News
The investigation into Kang's alleged sexual assault case continues and the Chicago police have given no indication as to when the incident might be resolved, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The case is still being actively investigated, with witnesses being interviewed and additional witnesses being sought out. The woman allegedly assaulted did not cooperate with the police initially, but filed a complaint 10 days after the incident. No charges have been filed against Kang, but we'll have to wait until the investigation is complete for further guidance.

News
Schugel was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Schugel was sent back down in order to make room for Steven Brault, who is getting the start Friday against the Brewers. Throughout the course of the season, Schugel has been up and down between the Pirates and Indianapolis, posting a 3.86 ERA with a 1.08 WHIP over 49 innings with the big league club. The right-hander will likely be back with the Pirates in the near future.

Position Breakdown

News
Frazier will get the start at second base and hit seventh for the Pirates on Tuesday.

Frazier, who has played 21 games with the Pirates, is making the most of his opportunity, hitting .359..405/.590 in 39 at-bats. Frazier and the Pirates will host Felix Hernandez and the Mariners on Tuesday. If the 24-year-old can continue his success that has carried over from the minors, he could be a mainstay and get more starts for the Pirates as the season progresses.

Jameson Taillon, #50

News
Taillon is scheduled to start Saturday against the Brewers, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Taillon was initially slated to pitch Friday, but will now be taking the mound Saturday in Milwaukee. This will be the rookie's first outing against the Brewers, however, he's found success when pitching on the road, as he's 2-1 with a 2.50 ERA away from home.

News
Fryer was reinstated from the paternity list on Tuesday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Fryer will return to his backup catcher role with the Pirates as Elias Diaz was optioned back to Triple-A Indianapolis. Over his past 10 games with the Pirates, Fryer is hitting .320 with five RBI in 25 at-bats. He will be available on Tuesday at the Pirates host the Mariners.

Position Breakdown

News
Polanco returns to the starting lineup Friday and will bat second after sitting out Wednesday's win over Seattle.

The right fielder went 4-for-5 with his 13th homer Wednesday. He was hitless in two at-bats with a walk against Friday starter Junior Guerra on July 19.

John Jaso, #28

Position Breakdown
1B - 78, OF - 1
News
Jaso is not in the starting lineup on Wednesday for the Pirates.

After a really good April and May, Jaso has struggled the last two months for the Pirates. In July, Jaso is hitting .222/.276/.278 with just three extra-base hits in 54 at-bats. Jaso will give way to David Freese at first base when the Pirates host the Mariners on Wednesday. If Jaso continues to struggle at the plate, don't be surprised if Jaso starts to see his playing time diminish.

Injuries
Shoulder - Expected to be out until at least Aug 8 (Updated - 7/24/16)
News
Glasnow (shoulder) threw from 90 feet Friday, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

This marked the first day that Glasnow threw from 90 feet while rehabbing his shoulder. He was able to throw without any discomfort and should continue progressing as scheduled. This bodes well for the Pirates, as they are expected to activate Glasnow from the disabled list when he is eligible on August 8.

Andrew McCutchen, #22

Position Breakdown

News
McCutchen went 3-for-5 with a homer, a double, and four RBI in the Pirates' blowout win over the Mariners.

McCutchen lead the offense while starter Gerrit Cole threw a dominating three-hit complete game. McCutchen entered the game mired in a 4-for-26 slump, which he broke out of with authority. Despite hitting just .241/.314/.405 entering Wednesday's contest, the Pirates have kept faith in their star centerfielder, continuing to bat him third in the order. Fantasy owners should keep faith as well, and hope Wednesday's performance is a sign of better days ahead for McCutchen.

News
Liriano (6-10) lasted just 3.1 innings in a home start Tuesday, allowing seven earned runs on eight hits and four walks while receiving the loss. He struck out three.

It has been a disappointing 2016 season for Liriano, whose ERA rose to 5.38 in the loss. The veteran left-hander has averaged a strikeout per inning, but leads the league with a whopping 66 walks allowed. He threw just 38 strikes on Tuesday, his lowest number of any start since September of 2015. Liriano will want to pitch better moving forward, or he may be at risk of losing his starting spot with Tyler Glasnow and Ryan Vogelsong potentially returning from the DL in the coming weeks.

Jordy Mercer, #10

Position Breakdown
SS - 96
News
Mercer went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI, and three runs scored in the Pirates' 10-1 win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

Mercer did exactly what a leadoff man should do Wednesday, getting on base and scoring three times over the course of the night. He raised his batting average to .282 with the three-hit game, and the runs brought his total to 43 on the season. He's spent most of the year batting towards the bottom of the order, but should have significant run-scoring potential if he continues to bat atop the Pirates' order.

Foot - Probable for Jul 30 (Updated - 7/30/16)
News
Cervelli was removed from Friday's game in the eighth inning after being struck on the right foot by a pitch while catching, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

It's not entirely clear what type of setback Cervelli is dealing with, but he had to be helped off the field and could not put any weight on his right foot. Expect his status to be updated when more details become available.

News
Rodriguez is starting in right field and hitting seventh for the Pirates on Wednesday.

Rodriguez, who is hitting .286/.412/.554 with three home runs in 56 at-bats against left-handed pitching this season, will face off against Mariners starter James Paxton on Wednesday. Rodriguez will start in place of Gregory Polanco.

Position Breakdown

News
Freese could start Wednesday against starter James Paxton, against whom he's batting .294 (5-for-17) with a double and two home runs.

He only has five hits in his last 36 at-bats but is still slashing .279/.358/.449 in 158 at-bats. Freese will become a free agent following the season, so there's a small chance he could be on the move if the Pirates become sellers at the trade deadline.

Ryan Vogelsong, #14
Year-to-date Stats

Injuries
Neck - Expected to be out until at least Aug 2 (Updated - 7/26/16)
News
Vogelsong (neck) hurled seven innings of two-run ball Wednesday for Triple-A Indianapolis and could become a candidate for Pittsburgh's rotation in the coming week.

Depending upon what roster moves transpire at the trade deadline, Vogelsong will either return to the rotation or bullpen. The 39-year-old righty would be looked upon as an innings eater if he came back as a starter. He made just two starts in 12 appearances before suffering a serious eye injury while batting in May.

News
Harrison is not in the starting lineup as the Pirates take on the Mariners on Tuesday,

Harrison will take a seat as Adam Frazier will get the start at second base. Over his past 10 games, Harrison has struggled, hitting just .167 with seven strikeouts in 31 at-bats. Look for Harrison to be back in the lineup on Wednesday as the Pirates host left-hander James Paxton and the Mariners.

Injuries
Knee - Expected to be out until at least Jul 31 (Updated - 7/24/16)
News
Stewart (knee) ran the bases on Wednesday and will increase his baseball activities this weekend, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

There is still no timetable on the return of Stewart to Pittsburgh. In his absence, Eric Fryer has been serving as the backup catcher for the Pirates. With Fryer playing well, it's unclear whether Stewart will reclaim his spot in Pittsburgh upon his return from the disabled list.

Gerrit Cole, #45
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK
6687.12.782373
 
News
Cole (6-6) dazzled Wednesday against the Mariners, tossing a complete game in which he allowed just one run on three hits and no walks while striking out six.

Cole was quite efficient on Wednesday, needing just 93 pitches to retire 27 Mariners as the Pirates cruised to a 10-1 blowout win. The complete game was Cole's first of his four-year career and came at a much-needed time for fantasy owners. Cole had lost his previous two starts since returning from a month-long DL stint in late June and early July. Cole now has a 2.78 ERA and a solid 73:23 K:BB ratio on the season. He'll look to keep things going next week in Atlanta.
