Pirates place Polanco on DL

The Pittsburgh Pirates placed OF Gregory Polanco (left hamstring strain) on the 10-day disabled list on Saturday. In a corresponding move, LHP Steven Brault was called up from Triple-A Indianapolis.

A big part of the reason why the Pirates are MLB's hottest team outside of the Astros & Dodgers? Pitching, because the Bucs lead the majors in ERA in July, with the pen really shining (MLB-best 1.57 ERA). Now that they're above .500 with Starling Marte back from his PED suspension and the lineup finally ready to fire on all cylinders, you can bury those Andrew McCutchen trade rumors.

Will Pirates buy or sell at trade deadline?
