Pirates put Ohlendorf on 15-day disabled list

| Saturday, April 9, 2011

The Pirates today put right-hander Ross Ohlendorf on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right shoulder. Righty Daniel McCutvchen was called up from Triple-A Indianapolis.

McCutchen will work out of the bullpen as a long reliever. Jeff Karstens, who tossed 3 1/3 scoreless innings Friday in the Pirates' 4-3, 14-inning victory, will move into the starting rotation.

Ohlendorf pitched just 2 2/3 innings last night before leaving due to shoulder pain. When Carlos Gonzalez hit a fly ball, Ohlendorf immediately walked off the mound and gestured toward the duguout. He talked briefly with manager Clint Hurdle and trainer Brad Henderson, then left the field.

Ohlendorf sat out the final fiveweeks of the 2010 season due to soreness in the same area of his right shoulder.
