The Pirates placed INF Phillip Evans on the 10-day injured list Thursday.
Evans exited Wednesday’s game against the Reds early with a left hamstring strain. He has no timetable for a return and will miss at least the next ten days. Will Craig was recalled in a corresponding move and should see additional playing time while Phillips is sidelined.
Phillip Evans seemed to pull up slightly at second base after a base-hit from teammate Gregory Polanco. Adam Frazier pinch-ran for Evans who has now left the game.
With only four infielders on the major league roster, the Pirates will have to call up someone if Evans does miss any time. Both Ke'Bryan Hayes and Collin Moran seem close to returning, but it's unclear if they can immediately slot into an every-day role at third or first base respectively. This is certainly a situation to monitor closely over the next 24 hours.
