Nick Kingham Placed on Disabled List

The Indianapolis Indians announced that pitcher Nick Kingham has been placed on the 7-day disabled list and pitcher Adam Miller has taken his place on the active roster. Kingham was removed during the sixth inning of his last start due to elbow discomfort. There has not been an update to his condition as of yet and the Pirates announced yesterday that they will give an update when it is appropriate.

Kingham has been inconsistent this year, but was in the middle of a terrific outing on Wednesday afternoon when he felt pain in his elbow. In 31.1 innings this year, he has a 4.16 ERA and 32 strikeouts, which was the top mark in the International League at the time of his injury.

Miller was with Indianapolis earlier in the year, pitching three times in relief. He gave up two runs over 5.2 innings.
