Neil Walker Returns to the Pirates Lineup, But Jordy Mercer is Out

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.

The injuries remove two of their most productive hitters, and as a result, the Pirates have waited to put both players on the disabled list, in hopes that they can come back earlier than 15 days. 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...
