BY foxsports • July 27, 2011

The Pittsburgh Pirates have placed infielder Chase d'Arnaud on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right little finger.

Right-hander Chris Leroux was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Wednesday to take his spot on the roster.

While playing shortstop and third base, he has hit .225 in 25 games this season.

Leroux returns to Pittsburgh after being optioned to Indianapolis on Friday. He is 1-0 and has not allowed an earned run in five appearances with the Pirates.
