Cubs-Pirates postponed Monday due to rain; make-up date TBD
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Monday's game between the Cubs and Pirates has been postponed due to rain. After two rain delays totaling more than three hours, the game was called in the fourth inning with the score tied 1-1.

A make-up date for the game has not yet been announced. 

Cubs manager will talk with Monday's starter Jon Lester regarding his next start. He could come back a day or two early, according to ESPN.com.

The Pirates announced that they will stay with their current rotation and keep everyone on regular rest, meaning Monday's starter Francisco Liriano will toe the rubber again on Sunday. 

Both starters were removed from the game following the first delay, which lasted two hours.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Pirates have added first baseman/outfielder Michael Morse to the active roster on Monday. Morse was acquired from the Dodgers in exchange for outfielder Jose Tabata just before Friday's trade deadline.

Morse was slashing a disappointing .213/.276/.313 with four home runs and 12 RBI in 53 games with the Marlins, before being dealt to Los Angeles in a three-team deal last week. 

To clear room on the 25-man roster, outfielder Jaff Decker was optioned to Triple-A Indianpolis, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune
