The 26th would be Morton making two starts, and getting five days rest. That would give Jeanmar Gomez three starts in the Pirates' rotation, including today's start against the Mets. The Pirates couldn't really avoid that third start. They have an off-day on May 20th, which means they could move A.J. Burnett and Jeff Locke up a day and keep them on five days rest. The problem is they'd need a starter on the 25th, and would be left with a choice of Wandy Rodriguez or Charlie Morton on four days rest.

**Bill Brink reports that Jeff Karstens will be throwing three innings and 50 pitches tomorrow for Bradenton.
