NEWS AND RUMORS
Follow along throughout the day as we provide updates and commentary on the daily Pirates news, along with links to stories around Pittsburgh Baseball Network.
Tonight’s game will be delayed. Pirates haven’t even released their lineup yet and it’s just 30 minutes until the originally scheduled start time.
Lineup is up, as well as a transaction. Jacob Stallings has gone on the concussion injured list and Taylor Davis has joined the Pirates. To make room for Davis, Bryse Wilson was placed on the 60-day injured list. His injury is minor, but there’s 14 days left in the season counting today, so at most he is missing one start. More than likely, he was being shut down for the season anyway. Davis was acquired in a trade earlier this year and has been in Indianapolis since, where he hit .241/.338/.319 in 38 games. He had 99 days of service time in the majors coming into this year, spending time with the Chicago Cubs during the 2017-19 seasons.
