UPDATE: The Pirates have a game today, so that means another injury to report. Bryan Reynolds leaves early due to left quad muscle discomfort. They say it’s just a precaution, so that’s a positive. Jason Martin replaced him.
Bryan Reynolds was removed from the game as a precaution due to left quadriceps muscle discomfort. He is being examined and treated by the medical staff.
