PITTSBURGH -- Closer Joel Hanrahan was reinstated from the bereavement list, as scheduled, and was back in the Pirates' bullpen for Sunday's finale against the Astros. However, Daniel McCutchen is not returning to Indianapolis. McCutchen, recalled from the Triple-A club to take Hanrahan's place on the active roster, instead was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique. McCutchen, who did not make an appearance since his Thursday recall, suffered the injury while taking batting practice prior to Saturday night's game.
Hanrahan got back in town Saturday from funeral services for his grandmother, who passed away Wednesday.
