The Pittsburgh Pirates selected the contract of right-handed reliever Tanner Anderson from Triple-A Indianapolis and placed infielder Sean Rodriguez on the 10-day disabled list.
Anderson DJ Moore Color Rush Jersey , a 25-year-old, will be available out of the bullpen Wednesday evening when the Pirates close out a three-game series with the New York Mets. Anderson is 1-1 with a 2.34 ERA over 24 appearances in Indianapolis with 24 strikeouts and six walks.
The Pirates said Rodriguez strained his right quad and backdated the move to Monday. Rodriguez has just two hits in his last 38 at-bats.
The move leaves the team without a backup middle infielder. Manager Clint Hurdle indicated that Josh Harrison would slide over to short if needed and David Freese could come off the bench to play second if necessary.
Pitcher A.J. Schugel (right shoulder discomfort) was moved to the 60-day DL to make room for Anderson on the 40-man roster.
