Pirates' Hoy Park: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park is not in the lineup Sunday against the Reds, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The 25-year-old will sit for the second straight game with prospect Oneil Cruz receiving another start in the infield. Park has a .195/.297/.336 slash line in 45 games in his first taste of the big leagues this year.

Pirates' Hoy Park: Not starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Reds.

Even though right-hander Tyler Mahle is starting for Cincinnati on Saturday, Park will get a day off. Michael Chavis will shift to third base while Cole Tuckers starts at the keystone.

Pirates' Hoy Park: On bench against left-hander
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park isn't starting Thursday's game against the Cubs.

Park will get a breather with left-hander Justin Steele starting for the Cubs in Thursday's series finale. Michael Chavis will shift to third base while Cole Tucker starts at the keystone.

Pirates' Hoy Park: Sticks in near-everyday role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park will start at third base and bat eighth Wednesday against the Cubs.

Michael Chavis' return from the injured list Tuesday looked as though it might close Park's path to regular playing time, but Ke'Bryan Hayes' (wrist) move to the IL on Wednesday should allow both Chavis and Park to see steady work over the final five games of the season. Park will remain in the lineup Wednesday for the 11th time in 14 games after getting on base at a .366 clip over the prior 13 contests.

Pirates' Hoy Park: Idle versus lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Reds.

The lefty-hitting Park will get a day off for Monday's make-up game with Cincinnati bringing a southpaw (Reiver Sanmartin) to the hill. Park filled in at third base in Sunday's 6-0 win over the Phillies for a resting Ke'Bryan Hayes, going 1-for-3 with two walks, a double and a run.

Pirates' Hoy Park: On bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Reds, Jake Crouse of MLB.com reports.

Park recorded hits in five of the last six games and hit .250 with a home run, a triple, five RBI, two runs and a stolen base during that time. Wilmer Difo will start at the keystone and bat sixth.

Pirates' Hoy Park: Goes deep in Florida
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk in Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Marlins.

Since a 6-for-63 slump, Park has collected five hits in 18 at-bats with an 8:3 BB:K. The 25-year-old, who has played at second base in each of his last eight appearances, is playing well and figures to see additional starts in the season's final two weeks.

Pirates' Hoy Park: Back on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers.

Park had picked up two starts apiece at second base and third base over the Pirates' past five games, but he'll be back on the bench Wednesday while both of the team's top options at those positions -- Cole Tucker and Ke'Bryan Hayes, respectively -- are included in the lineup. Though he didn't help his case for earning extra work by going 1-for-14 across those four starts, Park's defensive versatility and solid track record as a hitter in the minors should earn him semi-regular work for the Pirates in September.

Pirates' Hoy Park: Knocks second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-5 loss to the Cubs.

The infielder hit the second of back-to-back home runs for Pittsburgh in the fifth inning. He filled in for Ke'Bryan Hayes (hand) at third base Friday, but Park figures to fill a utility role most of the time. He's slashing just .192/.244/.329 with two home runs, six RBI and six runs scored across 80 plate appearances between the Pirates and the Yankees.

Pirates' Hoy Park: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates recalled Park from Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Park had been added to the taxi squad in anticipation of a call-up when rosters expanded Wednesday, but he joins the Pirates a day sooner to replace Michael Chavis (elbow). Park, who has hit .200 with four doubles, a home run and five RBI in 18 games since being dealt to Pittsburgh, figures to get semi-regular playing time in the infield until Chavis returns from the injured list.

Pirates' Hoy Park: Call-up imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park has joined the Pirates' taxi squad in Chicago and is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis either Tuesday or Wednesday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Along with Park, another utility player in Phillip Evans has reported to Chicago ahead of the six-game set in the Windy City with the White Sox and Cubs. Whether Park or Evans is formally added to the roster Tuesday will likely hinge on the statuses of Michael Chavis (elbow) and Ke'Bryan Hayes (hand), who are currently being labeled as day-to-day but may require stints on the injured list. If neither Chavis nor Hayes is deactivated Tuesday, the Pirates would have the ability to activate both Park and Evans to the roster Wednesday without making a corresponding move. All MLB active rosters will expand from 26 to 28 men Wednesday for the final month of the regular season.

Pirates' Hoy Park: Sent down amid slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday.

Park struggled mightily at the plate recently, as he went 0-for-20 with a walk and seven strikeouts across his last seven appearances. The 25-year-old had hit .300 with a homer and four doubles across his first 11 games after he was called up at the beginning of August, and he'll attempt to right the ship with the minor-league club. His demotion will make room for Anthony Alford (back), who was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Monday.

Pirates' Hoy Park: Slump continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Friday's 4-0 win over St. Louis.

After batting leadoff or third in his first 12 starts for Pittsburgh, Park hit eighth against the Cardinals. He's 4-for-37 with a 2:14 BB:K in his last 11 games. Yoshi Tsutsugo, who homered in a pinch-hitting appearance Friday, could steal time from him in the outfield.

Pirates' Hoy Park: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park is not starting Tuesday against the Dodgers.

Park will get his second game off in the last three games after serving as the club's leadoff hitter in each of the seven contests prior to Sunday. Kevin Newman will man shortstop as Ben Gamel, Bryan Reynolds and Gregory Polanco start in the outfield from left to right.

Pirates' Hoy Park: Whiff in lone plate appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park struck out in a pinch-hitting appearance Sunday against Milwaukee.

After a red-hot start, the 25-year-old has cooled off with four hits in 23 at-bats. Park, who batted leadoff and started each of the team's last six games prior to Sunday, will continue to move around the diamond on defense, especially following the return of left fielder, Ben Gamel (hamstring). Park has shown the ability to go on a two-or-three game hitting binge, but pencilling him in for every day production might be a mistake at this stage of his career.

August 15, 2021 01:08 PM
Pirates' Hoy Park: Gets Sunday off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.

Park will take a seat after starting and serving as the Pirates' leadoff man in each of the past seven games. Ben Gamel (hamstring) -- who was reinstated from the 10-day injured list earlier Sunday -- will replace Park as the team's table setter in the series finale.

Pirates' Hoy Park: Knocks first career homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Tuesday against the Cardinals.

Park led off the fourth inning by taking J.A. Happ yard for his first career homer. Since joining the Pirates on Aug. 1, Hoy has collected nine hits in 32 plate appearances -- including four doubles -- while striking out at only a 21.9 percent clip. Also notable was the fact that Park hit atop the order even with a lefty on the mound Tuesday.

Pirates' Hoy Park: Looking good at plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a walk in Thursday's 7-4 loss to Cincinnati.

He started for the fourth time in five games and batted leadoff for the third straight game. Park has already hit three doubles and is 6-for-17 for Pittsburgh. The 25-year-old has also shown good versatility. He was set to start at second base Thursday before taking over in left field for Ben Gamel (hamstring), who was a late scratch. While Park's playing time isn't guaranteed, he should see steady action in the short term, provided he keeps hitting.

Pirates' Hoy Park: Contract selected by Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park's contract was selected by the Pirates on Saturday, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Park appeared in three games at Triple-A Indianapolis after he was traded from the Yankees to the Pirates on Monday, and he'll now join the major-league club ahead of Saturday's game against the Phillies. The 25-year-old has slashed .304/.455/.530 with 10 homers, 45 runs, 29 RBI and eight stolen bases at the Triple-A level this year.

Pirates' Hoy Park: Shipped to Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Park and Diego Castillo were traded from the Yankees to the Pirates on Monday in exchange for Clay Holmes.

Park was outrighted off the Yankees' roster last week after making just a single MLB plate appearance, so the Pirates clearly don't value him all that highly, as they missed the chance to pick him up for free. The 25-year-old received seven figures when he signed in 2014 and was a notable prospect for a few years before stalling out in the upper levels. However, this year he's lit up opposing pitchers for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, hitting .327/.475/.567 with 10 homers and eight steals in 48 games. A .397 BABIP helped him get to that line, but he also walked as often as he struck out. He now finds himself in an organization where it should be much easier to carve out a role, though how exactly the Pirates plan on using him is unclear for now.
