  • Tsutsugo's injured which sent him to the injured list was revealed to be a lumbar muscle strain Friday, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports. Tsutsugo has struggled to a .177/.281/.257 line through 35 games this season, but it's not clear to what extent that can be attributed to his injury. While the reason for his absence has now been clarified, the Pirates have yet to provide a timetable for his return.

  • Tsutsugo was placed on the 10-day injured list with an undisclosed injury Thursday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Tsutusgo was out of the lineup Wednesday for what appeared to be rest. However, he is apparently battling an injury that has yet to be disclosed. While Mason Martin has hit the ball well at Triple-A Indianapolis, Tucupita Marcano is reportedly being recalled by Pittsburgh in the corresponding move. While Tsutsugo is sidelined, Michael Chavis should be locked into playing time at first base.

  • Tsutsugo isn't starting Wednesday against the Rockies. Tsutsugo drew starts in the last 10 games, but he'll get a breather after going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Tuesday's loss to Colorado. Ben Gamel will serve as the designated hitter while Cal Mitchell starts in right field.

  • Tsutsugo went 1-for-4 with an RBI on Monday against Colorado. Tsutsugo hit a chopper to second base and was able to beat the throw to drive in the game-winning run in the eighth inning. He's driven in a run in each of his last four games, also collecting two extra-base hits in 13 at-bats. Tsutsugo's line remains subpar at .183/.290/.266 across 131 plate appearances, but the Pirates have been willing to keep him in place as the primary first baseman.

  • Tsutsugo went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI on Saturday against the Cardinals. Tsutsugo roped an RBI double over the head of Harrison Bader in the bottom of the second inning for his first knock of the game. He added a single later, recording the first multi-hit effort in his last eight starts. In that span, he has hit just .040 with two RBI and no runs scored. Despite his struggles, Tsutsugo has remained the Pirates' primary first baseman and is hitting .175/.276/.233 across 123 plate appearances for the campaign.
