Injury News: Grilli Getting Closer

Clint Hurdle said before today’s game that there are tentative plans for Jason Grilli to begin his rehabilitation stint. “Jason is going to pitch tomorrow in Altoona.

Pirates Notebook: The Growth of Cole

The deciding factor of the move was what Neal Huntington said would give Locke a “short break” while the Pirates could maintain a full roster until Altoona’s season ends next week. Huntington...

Byrd Homers in Debut, Morton Fires a Gem as Pirates Win 7-1

Marlon Byrd didn’t have the game-winning hit or even the knockout blow, really, when the Pirates beat the Brewers Wednesday. But, the Pirates’ newest addition to the starting lineup made the most noise with a three-run home run over the center field fence and into the bushes that broke open a 4-1 ballgame in the bottom of the seventh. “It was one of those things, you come to a new team, new stadium, new fans, new...
