Pirates Sign Blaine Boyer, Brett Sinkbeil

The Pittsburgh Pirates have placed Ross Ohlendorf on the 15-day disabled list with a shoulder strain, and have recalled right handed pitcher Daniel McCutchen from Indianapolis.  My guess is that Jeff Karstens will take Ohlendorf’s place in the starting rotation while he is out, with McCutchen taking over as the long man in the bullpen.
