Pirates Finalize 25-Man With a Series of Moves

Pirates Finalize 25-Man With a Series of Moves

The Pittsburgh Pirates made several moves to finalize their 25-man roster today. The team placed right-handed reliever Chris Leroux on the 60-day disabled list with a strained right pectoral muscle. The move means that:

-The Pirates will carry an extra bench spot, with Matt Hague, Yamaico Navarro, and Josh Harrison all making the team
-Jared Hughes will take the final bullpen spot
-With Leroux on the 60-day disabled list, a spot has been cleared on the 40-man roster for Juan Cruz.

The Pirates also officially placed A.J. Burnett and Charlie Morton on the 15-day disabled list.
