PITTSBURGH (AP) Right-hander Arqiumedes Caminero was placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Pittsburgh Pirates, a day after he was ejected for hitting two Arizona hitters on the head with pitches.

Left-hander Tony Watson was placed on the paternity list Wednesday, and left-hander Kyle Lobstein and right-hander Rob Scahill were recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Caminero, who has a left quadriceps strain, hit Jean Segura on the helmet in the seventh inning, then hit Nick Ahmed in the chin during the eighth and was tossed by plate umpire Larry Vanover.

Vanover had warned both benches after the Diamondbacks' Evan Marshall hit David Freese on the left shoulder in the seventh.
