Last night I wrote about a few injury updates from the press conference with Clint Hurdle. The Pirates have released more information this morning, including updates on a few new players.
Chris Stewart – I wrote last night that Hurdle said there has been no progress with Stewart as he is dealing with a hamstring injury. The Pirates say he has a strain of his right hamstring, and that he is week to week, but will likely be out of game activity for at least two weeks. This makes it extremely unlikely that he will be ready for the start of the season, which would open a spot on the Opening Day roster for Tony Sanchez.
Brent Morel – Out with right hamstring discomfort. Progressing well, but remains unavailable for game activity.
Justin Sellers – Out with discomfort in his left Achilles tendon. Unavailable for game activity. He also went home to California yesterday for the birth of his child.
Jose Tabata – He went down last night with a right ankle contusion, and is unavailable for game activity.
