News
Pirates infielder Jung Ho Kang drew the start at third base Monday against the Padres after it was announced starting third baseman Josh Harrison was placed on the disabled list due to a thumb injury. Harrison is expected to miss six weeks.

Kang will likely see the bulk of playing time at third base with Harrison sidelined. They are the only two players to start at third base this season for Pittsburgh. Harrison has a team-high 51 starts and Kang started at third base for the 31st time Monday.

News
Pirates right fielder Gregory Polanco is batting a disturbing .148 (12-for-81) over the last month, but if he's going to work his way out of his slump, he's going to do it with Pittsburgh.

The team has no plans to demote Polanco so he can work on his hitting.

"We believe [he] is going to be a quality major league player but there are growing pains," general manager Neal Huntington told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "And [a demotion] hasn't even been a conversation."

Polanco, who has been benched often against left-handers and sat against Cleveland righty Danny Salazar on Sunday, owns a .231 average that is at its lowest point since May 25.

News
The last time Pirates left-hander Jeff Locke took the mound for the eighth inning he was making his second start of the season.

He did it again Saturday against Cleveland. And he completed it with a shutout and just 89 pitches in the book. He did not finish it - closer Mark Melancon did that - but Locke did raise his record to 5-4 and shrink his ERA to 4.15 with the effort. That is its lowest point since April 23.

Locke breezed, giving up just two hits with no walks and six strikeouts. Cleveland managed both of those singles in the second inning. Double plays in both of the first two frames helped Locke keep his pitch count down. He retired the last 19 batters he faced and has yielded just five earned runs in his last 29 innings pitched.

"He really pitched a good game," Terry Francona told the Northeast Ohio Media Group. "He located his fastbally downl off of that was a changeup, especially to the righties, spun some good breaking balls to the lefties."

News
When the Pirates posted their lineup card Monday against the Padres, starting third baseman Josh Harrison was noticeably absent. It was later revealed Harrison was placed on the 15-day disabled list and be sidelined six weeks due to torn thumb ligaments.

Harrison injured his left thumb Sunday on a slide into second base in the seventh inning. The Pirates announced he will undergo a second opinion later in the week.

Jung Ho Kang, who replaced Harrison in the starting lineup Monday, will likely see the bulk of playing time at third base in Harrison's absence. They are the only two players to start at third base this season for Pittsburgh.

Harrison heads to the DL having hit safely in five straight games. Since June 7, he is batting .333 in his last 25 games. Unfortunately, he hasn't homered in his last 43 games.

News
Pirates left fielder Starling Marte was not in the starting lineup Monday against the Padres a day after leaving Sunday's game due to discomfort on his left side. Sean Rodriguez drew the start in Marte's absence.

"Feels a little better than yesterday. I think I won't have to go on DL," Marte said, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Marte is hitless in his last three games (eight at-bats). However, he is still batting .327 in his last 28 games.
