Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - The Pittsburgh Pirates have placed pitcher
Jeanmar Gomez on the 15-day disabled list because of strained right forearm.
Gomez left Sunday's game against Cincinnati after just one inning. He is 2-0
with a 3.07 ERA in 12 games, including seven starts, this season.
The Pirates added right-handers Jared Hughes and Ryan Reid to the major league
roster. Pittsburgh's bullpen was depleted Sunday when Gomez left and five
relievers combined for 10 shutout innings in a 5-4 victory over the Reds.
Hughes appeared in 13 games out of the bullpen for the Pirates earlier this
season and was 1-2 with a 4.61 ERA before being sent to the minors in May. He
allowed one run in 13 innings with Triple-A Indianapolis.
Reid had an ERA of 0.52 in 20 games for Indianapolis. The 28-year-old has
never appeared in the majors.
The Pirates made room for Reid on the 40-man roster by recalling pitcher Phil
Irwin from Indianapolis and placing him on the 60-day disabled list.
In addition, Pittsburgh also optioned outfielder Alex Presley to Indianapolis.
Presley was just recalled on May 31 and was 4-for-11 in three games.
