Tue, 19 Aug 2014 14:57:28 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer (forearm) said he is not 100 percent, and he doesn't expect to completely heal.

Pirates | Won't use Pedro Alvarez at third often

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 13:24:02 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez will not play third base often, if at all for the remainder of the season, according to manager Clint Hurdle.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez's at-bats are likely to take a significant hit. He could prove to be unworthy of a roster spot in the majority of formats. If you have the luxury to be patient in deep mixed leagues, see how Hurdle handles Alvarez's playing time before you cut ties.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez to start at first base

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 14:00:56 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez is starting at first base Monday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez is getting his first start at first base and likely will be spending more time at the position next season. He is still considered a third baseman in most fantasy leagues and has not hit a home run in about a month, which makes him a risky play.

Pirates | Andrew McCutchen could return Tuesday

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 12:51:53 -0700

The Pittsburgh Pirates are optimistic that OF Andrew McCutchen (rib) could be activated from the 15-day disabled list when he is eligible Tuesday, Aug. 19, according to manager Clint Hurdle.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to see if McCuthen is ready to come off the disabled list or still needs a few more days to recover. When he does come off the disabled list, he should return to the lineup in all fantasy leagues.
