Again with the injuries that do not really make any sense.

Daniel McCutchen was called up prior to Thursday’s game against Washington to replace Joel Hanrahan, who was placed on the Bereavement List. McCutchen did not pitch in any of the three games he was on the active roster, but was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained oblique.

According to the Pirates, McCutchen suffered the injury during batting practice on Saturday.
