Pirates Place Henry Davis on Injured List With Right Hand Strain

Henry Davis, Pittsburgh Pirates

The Pittsburgh Pirates have placed Henry Davis on the 10-day injured list with a right hand strain prior to Monday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals.

This season with the Pirates, Davis has hit .213 with a .306 on-base percentage. He’s hit eight doubles, five home runs and has driven in 18 runs in 51 games.

Davis has fallen on hard times of late and is slashing a mere .125/.212/.205 with 28 strikeouts in 99 plate appearances dating back to July 22.

While he has been a catcher for the majority of his professional career, the Pirates have used Davis almost exclusively as a right fielder in the big leagues.

In a corresponding move, the Pirates have recalled infielder Vinny Capra from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Capra was briefly with the Pirates earlier this season and went hitless in four at-bats across two games. He drew a walk and scored a run.

With Triple-A Indianapolis this year, Capra has hit .326 with an .883 OPS in 42 games. He was acquired at the end of April from the Toronto Blue Jays for Tyler Heineman.
