Pirates starter Jeff Karstens felt pain in his right shoulder during his throwing program today. As a result, the Pirates have shut him down, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review’s Travis Sawchik. Karstens has not thrown a pitch this season due to the shoulder injury, but was expected to return in early June.

Karstens finished 2012 with a 3.97 ERA, but continues to find ways to miss time. Since 2010, he has missed 88 games and counting due to his right shoulder.

    When is jeff not injured? Its almost like fleury’s playoff performance. Just count on it going in that he’ll be bad (or injured, in this case).

    He still pitches in MLB? Couldn’t throw a strike in ny n when he did it went 440 ft over a wall. Pirates really suck

    the pirates re signed him when they knew he was injured. the idea is to spend money on healthy, productive players not the chronically injured. un believable stupid ass move.
