Injury Updates: Liriano, Karstens, Morton

Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle addressed the status of several of the team's injured pitchers prior to today's game against the Chicago Cubs.

Francisco Liriano threw off a mound yesterday and Charlie Morton threw a simulated game today, Hurdle said.

"All our guys are making progress," he said.

Jeff Karstens is still nursing an inflamed right shoulder. Hurdle said he expected Karstens to begin throwing again later this week.

"Jeff is still doing all the scat work. He's scheduled to get up and get moving," Hurdle said. "Not going to be any arm throwing for him until, I think, later this week. He's still rehabbing, doing the scat work. There hasn't been any planned mound work scheduled of yet. He'll start on flat ground."
