Andrew McCutchen is a late scratch from today’s lineup. The Pirates’ centerfielder reinjured his right shoulder on Wednesday night while making a leaping catch against the outfield fence, and the injury flared up this afternoon during batting practice. Jose Tabata took his spot in the lineup. McCutchen is listed as day to day.

Yesterday, I took a look at Paul Maholm’s potential value on the trade block in preparation for the upcoming July 31st deadline. Garrett Jones is another player that may be available for the right price. Some reports have indicated that the Angels are interested in Jones, although the Pirates claim there has never been an inquiry. So what should we expect in return for Jones?
Ross Ohlendorf left tonight’s game after being struck in the side of the head by a Troy Tulowitzki line drive. Ohlendorf never lost consciousness, briefly dropping to a knee but returning to his feet within seconds. He appeared alert, and walked off the field under his own power. Ohlendorf was taken to a local hospital for precautionary measures.
