The Pirates placed Tyler Yates (right elbow inflammation) on the 15-day disabled list Sunday and recalled left-handed pitcher Tom Gorzelanny from Triple-A Indianapolis. Gorzelanny was 1-1 with 3.98 ERA with 36 strikeouts and 16 walks in 40.2 innings.
Also the Pirates have acquired right-handed pitcher Randy Newsom from the Cleveland Indians for future considerations (cash or personnel). Newsom will be assigned to Double-A Altoona, which will merely require walking across the field today, as Double-A Akron is playing in Altoona this weekend.
