The Pirates had until 5:00 p.m. ET to set their rosters for Opening Day, and after a series of moves, Pittsburgh's Opening Day 25-man roster shaped up.
Right-hander Chris Leroux was placed on the 60-Day disabled list due to a strained right pectoral muscle. Leroux sustained the injury during the Pirates 5-2 loss to the Phillies on Tuesday in Philadelphia. He is required to rest for 4-6 weeks. With placing Leroux on DL, a spot opened on the roster to add righty veteran Juan Cruz.
Right-hander A.J. Burnett was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 26 (eligible for reinstatement April 10), and Charlie Morton was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 29 (eligible for reinstatement April 13).
