Aaron Pribanic and Jarek Cunningham to the DL

The Pittsburgh Pirates have placed Aaron Pribanic and Jarek Cunningham on the Double-A disabled list.

Pribanic was placed on the DL with a right shoulder injury. The right hander had a 7.36 ERA in 11 innings over three starts, with a 6:11 K/BB ratio.

Cunningham was placed on the DL with a left wrist injury, retroactive to April 20th. Cunningham has a .243/.317/.405 line in 37 at-bats this year. He’s been injured every year as a pro.

Greg Picart will replace Cunningham on the roster. Altoona has one spot open, with just 11 active pitchers. Indianapolis recently demoted left-hander Kris Johnson back to Altoona to make room for Jared Hughes.

    Well, that sucks.  Not real surprising about Pribanic, though.  He’s had trouble throwing strikes, which isn’t normal for him, so you have to think he hasn’t been healthy.
