Elias Diaz. - MATT SUNDAY / DKPS

CINCINNATIFrancisco Cervelli has no plans to head to the disabled list, but the Pirates have added insurance in case his knee injury worsens.

Top catching prospect Elias Diaz was recalled from Class AAA Indianapolis prior to Monday night's 7:10 p.m. game against the Reds at Great American Ball Park and catcher John Borrman, who had an at-bat during his emergency call up in Sunday's loss to Miami, was optioned to Class A Bradenton.
