PITTSBURGH -- The Pirates placed left-hander Jack Taschner on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring, a move that allows them to activate Brendan Donnelly for Thursday night's game against Milwaukee.
Taschner is 1-0 with a 6.23 ERA, six walks and 21 hits allowed in 17 1/3 innings. He gave up four runs in 1 2/3 innings Monday against the Phillies.
Donnelly hasn't pitched since April 27 because of a strained rib cage muscle in his left side. The right-hander is 2-0 with a 7.00 ERA this season.
