Pittsburgh, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Pittsburgh Pirates placed outfielder Starling Marte on the seven-day concussion disabled list on Wednesday.

Marte left Friday's game against the Rockies after taking an Adam Ottavino fastball off his helmet. He played in Monday's series opener against the Dodgers, but was absent from Pittsburgh's lineup on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old is hitting .255 with five home runs and 34 RBI over 86 games this season, his third with the Pirates.

Pittsburgh also recalled infielder Brent Morel from Triple-A Indianapolis.
