Pirela (finger) is not in Friday's lineup against the Padres.

Pirela will be out of the lineup for the third straight contest while dealing with a sprained finger, although he was able to come in as a pinch runner during Wednesday's affair. It appears as though he is on the verge of returning to the starting nine, but Cory Spangenberg will draw another start in left field in his place for Friday's series opener.
