Pirates' Colin Moran: Sitting again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran is not in lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Moran will take a seat for the second straight contest with another left-hander taking the mound in Jose Quintana. Jung Ho Kang will start at the hot corner and bat fifth in his absence Sunday.

Pirates' Colin Moran: Receives day off Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran is not in the lineup Saturday against the Cubs.

Jose Osuna gets the start at third base and will bat sixth against Chicago left-hander Jon Lester. Moran has started 11 of the past 12 games and is 8-for-16 with three RBI and three runs scored in his last five games. The left-handed-hitting third baseman has a .621 OPS in 29 plate appearances against left-handed pitchers, and only three of his 49 RBI this season have come against southpaws.

Pirates' Colin Moran: Rewarded with playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran, who has settled into a nearly everyday playing role, is slashing .294/.335/.480 with 10 homers and 49 RBI in 269 plate appearances.

He's started 26 of the team's last 32 games, playing mostly at third base but also logging nine appearances at second base in 2019. Thanks to a couple monster games at PNC Park, Moran has compiled striking home/road splits. He's slashing .350/.392/.567 at home and .242/.281/.402 on the road. His improved offensive production is one of Pittsburgh's biggest surprises, and Moran compiled 11 extra-base hits (seven doubles, four homers) in June alone. By comparison, he totaled 10 extra-base hits from June 18 to Sept. 26 in 2018, a span of 226 plate appearances. Moran's defense is adequate at best, but he continues to find the field because of his bat.

Pirates' Colin Moran: Polishes off four hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran went 4-for-5 with three RBI and two runs in Saturday's 12-2 win over the Brewers.

Pirates' Colin Moran: Gets day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cubs.

With the two teams wrapping up their series with a day game and a lefty (Jose Quintana) on the bump for Chicago, Moran will take a seat while Jose Osuna receives a turn at the hot corner. Moran had started each of the past seven games and recorded eight hits, with five coming in the series opener Monday.

Pirates' Colin Moran: Perfect at the plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran went 5-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI and two runs scored in Monday's 18-5 win over the Cubs.

It was Moran's first career five-hit contest as several Pirates ended the night with personal records. The slugging infielder owns a .286/.331/.479 slash line with 25 extra-base hits and 46 RBI in 251 plate appearances.

Pirates' Colin Moran: Sits vs. lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Astros.

As per usual, Moran will take a seat with a lefty in Framber Valdez starting for the opposition. In his place, Jung Ho Kang is starting at third base and hitting eighth.

June 23, 2019 10:36 AM
Pirates' Colin Moran: Sitting versus left-hander
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against San Diego.

Moran will once again make his way to the bench with the Padres starting a southpaw in Joey Lucchesi. The 26-year-old has only one start versus a left-handed pitcher this year. Jose Osuna is starting at third base and batting seventh in his stead.

June 21, 2019 03:44 PM
Pirates' Colin Moran: On bench against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran will sit against lefty Eric Lauer and the Padres on Friday.

Moran still has just a single start against a southpaw this season. Jose Osuna will get the call at third base in his absence.

June 18, 2019 03:48 PM
Pirates' Colin Moran: Sits against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran will hit the bench against lefty Daniel Norris and the Tigers on Tuesday.

Moran hasn't been trusted to start against a southpaw in any game this season. That means he'll likely sit frequently this week, as the Pirates face three more lefties in their next four games. Jung Ho Kang starts at the hot corner Tuesday.

June 15, 2019 03:20 PM
Pirates' Colin Moran: Smashes 10th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer and two RBI singles in an 11-0 victory over the Marlins on Friday.

The 26-year-old had a tough Thursday, going 0-for-4 against the Braves, but overall, he's been hitting a lot better lately. Since May 19, Moran is batting .322 with seven home runs and 24 RBI in 90 at-bats. Overall, he is hitting .275 with 10 long balls, 40 RBI and 23 runs in 189 at-bats this season.

June 12, 2019 05:52 PM
Pirates' Colin Moran: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Braves.

Moran will take a seat on the bench after starting the past seven games and slashing .280/.308/.720 with a trio of homers and six RBI in those contests. In his place, Jung Ho Kang is starting at the hot corner and hitting sixth.

June 9, 2019 07:52 PM
Pirates' Colin Moran: Smashes ninth home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in a 5-3 loss to the Brewers on Saturday.

He didn't get off to the best of starts in 2019, but Moran is hitting .313 with 12 extra-base hits -- including six home runs -- in 30 games since May 8, bringing his season average up to .278. With this hot streak, owners can expect Moran to continue to start at third base despite the return of Jung Ho Kang on Saturday. Moran also has nine homers, 34 RBI and 20 runs in 169 at-bats this season.

June 7, 2019 01:32 AM
Pirates' Colin Moran: Goes deep
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in a 6-1 victory against the Braves on Thursday.

The 26-year-old has turned it on over the last few weeks. Since May 22, Moran is batting .370 with four home runs and 12 RBI in 16 games. Overall, he is hitting .280 with eight homers, 32 RBI and 19 runs in 161 at-bats.

June 6, 2019 11:36 AM
Pirates' Colin Moran: Leaves yard in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a double Wednesday in the Pirates' 7-4 win over the Braves.

Moran didn't initially offer much impact at the plate when he first displaced Jung Ho Kang as the team's primary third baseman in early May, but he seems to have settled in nicely in the past couple of weeks. He's rattled off two-hit performances in three of his last four starts and has maintained a 1.048 OPS over the Pirates' last 14 games. Moran will stick in the lineup for Thursday's series finale as the Pirates' No. 5 hitter.

June 4, 2019 02:52 PM
Pirates' Colin Moran: On bench against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran will sit Tuesday against lefty Max Fried and the Braves.

Moran has only started once against a lefty all season. Kevin Newman gets the start at third base in his absence.

May 30, 2019 01:28 PM
Pirates' Colin Moran: Goes deep in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in a 7-2 victory against the Reds on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old has been a little hot and cold this season. This wasn't a great day for the average, but he hit his first home run in 10 games. The three RBI matched his total from his previous 10 contests. Moran is batting .263 with five home runs, 26 RBI and 11 runs in 51 games this season.

May 26, 2019 07:16 PM
Pirates' Colin Moran: Collects three knocks Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran went 3-for-4 with an RBI single against the Dodgers on Sunday.

He's lifted his batting average from .232 to .270 in the last week, going 10-for-23 since May 19. Pittsburgh designated fellow third baseman Jake Elmore for assignment Sunday, but Moran will still split at-bats with Kevin Newman while Jung Ho Kang (side) continues his rehab assignment.

May 25, 2019 05:32 PM
Pirates' Colin Moran: Sits against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran will sit Saturday against southpaw Hyun-Jin Ryu and the Dodgers.

Moran has started against a lefty just once all season. Kevin Newman gets the call at third base in his place.

May 24, 2019 01:48 AM
Pirates' Colin Moran: Collects three knocks Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moran went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI against Colorado on Thursday.

He's started 11 of the team's last 14 games with Jung Ho Kang (side) on the injured list, batting .280 with one homer and nine RBI. Moran collected a pair of hits with runners in scoring position Thursday, lifting his batting average with runners in scoring position to .395 in 38 at-bats. He figures to see the bulk of playing time over Jake Elmore and Kevin Newman at third base while Kang recovers from injury.
