Perez on DL

Thanks to Greg S., who stopped by in my absence to report that Oliver Perez has been placed on the 15 day DL after he broke his toe while kicking a laundry cart. First Jose Bautista, who lost a big chunk of 2003 after breaking his hand on a garbage can, and now Perez. When will our Pirates learn that there's no way to win a fight with an inanimate object, and yet there are many ways to lose?

The Pirates have called up Nate McLouth to take Perez' place. I haven't yet read anything about how the Pirates plan to use McLouth, but hopefully he'll be used more in a Ryan-Doumit-before-interleague-play-ended type of way (playing most of the time) rather than in a J.R. House or J.J. Davis kind of way.
