The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Reliever Nick Burdi has been placed on the 10-day injured list by the Pittsburgh Pirates with pain in his right biceps and elbow.

Burdi grabbed his arm in pain after a pitch in the seventh inning of Pittsburgh's 12-4 loss to Arizona on Monday.

Pittsburgh said Tuesday he had a magnetic resonance angiogram and is seeking a second opinion from Texas Rangers team physician Dr. Keith Meister.

Burdi has thrown just 10 innings in the majors since returning from Tommy John surgery in 2017.

Left-hander Steven Brault was recalled from Indianapolis, a day after he was optioned to the Triple-A team.
