Derrek LeeBy C. Trent Rosecrans

Remember when the Pirates were the feel-good story of the season?

Well, Pittsburgh's gone from charmed back to the same old Pirates since the All-Star break. Not only has the team lost 18 of 27 games since the break, one of their key deadline additions, first baseman Derrek Lee, was put on the disabled list with a bone fracture in his left wrist.

Lee's played in just five games for the Pirates, going 5 for 18 with two homers and a triple.

Lee was hit in the hand by former Cubs teammate Carlos Marmol on Aug. 3 and missed four games before returning for two more. He missed the team's last two games and after trying to take some swings before Friday's game, he had an CT scan that revealed the fractured bone.

Pittsburgh recalled infielder Josh Harrison from Triple-A Indianapolis.

The Pirates were only renting D. Lee until end of season, so no big loss, as he will be elsewhere in 2012.  The post-All-Star Bucs have bigger problems than loss of D. Lee - not a .300 hitter on the team and a fading pitching staff.  A .500 finish looks dim.
