An unexpected break didn’t stop the steady stream of pitchers to the injured list for the Pittsburgh Pirates. 

The team has placed opening day starter Joe Musgrove on the 10-day IL with what manager Derek Shelton called a right triceps issue. 

The Pirates scratched Musgrove before a start against Detroit with what Shelton called an ankle injury. Musgrove is 0-3 with a 6.75 ERA. 

He is the sixth Pittsburgh pitcher to be placed on the injured list this season.

The list includes starter Mitch Keller and relievers Nick Burdi, Clay Holmes, Michael Feliz and Kyle Crick.
