PIT C duty split with Doumit DLed
The Pirates recalled Jaramillo when they placed
Ryan Doumit (concussion) on the disabled list.

Jaramillo is a better target - if you're truly desperate - for the PT. He's a switch-hitter who batted .252 last year. He has little pop but more potential than Kratz to make any sort of non-negative contribution.
