The Pittsburgh Pirates placed catcher Russell Martin on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

The Montreal native was injured in the sixth inning of Friday's 1-0 loss to the Cardinals.

He complained about hip pain and was sent back to Pittsburgh for an MRI exam Saturday to see if the two ailments are connected.

Martin, 31, has a .242 batting average and .342 on-base percentage in 16 games this season with two home runs and 11 runs batted in.
