Pirates' Mark Melancon unavailable Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates closer Mark Melancon is unavailable to pitch Sunday after racking up three saves in the last three days, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Melancon has dealt with some velocity issues this April and owns a 5.79 ERA and 5:4 K:BB ratio in 9 1/3 innings, but he hasn't surrendered a run in any of his three appearances over the last three days. With the closer getting a scheduled break, the team could turn to lefty Tony Watson or righty Jared Hughes in a save opportunity Sunday.

Pirates' Tony Watson earns win Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Tony Watson was able to pitch out of a jam Saturday to deliver a scoreless eighth inning and eventually earn the win in his team's 2-1 victory over the Diamondbacks.

Watson (1-1) gave up two hits in the outing and had men on second and third with one out, but was able to record a pop out and strikeout to escape the inning.

"There is nobody he doesn't challenge," manager Clint Hurdle said after the game, per MLB.com. "He's been pitching this way for two-plus years. He's cool. He's got a slow heartbeat. He's not going to get rattled."

Pitching coach Ray Searage visited Watson with two men in scoring position and one out, but there was no talk of issuing an intentional walk to the next batter.

"No. Right away, we got with Ray and said we got a plan to get him out," Hurdle said. "We felt we were in an advantage situation with our guy on the mound. We bet on our guy."

Watson gave up three earned runs in his season debut but has been excellent since. Saturday's outing gives him a 3.00 ERA and 11:0 K:BB ratio in 12 innings.

Pirates pitcher Tony Watson picks up six-out save Wednesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Tony Watson worked two nearly perfect innings Wednesday in Pittsburgh's 4-3 win over the Cubs. Watson came on in relief in the eighth after Jared Hughes had issues to start the inning, allowing an RBI single to Miguel Montero to make it a 4-2 game.

Watson got David Ross to hit a grounder to short, which got Starlin Castro out at third, but allowed a run to score to make it 4-3. Watson then got the next two batters out to end the threat. Watson then finished things off in the ninth with a strike out of Bryant for his first save of the year.

"It wasn't the plan to use Tony that long but it was a gritty performance on his part," manager Clint Hurdle said after the game, per the Associated Press.

Watson lowered his ERA to 3.27 in 11 innings of work.

Pirates' Tony Watson takes loss on Opening Day
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates relief pitcher Tony Watson surrendered a three-run home run to take the loss in Monday's season opener against the Reds.

Watson struck out the first batter he faced in the eighth inning before back-to-back singles brought Reds third baseman Todd Frazier to the plate with two on and one out. Frazier slugged the third pitch he saw to left field for a tiebreaking home run that put the Reds ahead for good.

Watson allowed just five home runs in 77 1/3 innings while posting a 1.63 ERA in 2014. He didn't surrendered his fourth earned run last year until June 26 but has three earned runs after just one game in 2015.

Pirates avoid arbitration with Snider, Watson, Rodriguez
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Pirates have locked up outfielder Travis Snider, reliever Tony Watson and second baseman Sean Rodriguez all to one-year contracts, avoiding arbitration, according to Tom Singer of MLB.com. Rodriguez has settled for $1.9 million, Watson will make 1.75 million and Snider is now due to receive $2.1 million next season.

The Pirates acquired Rodriguez from Tampa Bay via trade in the offseason. Rodriguez hit .211 with a career-high 12 home runs, 13 doubles and 41 RBI in 96 games in 2014. Snider slashed .264/.338/.438 with 13 homers and 38 RBI last season. Watson posted a sterling 1.63 ERA over 77 1/3 innings of relief.
