Ryan Doumit


Doumit continues to be bothered by a hamstring injury that landed him on the disabled list for the latter half of April. The Pirates' catcher has been limited to pinch-hitting duty because of the injury. For the season, he is 6-for-25 (.240) with three doubles and two homers among his six hits.


Doumit was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, retroactive to April 12, with a strained left hamstring. The 25-year-old Pittsburgh catcher is hitting .200 with two homers and four RBIs in six games this season.


Doumit, who suffered a mild concussion after being hit by a foul tip while catching Saturday night, is expected to play Tuesday in Milwaukee. He wasn't penciled into the Pirates' lineup on Monday against Cincinnati, but the game was rained out before play began. Reportedly some dizziness has been the worst of Doumit's symptoms. The 24-year-old switch-hitting catcher is batting .253 with four homers and 26 RBI in 55 games with Pittsburgh.


Doumit went deep twice in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Houston Astros, notching the first and second home runs of his major league career. The Pirates' 24-year-old catcher, who made his debut earlier this season, is batting just .195 with 12 RBI and two stolen bases in 30 games. He's struck out 19 times in 82 at-bats.


Doumit has been recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis by the Pittsburgh Pirates, filling the roster spot of struggling third baseman Ty Wigginton, who was demoted to the minor league club on Saturday. The catcher/outfielder, one of the Pirates' top prospects, was batting .344 with 12 home runs and 35 RBI with Indianapolis this season.
