  • Pirates' Kevin Newman: Knocks three hits

    Newman went 3-for-5 with a double, a run scored and a stolen base in Sunday's 8-2 loss to the Phillies. Newman swiped second base after singling in the first inning before doubling and scoring a run in the third. It was his fourth stolen base of the year and third in his last 12 games. In 18 games since returning from the injured list, Newman has gone 23-for-73 (.315) with eight runs scored and nine extra-base hits. He's slashing .289/.338/.421 through 32 games this season.

  • Pirates' Kevin Newman: Productive against Phillies

    Newman went 2-for-4 with a triple, a walk, a stolen base, two RBI and a run scored Thursday against the Phillies. Newman occupied his typical leadoff role and has started 14 of 16 games since returning from the injured list July 8. In that span, he's hit .271 with six RBI and six runs scored while also chipping in two stolen bases. Despite the poor state of the Pirates' offense, Newman has a significant role and could be a decent source of runs, stolen bases and batting average across the final two months of the campaign.

  • Pirates' Kevin Newman: Takes seat Monday

  • Pirates' Kevin Newman: Collects three hits

    Newman went 3-for-6 with a double, two runs and two RBI in an 8-3 win against the Rockies on Sunday. Newman scored after reaching on an error in the first inning, singled in the second, doubled and scored in the sixth and brought home two runs with a single in the ninth. The three-hit performance is the middle infielder's second of the month as he's batting .300 through 40 July at-bats, though he has just one walk and three extra-base hits -- all of them doubles -- in 10 games.

  • Pirates' Kevin Newman: Swipes second bag

    Newman went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base Thursday against the Marlins. Newman has served as Pittsburgh's leadoff hitter in four of the team's last five games -- each of which has come against lefties. He has been productive in that span, collecting six hits in 19 at-bats to go along with two RBI, a run scored and his second stolen base of the year. In particular, his ability to be aggressive on the basepaths is encouraging given that he just returned from a groin injury July 9.

  • Pirates' Kevin Newman: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Newman isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Marlins. Newman started in the last five games and hit .364 with a double, two runs and two RBI during that time. Josh VanMeter will draw the start at second base and lead off.

  • Pirates' Kevin Newman: Tallies pair of hits

    Newman went 2-for-5 with an RBI on Sunday against the Brewers. Newman was activated from the injured list Friday and has started all three games since at second base. He has gone 4-for-13 in that span, scoring a run and tallying an RBI. Newman's return will have the potential to squeeze both Michael Chavis and Josh VanMeter from a regular spot in Pittsburgh's lineup.

  • Pirates' Kevin Newman: Finds regular home at second base

    Newman will start at second base and bat leadoff in Sunday's game against the Brewers. Though rookie Oneil Cruz took over as Pittsburgh's everyday shortstop during his prolonged stay on the injured list, Newman looks like he'll get regular run at second base after being activated Friday. He'll man the keystone for the third straight game Sunday after going 2-for-8 with a run scored in the previous two contests.

  • Pirates' Kevin Newman: Will work at shortstop, second base

    Pirates general manager Ben Cherington said Sunday that Newman (groin/hamstring) will see time at both shortstop and second base once he's ready to return from the 60-day injured list, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Newman served as Pittsburgh's primary shortstop in 2021 and opened the current season atop the depth chart at the position before landing on the IL in late April with a left groin strain. He then suffering a hamstring injury during his initial rehab assignment at Triple-A Indianapolis in late May, resulting in his timeline for a return being pushed back. Newman restarted the minor-league assignment June 21 and has slashed .419/.424/.484 in his eight games with Indianapolis, likely setting him up to rejoin the big club this week. He'll be joining a Pirates club that has prioritized younger options in recent weeks, most notably installing hotshot rookie Oneil Cruz as its full-time shortstop. Though Cherington indicated Cruz "doesn't need to be at shortstop every day," the expectation is that the 28-year-old Newman will have to settle for more of a utility role while Cruz continues to see the bulk of the starts at shortstop.

  • Pirates' Kevin Newman: Cleared for rehab assignment

    Newman (groin/hamstring) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports. Newman is one of three injured Pirates position players who will kick off his rehab assignment at Indianapolis this week, with first baseman/designated hitter Yoshi Tsutsugo (back) and infielder Josh VanMeter (finger) set to join him. Prior to landing on the injured list, both Newman and VanMeter were holding down regular roles in the middle infield, but both could have to settle for reserve duties upon their respective returns. Top prospect Oneil Cruz was called up from Indianapolis on Monday and should serve as the Pirates' everyday shortstop moving forward, likely leaving Newman and VanMeter to vie for time at the keystone with a pair of rookies -- Diego Castillo and Tucupita Marcano (illness) -- once they're activated from the IL.

  • Pirates' Kevin Newman: Nearing rehab stint

    Newman (groin/hamstring) has progressed in his recovery and will be considered for a rehab assignment within the next five days, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports. The 28-year-old has been participating in all baseball activities without pain for at least a week, and he's now on the cusp of a minor-league rehab assignment. Newman was on the injured list for a month with the groin injury when he suffered a hamstring injury in late May, so he'll likely require at least a handful of games in the minors to get back up to speed.

  • Pirates' Kevin Newman: No longer experiencing pain

    Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that Newman (groin) is pain-free with all baseball activities, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports. Newman resumed running Sunday and continues to build up while participating in all baseball activities. The 28-year-old isn't eligible to return from the 60-day IL until June 26, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him begin a rehab assignment in the coming weeks prior to rejoining the major-league club.

  • Pirates' Kevin Newman: Starts running

    Newman (groin) resumed running Sunday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. He is eligible to return June 26, and it seems like that could be achievable. The Pirates have deserving young middle-infield options in Diego Castillo and Tucupita Marcano, so it remains to be seen how much Newman will play once healthy.

  • Pirates' Kevin Newman: Hasn't resumed baseball activities

    Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that Newman (groin/hamstring) hasn't yet resumed baseball activities, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports. Newman suffered a hamstring-related setback during a rehab assignment at Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday, and he was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday. The 28-year-old isn't eligible to return until at least late June following Monday's transaction, and he's received treatment since suffering his setback. It's not yet clear when he'll be able to resume baseball activities.

  • Pirates' Kevin Newman: Shifts to 60-day IL

    Newman (groin/hamstring) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports. Newman has been sidelined since late April due to a groin injury, and he recently suffered a hamstring-related setback during a rehab assignment at Triple-A Indianapolis. The 28-year-old's setback is apparently relatively significant, as he'll now be unavailable until at least late June. A better idea of his return timetable should come into focus once he's cleared for another rehab stint. Rodolfo Castro has been serving as the Pirates' primary shortstop in Newman's absence.

  • Pirates' Kevin Newman: Hits snag during rehab assignment

    Pirates general manager Ben Cherington said Newman (groin) suffered a hamstring-related setback during the infielder's rehab assignment at Triple-A Indianapolis, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports. Newman most recently played for Indianapolis on Friday, when he presumably experienced hamstring pain that Cherington notes is unrelated to the strained left groin that first sent him to the injured list in late April. Cherington added that the hamstring issue is on the minor side for Newman, but the 28-year-old looks like he'll be held out of action for at least a few days before restarting his rehab assignment. Fantasy managers should probably plan on him missing at least another week.

  • Pirates' Kevin Newman: Beginning rehab assignment Tuesday

    Newman (groin) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment at Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports. After incorporating running workouts into his regimen of baseball activities late last week, Newman showed enough progress in his recovery from the left groin strain to advance to the final stage of his rehab program. He'll most likely play in at least two games at Indianapolis before potentially rejoining the Pirates for the start of their homestand Friday. Once activated from the 10-day injured list, Newman should settle back in as the Pirates' everyday shortstop, leaving Rodolfo Castro and Diego Castillo to battle Josh VanMeter for playing time at second base.

  • Pirates' Kevin Newman: Nearing rehab appearance

    Newman (groin) is expected to begin a rehab assignment "in the coming days," Jake Crouse of MLB.com reports. Newman will test his injury by running the bases by the end of the week. Assuming that goes well, he'll begin what will likely be a relatively lengthy rehab assignment. Newman was expected to miss 3-to-5 weeks after landing on the injured list April 27, and he appears likely to return in the middle of that estimate.

  • Pirates' Kevin Newman: Resumes baseball activities

    Newman (groin) has resumed all baseball activities except running, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Newman has been on the injured list for a week, and it's encouraging to see him participate in most baseball activities. The 28-year-old is expected to miss 3-to-5 weeks due to his left groin strain and will need to resume running before he's cleared to progress further in his recovery process.
