The Pittsburgh Pirates have added right-handed pitcher Jhan Marinez to the 25-man roster and placed right-handed pitcher Josh Lindblom on the 10-day disabled list with left side discomfort. Marinez was picked up off waivers from the Milwaukee Brewers last night, after they designated him for assignment on Monday.
Marinez last pitched six days ago, when he allowed one run on six hits over 2.2 innings. He faced the Pirates back on May 5th and retired the side in order in his only inning of work. On the season, the 28-year-old has a 5.40 ERA in 16.2 innings over 15 appearances, allowing 23 hits, 11 walks and he has 14 strikeouts.
Lindblom has made four appearances for the Pirates, posting a 7.84 ERA and a 2.03 WHIP over 10.1 innings. He threw 2.1 innings last night.
