Hayes (wrist/hand) faced live pitching in the batting cage Tuesday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Assistant hitting coach Christian Romero said the 24-year-old looked good in the cage, which is welcome news after the Pirates said Monday the third baseman didn't have an official timeline for his return. Hayes has been battling discomfort in his lower hand and wrist, and he's currently traveling with the team on its seven-game road trip through San Diego and Chicago.
