Pedro Alvarez could return for postseason
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Though Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez, who hasn't played since Sept. 5, has been ruled out for the rest of the regular season, he could potentially return for the NLDS if the Pirates advance that far, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune. The Pirates are currently tied with the Giants for the top wild card spot.

Alvarez had lost his starting third base job to Josh Harrison even before the injury, but he had begun transitioning to first base, making five starts there.

Vance Worley dominates in return to rotation
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

In making his first start for the Pirates in 11 days, Vance Worley turned in one of his best performances of the season, shutting down the Brewers in a 1-0 victory. The eight-inning scoreless stint was Worley's second-longest of the season, as he limited the Brewers to four singles with no walks.

Worley struck out five batters on the afternoon. He now owns an 8-4 record and a 2.93 ERA. Assuming he remains in the rotation in place of the injured Charlie Morton (sports hernia), Worley would pitch next at the Reds on Friday.

Edinson Volquez picks up no decision after strong start
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Edinson Volquez turned in a scoreless start Saturday against the Brewers.

Volquez allowed three hits over seven scoreless frames. He struck out six and issued three walks during the appearance. Though he was mostly unhittable during the outing, Volquez never seriously flirted with a no-hitter. He gave up a double in the first inning, but was able to get out of the frame without giving up any runs. Volquez put two runners on base during the third inning, but was otherwise able to prevent multiple base runners during the start.

Volquez left with the game tied, picking up a no-decision. He’ll take on the Braves in his next start.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Pirates starting pitcher Jeff Locke pitched well in a no-decision at home Friday night against the Brewers. The left-hander permitted two runs on five hits and no walks while striking out three over seven innings of a 4-2 win.

All of Pittsburgh's runs were scored in the eighth inning when Locke was out of the game. Over his last three starts covering 19 1/3 innings, Locke has allowed six earned runs. He owns a 3.60 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP over 20 starts (127 1/3 innings). His next start will come Wednesday at Atlanta.
