Pirates scratch James McDonald, place him on disabled list

USA TODAY Sports

The Pirates announced that they have scratched James McDonald from his start tonight and have placed him on the disabled list with shoulder discomfort. That should come as no surprise to anyone who's seen him pitch this year. Jeanmar Gomez will start. Also, Russell Martin has been scratched with a stiff neck. The Pirates have promoted Josh Harrison, who will take McDonald's spot on the 25-man roster.

Feel free to use this thread to discuss McDonald's injury and Harrison's promotion. Please use the gamethread for discussion of the game.
