Pirates | GM addresses Gerrit Cole situation

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 19:04:22 -0700

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (lat) was scratched from his scheduled minor-league rehab start Friday, Aug. 1, so he could throw another bullpen session "to refine some things," according to general manager Neal Huntington.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if Cole suffered some sort of a setback, the team saw something it did not like, or he is making enough progress to where he will not need to appear in a minor-league game and is on his way back to the big club. Fantasy owners need to hang tight until there is more clarity.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole scratched from rehab outing

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 17:58:38 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (lat) was scratched from his minor-league start with Triple-A Indianapolis Friday, Aug. 1. The exact reason for his scratching is not yet known.

Fantasy Tip: Earlier in the evening there was some weather in western New York, so perhaps that played a role, but that's pure speculation at this point. Fantasy owners, keep your fingers crossed that he did not suffer a setback.

Pirates | No Pedro Alvarez

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 14:53:33 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup Friday, August 1, against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez has seen his playing time decrease substantially the past two weeks. He has been sitting against left-handed pitchers more of late, so that is likely the case tonight with Vidal Nuno on the hill for Arizona. If Alvarez continues to lose playing time, it will be difficult to stick with him in mixed leagues.

Pirates | Starling Marte rehab date set

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 16:05:53 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (concussion) will begin a four-game rehab stint Saturday, August 2, with Triple-A Indianapolis.

Fantasy Tip: It has been a disappointing sophomore campaign for Marte. He should be owned in the majority of formats, though, and he could finish strong. Expect him back the middle of next week. He shouldn't be started this week in weekly lineup leagues. Josh Harrison could see decreased playing time when Marte returns.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez working on throwing problems

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 11:51:38 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez was partly benched the last two days in order to work on his throwing problems at third base. Twenty one of his 23 major league-leading errors this year have been on throws. "He just needs to continue to work," manager Clint Hurdle said. "We want to help him regain his form on (offense and defense) that he's shown us in the past."

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez has become a platoon third baseman because of his throwing issues and his struggles against lefties and the fact that Josh Harrison has been raking. You should only own Alvarez in deep mixed and NL-only leagues at this point.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez sitting again

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 09:57:56 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez is out of the lineup for the second straight day against a lefty Wednesday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Starting Alvarez against a lefty is foolish, since he's hitting only .181 against them this year. Make sure he's out of your daily lineups today.

Pirates | A.J. Burnett talks appear off

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 23:59:00 -0700

The Pittsburgh Pirates appear to be out of the hunt for Philadelphia Phillies SP A.J. Burnett. The issue is that Burnett has been unwilling to give an assurance that he would not pick up his player option for next season, creating too much financial uncertainty for Pittsburgh.

Pirates | In the mix for Jon Lester?

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 20:22:35 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Jon Lester could be on the move to the Pittsburgh Pirates, a team which is viewed as a dark-horse candidate in the pre-trade deadline sweepstakes, according to a major league source. One name at the center of the talks is Double-A switch-hitting prospect OF Joshua Bell, according to sources. The Los Angeles Dodgers are another team believed to be in the running for Lester's service.

Fantasy Tip: The Boston pitcher was scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday, July 30. Other teams pursuing a frontline starter are the Baltimore Orioles, Milwaukee Brewers, St. Louis Cardinals and Seattle Mariners. The Milwaukee Brewers are in that club, too, although a report earlier said they are not in on Lester.
