Default Re: Torres should be released.

Pirates promote Kuwata, place Torres on DL
Saturday, June 09, 2007

By Dejan Kovacevic, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

NEW YORK - The Pirates today promoted reliever Masumi Kuwata from Class AAA Indianapolis and placed reliever Salomon Torres on the 15-day disabled list because of inflammation in his right elbow.

Kuwata, 38, will be the first Japanese player in franchise history once he sees action. He is en route to Yankee Stadium and likely will not be available for the game this afternoon.

He missed most of the season to a severely sprained right ankle, sustained in spring training, then returned last week to pitch three scoreless outings.

Torres, who has had massive struggles in the past week, informed the team of his discomfort after his latest poor outing Friday, in which he hit a batter and gave up an RBI single with the only two men he faced.

More details in tomorrow's Post-Gazette.
