 NEW YORK (AP) -The Pittsburgh Pirates placed reliever Salomon Torres on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with inflammation in his right elbow and purchased the contract of right-hander Masumi Kuwata from Triple-A Indianapolis.
Torres recently lost his closer's job. He is 0-3 with a 5.14 ERA and 12 saves in 30 appearances.
The 39-year-old Kuwata was a longtime star in Japan, where he spent 20 years with the Yomiuri Giants and was teammates with New York Yankees left fielder Hideki Matsui.
The Pirates played the second game of a three-game interleague series Saturday against the Yankees.
Kuwata, a starter in Japan, will work out of Pittsburgh's bullpen. He missed the first two months of the season after injuring his ankle in a March 26 spring training collision with umpire Wally Bell.
Kuwata did not allow an earned run in three relief appearances with Indianapolis covering 4 1-3 innings.
