Pirates place Tyler Glasnow on disabled list

Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

The Pirates placed Tyler Glasnow on the 15-day disabled list and recalled reliever A.J. Schugel on Sunday, the team announced.

Glasnow left his start Saturday after three-plus innings with right shoulder discomfort. On the same day, Chad Kuhl left his start in Indianapolis with right triceps discomfort.

The Pirates, of course, have two starters, Jeff Locke and Jon Niese, currently in their bullpen, which might not be of great comfort, and a couple perhaps more promising options in triple-A.

The news on Glasnow is obviously a blow. It seems to be more of a short-term thing, but that's just speculation.
