The Pittsburgh Pirates
placed outfielder Jose Tabata
on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a left oblique strain.
In a corresponding move, Pittsburgh recalled infielder Josh Harrison
from Class AAA Indianapolis.
The Pirates also purchased the contract of left-handed pitcher Mike Zagurski
from Indianapolis, transferred right-hander Jeff Karstens
from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL and sent righty Bryan Morris
to Class AAA.
Tabata's move to the DL was backdated to Saturday. He is batting .272 this season.
Karstens has right shoulder inflammation.
The Pirates face the Detroit Tigers on Monday. Justin Verlander
was scheduled to start for the Tigers. Harrison broke up a no-hitter against Verlander in the ninth inning last year.
