Pirates place Lonnie Chisenhall, Jordan Lyles on Injured List, select contract of Melky Cabrera
PITTSBURGH– Early season injuries will shelve a pair of the Pirates’ off season pickups.
Chisenhall, 30, is suffering from a broken hand, while Lyles, 28, is battling discomfort on his right side.
To replace Chisenhall, the Pirates selected the contract of OF Melky Cabrera to take his place on the active roster.
Cabrera, 34, signed a minor league deal with the Pirates this off season, and will now have a chance to claim some early season playing time.
