Keone Kela Placed on Injured List; JB Shuck Clears Waivers

After Wednesday’s game, the Pittsburgh Pirates placed right-handed reliever Keone Kela on the 10-day injured list. They won’t make a corresponding move until tomorrow. The move has been made retroactive to May 6th. He left Saturday’s game early due to right shoulder discomfort. Kela has a 4.63 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP in 11.2 innings over 14 appearances this season.

The Pirates also announced that outfielder JB Shuck has cleared waivers and has been sent outright to Indianapolis. Shuck hit .213/.339/.255 in 27 games before he was designated for assignment on May 4th to make room on the 40-man roster for Tyler Lyons.
