Pirates' Kevin Newman: Makes mark in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman entered Saturday's game as a pinch runner and later hit a two-run triple in a 6-4 win over Oakland.

The action was his first since returning from a laceration on his finger. Newman is expected to serve as a backup at both second base and shortstop while also filling in as a fifth outfielder. The 25-year-old has four hits in 12 at-bats for Pittsburgh and batted .233 in 30 Triple-A at-bats in 2019.

Pirates' Kevin Newman: Returns from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman (finger) was reinstated from the injured list Saturday.

Newman had been out since April 11 with a lacerated middle finger. He'll likely fill a utility role now that he's back on the field, with Cole Tucker expected to continue getting regular at-bats at shortstop. Pablo Reyes was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis in a corresponding move.

Pirates' Kevin Newman: Sees time in outfield during rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman (finger) drew starts in center field and left field during rehab games Tuesday and Wednesday at Triple-A Indianapolis. He went a collective 3-for-7 at the plate between the two games.

Prior to kicking off the rehab assignment, Newman hadn't seen any action in the outfield during his professional career. According to Adam Berry of MLB.com, Newman is scheduled to play his natural position (shortstop) in rehab games Friday and Saturday, so his usage in the outfield may have just been an experiment to gauge his viability as a super-utility player. With four outfielders (Corey Dickerson, Lonnie Chisenhall, Starling Marte and Jose Osuna) already on the 10-day injured list and another banged up (Bryan Reynolds), the Pirates could certainly benefit from adding more depth to that group.

Pirates' Kevin Newman: Set for rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Neal Huntington said Sunday that Newman (finger) will likely begin a rehab assignment this week, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Newman, who is returning from a laceration on one of the fingers on his right hand, is expected to play multiple different positions during the rehab assignment and will have his throwing monitored carefully while in the minors. Huntington suggested that the Pirates will "see where we are in two weeks" when referring to Newman's rehab assignment, making it likely that the 25-year-old won't be activated until early May. Though the Pirates will be missing Erik Gonzalez (collarbone) for at least the next two months, Newman might be in line for a utility role once back with the big club if highly touted prospect Cole Tucker continues to perform well as the interim starter at shortstop.

Pirates' Kevin Newman: Fielding grounders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman (finger) fielded balls at shortstop Sunday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Newman is already eligible to return, but it remains unclear when exactly he's expected to do so. When he does get back, it will likely be in a utility role, as recently-promoted prospect Cole Tucker should receive regular at-bats at shortstop.
