Francisco Liriano rocked in loss vs. Braves Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Francisco Liriano was blasted in a loss Tuesday, giving up nine runs (seven earned) on 10 hits and three walks in four-plus innings while striking out four in his team's 11-3 defeat against the Braves.

Liriano (3-10) surrendered a three-run home run in the third inning and entered the fifth down 5-1. The first batter of the fifth reached on an error, and Liriano put three more men on before being removed, with all three eventually scoring. Liriano hadn't allowed more than two earned runs in any of his six second-half starts before Tuesday. He owns a 4.18 ERA and 127:57 K:BB ratio in 118 1/3 innings, and he's scheduled to face the Cardinals Monday.

Pedro Alvarez unlikely to return to third base this season
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates first baseman Pedro Alvarez is unlikely to play third base again this season in anything but an emergency situation, MLB.com reports.

"Right now, I think we have a better option in Josh Harrison," manager Clint Hurdle said Tuesday. "This season, right now -- to put the best team that I can on the field every night, we have better options. We have to find [Alvarez] some at-bats. Is third base the optimum place to get them? No, it is not."

Andrew McCutchen activated, starting Tuesday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Pirates activated outfielder Andrew McCutchen from the disabled list Tuesday, as he has recovered from a fractured rib.

McCutchen has been out since Aug. 3, but has been able to hit and run in recent days. It is not clear whether he is expected to need extra time off moving forward as he manages the fracture, but he is in the starting lineup, batting third Tuesday against the Braves.
