Pirates SP A.J. Burnett expects to return soon
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

After throwing a simulated game Friday without any issues, Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett said he expects to return soon, reports Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

"I feel where I need to be," said Burnett, who is on the 15-day disabled list because of a flexor strain in his right elbow. "A lot better than I expected to."

He is set to throw a bullpen session Sunday and then go from there.

"I expect to be throwing soon for the Pirates, because I feel great," he said.

Pirates CF Andrew McCutchen fine for critical game Friday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Pirates slugger Andrew McCutchen is ready to roll Friday for the opener of a critical series in St. Louis. He is in his familar third spot in the lineup.

McCutchen has been dealing with a nagging knee ailment, but it hasn't been evident by his performance at the plate. He has slammed two hits in nine of his last 15 games.

PIrates SP Francisco Liriano falls apart in loss to Brewers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Pirates had won 11 consecutive games started by southpaw Francisco Liriano when they arrived at the ballpark Thursday in Milwaukee.

Liriano didn't allow them to make it 12. He continued to slump with a weak effort in which he allowed four runs on seven hits in just five innings with five walks and four strikeouts. The walk total was his highest since April 26.

He was fine through four, but a Khris Davis double tallied one in the fifth and a walk, triple and double to start the sixth sent him to the showers.

Liriano now owns a 3.40 ERA, its highest point since May 29. He has given up 19 runs in 32 1/3 innings since the beginning of August.

Pirates' Corey Hart to miss the rest of 2015
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Pirates first baseman/outfielder Corey Hart will not return in 2015. Hart has been out since the middle of June with shoulder and knee injuries. He had been on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis.

But the Pirates recalled Hart from the rehab stint but will not activate him from the 60-day disabled list. Instead, he will head home to Arizona and prepare for the 2016 campaign. 

Brought in by the Pirates on a low-risk, one-year deal, Hart had a forgettable 2015 season. He registered just 54 at-bats, collecting 12 hits--including a double and two home runs--in 35 games. The oft-injured slugger hasn't played more than 70 games since 2012 with the Brewers.
