The Pittsburgh Pirates activated Adam Frazier and Gregory Polanco from the disabled list on Friday and both will be available for tonight’s game in St Louis.

Frazier was put on the disabled list back on August 28th with a right hamstring strain. Polanco has been on the DL since August 15th with a left hamstring strain. He has not played since leaving a game early on August 12th. Polanco has been on the DL three times this season, each time with a left hamstring strain

Clint Hurdle talked about limiting both of these players the rest of the way, which would help keep Max Moroff and Jordan Luplow in the lineup more often over the final 21 games of the season.

“We’re probably not going to extend playing time with Adam or Gregory right now,” Hurdle said. “It’s probably going to be a game in, a game out, a couple games out.”

John was born in Kearny, NJ, hometown of the 2B for the Pirates 1909 World Championship team, Dots Miller. In fact they have some of the same relatives in common, so it was only natural for him to become a lifelong Pirates fan. Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game. He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site. John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.
