    • Manager Clint Hurdle said following Friday's game that Cervelli is dealing with right foot discomfort, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. The initial diagnosis of the injury that forced Cervelli from Friday's appears promising, but Cervelli needed to be helped off the field and refused to comment on his setback, so he could still miss time. The Pirates' lineup for Saturday's game should shed more light on Cervelli's status if the Pirates don't provide further details before.
