The Pittsburgh Pirates placed infielder Colin Moran on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a pisiform bone fracture in his left wrist.

Moran was hit in the hand by a pitch during Monday’s game at the Colorado Rockies and had to make an early exit.

Moran has already missed about a month of the season with a groin injury and sat out a few games in June with a right hand injury and lower back tightness. In 49 games this season, the sixth-year pro has batted .280 with four home runs and 23 RBIs, playing mostly at first base.

To fill the active roster spot, Pittsburgh recalled outfielder Jared Oliva from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Oliva has yet to appear for Pittsburgh in 2021. He saw six games of action in 2020, when he played left and center field and batted .188.
