Michael Chavis was removed from the game against the Padres on Friday in the sixth inning. Tucupita Marcano hit for him in the top of the frame and recorded an infield single.
The Pirates say Chavis left the game with left forearm discomfort. Pirates manager Derek Shelton said after Wednesday’s game that Chavis was hit underneath his elbow guard that caused him some tingling/numbness. He remained in that game and was in the Pirates lineup for their contest in San Diego on Friday.
The Pirates already have two players who have played significant innings at first base on the IL (also Yoshi Tsutsugo and Daniel Vogelbach). For now, Chavis is day-to-day.
