and hit two homers, both coming in his first game with the team.  Harrison returns to the majors after hitting for a .263 average in 95 at-bats earlier this year.
