Cedeno injures wrist, status uncertain


Ronny Cedeno will be re-examined Wednesday morning to determine if his left wrist was fractured by one of Johnny Cueto’s fastballs.

In the sixth inning, Cedeno was hit on the left wrist. Thinking his wrist was broken Cedeno slammed his batting helmet as he was examined by a trainer.

Cedeno remained in the game and made two putouts over the final three innings. His wrist was heavily wrapped after the game and he will be re-examined tomorrow.

“I hope it’s not broken, but we don’t know yet for sure,” Cedeno said.

Cedeno had the Pirates’ lone hit in the game against Cueto, a one-out single in the third inning. After being hit in the sixth, Cedeno was thrown out trying to steal second base.

— Right-hander Hayden Penn, who had been in extended spring training, was added to the roster at Triple-A Indianapolis and started last night’s game against Rochester. Penn pitched six innings and allowed three runs on eight hits and struck out six.

General manager Neal Huntington said Penn, who was a reliever during his brief stint with the Pirates in April, will remain in Indy’s starting rotation.
