Joe Beimel to the DL, Danny Moskos is Back

Joe Beimel has been placed on the DL and will be having an MRI on his sore left elbow according to multiple media outlets. With this move the Pirates recalled Daniel Moskos back from Indy to take over the left handed specialist role. Moskos was used very sparingly his first time up, but with no competition to face lefties he should see an increase in his work this time out.

Moskos has split time between Indy and Pittsburgh so he really hasn't been used all that much this season. He has just nine appearances in Triple A, giving up four runs in 11.2 innings and averaging ten hits per nine innings pitched. He has given up two hits in 4.2 innings over the course of his five appearances at the Major League level, but again was used extremely sparingly.
