    Pittsburgh said Tuesday he had a magnetic resonance angiogram and is seeking a second opinion from Texas Rangers team physician Dr. Keith Meister.

    Burdi has thrown just 10 innings in the majors since returning from Tommy John surgery in 2017.

    Left-hander Steven Brault was recalled from Indianapolis, a day after he was optioned to the Triple-A team.
