Pirates suspend reliever Keone Kela 2 games

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Pirates have suspended reliever Keone Kela two games for an unspecified violation of his contract.

The team made the announcement on Monday shortly before opening a four-game series with St. Louis. The suspension came after the team activated Kela from the 60-day injured list. Kela went on the injured list on May 6 with right shoulder discomfort. He completed a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis over the weekend, allowing five runs in 3 1/3 innings across four appearances with the Indians.

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said over the weekend the team anticipated getting Kela - acquired in a deal with the Texas Rangers at last year's trade deadline - back in the bullpen on Monday. Hurdle, however, demurred on Monday when asked about Kela's availability, saying only that the team was still in the process of evaluating Kela's status.
