The Pittsburgh Pirates (16-22) are at home to take on the San Francisco Giants (23-15) in a four-game series, with game three tonight at 6:35 PM. Tyler Anderson will be on the mound for his eighth start. He has a 3.05 ERA in 41.1 innings, with 37 strikeouts and a 1.04 WHIP. The Giants are countering with veteran right-hander Johnny Cueto, who will be making his fifth start. He has a 3.52 ERA in 23 innings, with 20 strikeouts and a 1.13 WHIP.
A roster update. Miguel Yajure goes down. Kyle Keller comes up. Also, Hunter Owen cleared waivers and was sent to Indianapolis.
A bit of an injury update:
Quick Pirates injury update: Derek Shelton says Colin Moran began taking ground balls that were hit right at him today (not ranging side to side) and has been taking dry swings in the cage (no ball just swings on air).
So slow progress, but progress nonetheless.
