De Jong has been diagnosed with a lumbar spine muscle strain, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Blows save chance
De Jong allowed three earned runs on four hits to blow the save Wednesday against the Reds.
De Jong entered the game with a three-run lead, but he served up back-to-back homers to blow the save chance. He's been effective for long stretches of the season but has a 5.27 ERA and 1.61 WHIP across 13.2 innings in September. He isn't likely to see save additional save chances with David Bednar back from the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Chase De Jong: First career save
De Jong allowed two hits with no strikeouts or walks across 1.2 innings to earn the save Tuesday against the Brewers.
De Jong was shaky in the final frame, allowing a double and a single to the first two batters he faced. However, he induced a double play to escape the jam, end the game and tally his first career save. Wil Crowe is still the likeliest reliever to pick up save chances while David Bednar (back) is sidelined, but Crowe took the loss after serving up two homers Monday so was likely unavailable. De Jong has only a 46:20 K:BB across 55.1 innings for the season, but he has maintained a 1.95 ERA and 0.96 WHIP.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Chase De Jong: Four hitless innings in relief
De Jong allowed just one walk while striking out one over four hitless, scoreless innings in Tuesday's 5-3 loss against the Red Sox.
De Jong entered Tuesday's game after Mitch Keller left after the second inning due to shoulder fatigue. The 28-year-old held Boston hitless through four innings and only surrendered one free pass. The strong effort is in line with his season-long performance as he maintains a 2.33 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in 46.1 innings. It is unlikely Pittsburgh moves him back into the rotation given his success thus far in the bullpen, but the situation is worth monitoring if Keller is forced to the IL.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Chase De Jong: Activated from injured list
De Jong (knee) was activated from the injured list Tuesday.
De Jong wound up missing only one more day than the minimum 15 days he was required to sit out, and he will be available moving forward. De Jong is having easily the best season of his career, posting a 2.06 ERA and 1.06 WHIP in 35.0 innings over 21 appearances out of Pittsburgh's bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Chase De Jong: Could return after minimal IL stint
Pirates director of sports medicine said Thursday that De Jong (knee) could return following a minimal stay on the 15-day IL, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
De Jong landed on the injured list with left knee tendinitis July 17 but is slated to throw live BP in the coming days. Assuming he feels good after facing hitters, the Pirates hope the right-hander will be able to return to action early next week.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Chase De Jong: Sidelined with knee tendinitis
The Pirates placed De Jong on the 15-day injured list Sunday with left knee tendinitis, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
De Jong is experiencing discomfort in the same knee that he had surgically repaired last July, so he could be at risk of spending more than the minimum amount of time on the IL. The Pirates called up their starting pitcher for Sunday's game against the Rockies, Bryse Wilson, from Triple-A Indianapolis to take over the active roster spot of De Jong, who has submitted a 2.06 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 28:12 K:BB across 35 innings out of the Pittsburgh bullpen this season....

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Contract selected by Pirates
De Jong's contract was selected by the Pirates on Thursday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
De Jong missed the end of the 2021 season after undergoing knee surgery, but he was healthy for most of spring training. He's made three appearances (two starts) at Triple-A Indianapolis this year and has posted a 2.08 ERA, 19:5 K:BB and 0.92 WHIP in 13 innings and will be rewarded with a major-league roster spot after Roansy Contreras was sent down Thursday....

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Cleared for spring debut
De Jong (knee) is scheduled to pitch in relief in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports.
De Jong, who elected free agency in the offseason only to re-sign with the Pirates on a minor-league deal last week, appears to be back to full health at spring training after finishing the 2021 campaign on the 60-day injured list after undergoing left knee surgery in July. He'll be attending big-league camp as a non-roster invitee and will get the chance to compete for a rotation spot or long-relief role with the big club, though it's more likely he opens the campaign at Triple-A Indianapolis....

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Outrighted off 40-man roster
De Jong (knee) cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday.
De Jong struggled to a 5.77 ERA in nine starts this season, striking out just 19.9 percent of opposing batters while keeping the ball on the ground at a very low 30.1 percent clip. He suffered a season-ending knee injury in July and eventually underwent surgery. Whether or not he'll be up to full speed by the start of spring training is not yet clear, but he'll face an uphill battle to make the Opening Day roster regardless of his health now that he's off the 40-man roster....

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Transferred to 60-day IL
De Jong (knee) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Jake Crouse of MLB.com reports.
De Jong underwent season-ending surgery on the cartilage in his left knee last week, so his move to the 60-day IL is simply procedural. The transaction will make room on the 40-man roster for Steven Brault (lat), who was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Chase De Jong: Undergoes season-ending surgery
De Jong underwent surgery on the cartilage in his left knee Tuesday, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.
De Jong was sent for an MRI last week after he was placed on the 10-day IL with left knee inflammation, and he'll face a five-month recovery timetable following his procedure. The right-hander made a career-high nine starts in the majors this year and recorded a 5.77 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 43.2 innings. De Jong will now shift his attention toward getting ready for spring training in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Chase De Jong: Gets MRI on knee
Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that De Jong (knee) underwent an MRI after being placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.
Tomczyk didn't reveal the results of the MRI, but the fact that De Jong was sent in for further examinations implies that the Pirates had some level of concern he was dealing with something more significant than left knee inflammation. De Jong will be eligible to return from the IL before the end of the month, but the Pirates likely won't have a clear idea of when he might be ready for activation until he starts throwing again....
