Gregory Polanco continues to mash in minors
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Outfielder Gregory Polanco is raking at Triple-A Indianapolis like he's destined for a promotion by the Pirates. He has yet to debut at the major league level.

The 22-year-old Polanco has at least two hits in six of his last 10 games. He slammed three hits, including a home run, scored three and drove in four on Tuesday.

Polanco owns an impressive stat line of .419/.456/.649. He has 20 RBI in 74 at-bats with just 10 strikeouts.

Edinson Volquez takes tough first loss
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Pirates starting pitcher Edinson Volquez continued his solid start to the season Tuesday, but had to settle for his first loss as he was outdueled in a 4-1 loss to the Reds.

Volquez made very few mistakes through his seven innings of work, but he didn't have much room for error with Johnny Cueto tossing his second complete game in a row. Volquez opened the game with six shutout innings, before allowing a pair of runs in the seventh inning, an that was enough to get him saddled with the loss.

Volquez was charged with two runs on five hits and a walk in his seven innings of work. He struck out three while throwing 71 of 100 pitches for strikes in the loss.

Volquez is now just 1-1 through four starts, despite a 1.93 ERA in 28 innings of work. He will try to get back over .500 in his next start Sunday in St. Louis.

No timeline yet for Wandy Rodriguez
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Pirates have yet to give many details on the extent of the knee injury that forced starting pitcher Wandy Rodriguez to the disabled list Monday. Manager Clint Hurdle did tell MLB.com that Rodriguez has the knee drained Monday, though that doesn't really much of a clear idea as the injury's extent.

"You can get a knee drained and have to get it drained again in two months," Hurdle said. "I know people who have had their knee drained a couple of times and had surgery in the winter. It depends on the guy. We'll just have to wait and see."

Rodriguez underwent an MRI on the knee Monday, but the results have not been made public yet.
