Gerut Placed On DL

ESPN reports that less than two weeks after acquiring Jody Gerut, the Pirates have placed him and his knee on the DL.

...The Post-Gazette is reporting this, too. Nate McLouth will move from AAA Indianapolis to Pittsburgh to take Gerut's place. McLouth bats left-handed, so he may have some kind of platoon arrangement with Mike Restovich until Gerut or Craig Wilson returns. Ryan Doumit may also get some extra playing time in Gerut's absence. Rob Mackowiak might also, although his health is also in question.

...Restovich is starting today. He just tripled, and the Pirates put up six runs in the first inning. Too bad this one isn't televised.
