The Pittsburgh Pirates will be without one of their starting pitchers. Left-hander Marco Gonzales was placed on the 15-day injured list with a left forearm muscle strain.

Gonzales started Saturday’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies and pitched well. In six innings, he allowed a pair of runs on six hits and three walks to go along with five strikeouts.
