Pirates' Kevin Newman: Situated on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Royals.

Newman has started five of the last six games at shortstop, slashing .421/.400/.474 with three RBI over that stretch. He'll give way to Jordy Mercer up in the middle in this one, but the rookie is expected to see the lion's share of opportunities at shortstop down the stretch.

Pirates' Kevin Newman: Makes fourth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman will start at second base and bat seventh Sunday against the Braves.

Despite recording only three hits in 27 at-bats since being promoted from Triple-A Indianapolis in mid-August, Newman will pick up his fourth start in a row as the Pirates give Josh Harrison the day off. Harrison is just getting over a hamstring injury, so once he's further removed from that setback, he'll likely settle back into a full-time role. That would result in fewer opportunities at the keystone for the likes of Newman and Adam Frazier.

Pirates' Kevin Newman: Gets start against Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman went 0-for-3 in his first major league start Monday against the Braves.

Newman, who was lifted in the ninth inning for a pinch-hitter, is still looking for his first hit. He filled in capably at second base for the injured Josh Harrison (hamstring), with Adeiny Hechavarria sticking at shortstop. Unless Harrison needs another stint on the disabled list, Newman will likely have to wait until September to see more consistent playing time.

Pirates' Kevin Newman: Promoted to Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman was called up from Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Newman will get his first taste of the big leagues after spending the entirety of the 2018 campaign at the Triple-A level up to this point. Across 109 games with Indianapolis, he slashed .302/.350/.407 with four home runs, 35 RBI and 28 stolen bases. Newman isn't a power-hitter and his defense doesn't provide much additional value, but he's improved his gap power at the plate with 30 doubles and a pair of triples this season. With Jordy Mercer (calf) placed on the DL in a corresponding move, Newman should serve as Adeiny Hechavarria's backup at shortstop.

Pirates' Kevin Newman: Strong season continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman is batting .304/.352/.384 with 19 stolen bases in 276 at-bats for Triple-A Indianapolis.

He's hit over the .300 mark in two of his last three seasons, although an OPS of .736 OPS is actually 13 points better than his career mark (.723). Prior to 2018, he never stole more than 13 bases but he's swiped five bags in his last seven games. He also leads the International League with 46 runs scored. Newman might not put up huge numbers when he hits the big leagues, but he'll likely get an opportunity to play if and when the team trades pending free-agent shortstop, Jordy Mercer.
