PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pirates on Monday placed catcher Ryan Doumit (left ankle sprain) and infielder Steve Pearce (right calf strain) on the 15-day disabled list.

Pittsburgh also transferred pitcher Ross Ohlendorf from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list, and purchased the contracts of catcher Dusty Brown and infielder Josh Harrison from Triple-A Indianapolis.

In 93 at-bats, Doumit has four home runs and 15 RBIs, while Pearce is hitting .291 with 10 RBIs in just 55 at-bats.

Brown hit .263 with six homers in 30 games for Indianapolis. And Harrison went 5-for-5 at Pawtucket on Saturday, and is fifth in the International League with a .321 average.

Doumit had to leave Sunday’s 3-2 loss to the Cubs in Chicago in the second inning. The ankle injury occurred on a collision at home plate with Chicago’s Carlos Pena. He was replaced by Chris Snyder.

Doumit left Wrigley Field with the help of crutches and a walking boot.

The Pirates open up a series with the Mets Monday night in New York.
