Cruz on Restricted List, Slaten Called Up.

RHP Juan Cruz was placed on the restricted list this morning so that he could return to his home in the Dominican Republic to attend a personal matter. Cruz is expected to return in time for this weekend’s games.

To take his place, the Pirates selected LHP Doug Slaten from AAA and added him to the roster. Slaten has been exceptional as Indianapolis’ closer this season with 2 wins, 8 saves and a 0.36 ERA in 25 1/3 IP.
