Pittsburgh Pirates Closer To Miss Time

The Pittsburgh Pirates have placed David Bednar on the 15-day injured list because of back inflammation.

Bednar has had a career year with the Pirates this season, and the truth is in his stats. The young closer sports a 3-4 record to go along with a career-high 17 saves. With that, he appeared in his first All-Star game, so overall, it's been a season to remember for him. Yet, it now will have to be put on pause because of this injury.

Here's to hoping that Bednar can return to the mound as soon as this 15-day stint on the injured list passes.
