PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Pirates have put starting pitcher Kevin Correia on the 15-day disabled list with a strained oblique and recalled right-hander Chris Leroux from a rehabilitation assignment at Triple-A Indianapolis to fill the roster spot.

Correia is 12-11 with a 4.79 ERA this season but just 1-4 since the All-Star break. The right-hander surrendered six runs in six innings of a no-decision against Cincinnati on Friday.

Correia is the second Pittsburgh starter to go on the DL in the last week.
