Pirates' Hurdle not concerned with McCutchen's knee 'right now'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle acknowledged Tuesday that center fielder Andrew McCutchen is picking his spots to run to first base on batted balls to limit the wear on his knee, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

"I don't think it's a concerning area right now," Hurdle said about McCutchen's knee.

"I think Andrew has already figured out some ways to do some different things," Hurdle said of McCutchen handling the discomfort, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "I think the more we talk about his physical presence being diminished, I think we're (headed) in the wrong direction."

McCutchen has struggled in the early part of the season while dealing with the health issues. He's hit just .193/.291/.307 with two home runs and 13 RBI in 88 at-bats.

Pirates' Harrison off, Cervelli batting second Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's matchup with the Reds.

Harrison played a total of 35 innings during a three-game stretch over the weekend as the Pirates lost three straight extra-innings games to the Cardinals. The Pirates were off Monday, but Harrison will get an extra day to rest.

"He's had the tendency throughout the season at times where the weight is transferring from back to front, and the term we use is it's almost like falling into your swing," manager Clint Hurdle said Tuesday, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "It's (about) getting that foot down, holding his backside, keeping his weight where it needs to be."

With the third baseman out, Francisco Cervelli will bat second for the third time this season.

"You've got to come to the field ready for anything," Cervelli said. "I just like to be in the lineup. I spent a lot of time in my career showing up and seeing my name at the bottom of the paper (as a bench player). Now I just like to see it anywhere in No. 1 through 9, and I'm happy."

The Pirates are favorites (-145) against the Reds at home Tuesday.
