The Pirates have sent Josh Harrison to the 10-day disabled list for a broken bone in his left hand. Harrison was hit by a pitch in the fifth inning of Saturday’s game against the Reds.

Harrison was slashing .272/.339/.432 on the year for Pittsburgh and was a member of this year’s All-Star team. While this shortage could have been devastating if the Pirates were in contention, at 4th place in the National League Central their hearts will go on for the time being.

In the 29-year old’s place, the Pirates have called up Chris Bostick from Triple-A Indianapolis.
