 ATLANTA (AP) -The Pittsburgh Pirates placed third baseman Jose Bautista on the 15-day disabled list and recalled reliever Salomon Torres from a rehab assignment Sunday.
Pittsburgh also purchased the contract of rookie infielder Don Kelly from Triple-A Indianapolis and designated reliever John Wasdin for assignment.
Bautista, who is hitting .258 with seven homers and 33 RBIs, needed stitches in his left hand after sliding into the spikes of Atlanta third baseman Chipper Jones in the Braves' 5-4 victory Saturday.
Jose Castillo started in Bautista's place Sunday.
The Pirates reinstated Torres from the DL after the right-hander was sidelined with right elbow inflammation. Torres has a team-high 12 saves, but Matt Capps, with nine, is now the Pittsburgh closer.
Wasdin went 1-1 with a 5.95 ERA in 19 2-3 innings.
