Prior to Monday’s game against the Chicago Cubs, the Pittsburgh Pirates announced that outfielder Bryan Reynolds has been activated off of the 10-day Injured List. To make room for him on the 26-man roster, Jake Marisnick has been placed on the 10-day Injured List with a sprained toe. Reynolds was placed on the IL on July 11th with an oblique strain. Marisnick was activated from the 60-day IL that same day, so they are just trading places again on the IL/roster.
Reynolds, who is batting second and starting in center field, is hitting .261/.343/.465 in 83 games this year. Marisnick was hitting well during his brief time back, putting up a .357/.400/.714 slash line in 30 plate appearances.
