The Pittsburgh Pirates have placed Jose Contreras on the 15-day disabled list with low back inflammation, and have recalled Bryan Morris to take his place. Morris was recently optioned to make room for Mike Zagurski, but is eligible to return early due to the DL placement for Contreras.

    Is terrible a legitimate injury? :)

      Sure – I think it’s called WHIP-lash.

    thank you!!!

    Please, no more Contreras – cut him when he comes off the DL – along with John McDonald.

    Contraras found out this afternoon that he got hurt yesterday and will likely need a 30 day rehab.

    I’m officially agreeing with the masses that Hurdle will only play vets. There is zero reason for Barmes to be out there over Mercer. Yes, I typed this after the double play and before the error.

    tonight’s game is maddening, gomez throws up a zero through 7 and I have to watch them make Porcello and his 6 ERA look like the 2nd coming of Bob Gibson and then Barmes ground into a DP and then commit an error in back to back innings, more Mercer please

    Any trip by Contreras to the DL is covered under Medicaid Part B, right?
