Pirates | More on Gerrit Cole's rehab outing

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 17:04:32 -0700

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (lat) will make a minor-league rehab start Monday, July 28, with Triple-A Indianapolis. Manager Clint Hurdle said Cole will shoot for 80 to 85 pitches Monday after throwing 60 pitches in a bullpen session Friday, July 25. Cole sounded open to making at least one or two rehab starts before returning to the big club.

Fantasy Tip: It might be two more scoring periods before fantasy owners have Cole back with the big league team. Be patient, but don't expect to activate him until early August.

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez (knee) completed drills Friday, July 24, and could be available off the bench.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole to rehab Monday

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 15:32:50 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (lat) said he will make a rehab start Monday, July 28, for Triple-A Indianapolis.

Fantasy Tip: Cole could be back sometime in early August at that rate. Hopefully his quick and painful return last time taught him to take his time in this recovery. He's a must-start when he comes back, frankly because you're running out of time to use him this year.

Pirates | Gaby Sanchez batting cleanup

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:53:48 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Gaby Sanchez is batting fourth and playing first base Friday, July 25, against the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez faces lefty Brett Anderson in hitter-friendly Coors Field tonight. It is a favorable matchup given his .274/.346/.493 slash line against left-handed pitchers. Sanchez's low price in daily games makes him a viable option tonight.

Pirates | No Pedro Alvarez

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:25:48 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez (knee) is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 25, against the Colorado Rockies. 3B Brent Morel is filling in at third and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Morel is worth a look in daily games. He is cheap, and the game is being played at hitter-friendly Coors Field. Alvarez hasn't played since he left early Tuesday, July 22, because of left knee discomfort. Check back for updates on Alvarez's status.

Pirates | Worried about A.J Burnett's option

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 17:10:17 -0700

The Pittsburgh Pirates have some interest in trading for Philadelphia Phillies SP A.J. Burnett but are worried about him picking up his player option for 2015, which would be worth at least $7.5 million. The option could be worth as much as $12.75 million if he reaches all of his incentives.

Pirates | Starling Marte placed on concussion DL

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 16:57:53 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Pittsburgh Pirates placed OF Starling Marte (head) on the 7-day concussion disabled list Wednesday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: With Marte sidelined, Travis Snider made the start in left field and was in the two-hole. Snider is likely to benefit the most from Marte's absence, and is a good short-term pick-up in NL-only leagues. In daily salary cap leagues, Snider has a minimal salary with most providers, and he could be a steal for a few days if he gets regular at-bats.

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 16:57:12 -0700
