Clint Barmes Starts a Rehab Assignment With Altoona

Clint Barmes will start a rehab assignment tonight with the Altoona Curve. Barmes was added to the roster today, per an Altoona press release. The pending return for Barmes is probably a welcome sight to those who don’t want to see Michael Martinez in a Pirates starting lineup. It also might be good timing, as Jordy Mercer left today’s game with no reason given. No word yet on how long the rehab process will be for Barmes....

Andrew McCutchen Placed on the DL, Casey Sadler Recalled

The Pittsburgh Pirates have placed Andrew McCutchen on the disabled list, retro 8/4. They have recalled Casey Sadler. Earlier today I wrote about the whole situation involving McCutchen and Neil Walker being kept off the disabled list. On the surface, the issue is that the Pirates are playing with a 23-man roster, in hopes that they can get McCutchen and/or Walker back a few games early. Digging deeper, the big issue here is that the...

The Big Issue With Holding Andrew McCutchen and Neil Walker Off the Disabled List

The Pittsburgh Pirates have been playing with a short bench for the last week, thanks to injuries to their MVP, Andrew McCutchen, and their starting second baseman, Neil Walker.

The Pirates added one more player to their bench over the...

Neil Walker Could Head to the Disabled List

Neil Walker made a pinch hit appearance last night against the Padres, then was originally in today’s lineup. That is no longer the case, as he has been scratched from the game with more issues involving his back. The Pirates will be re-evaluating his status after the game, and could make a potential roster move. What it sounds like is that Walker could be heading to the disabled list. And because of the pinch-hitting appearance...

Update on Michael De La Cruz

Prior to this season, we rated Michael de la Cruz as the 20th best prospect in the Pittsburgh Pirates system and with good reason, he put up extremely impressive numbers in the DSL last year. That led to praise from scouts that saw him play, which put him atop our top DSL prospects list and Baseball America mentioned him as one of the top 20 players from the DSL/VSL last year. He was also named as a possible International breakout...

Gerrit Cole gets roughed up in second rehab start

After a strong first rehab appearance and a pair of side bullpen sessions, Gerrit Cole and the Pirates had high expectations from his second start with Indianapolis on Tuesday. However, those were dashed fairly quickly. Cole allowed ten hits and five earned runs in 4.1 innings on Tuesday. “I think the positives were that I got to the pitch count and got the amount of outs that I needed to get,” Cole said. “Coming off what I went...
