Bednar was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right oblique strain Tuesday.

Bednar was unavailable for Sunday's series finale against the Nationals due to a side issue, and he'll require a stint on the injured list after he was diagnosed with a right oblique strain. With just under three weeks remaining in the regular season, it's not clear whether he'll have enough time to return to game action in 2021. Chris Stratton will likely take over as Pittsburgh's closer while Bednar is sidelined.
