Top Pirates News

  • Pirates' Henry Davis: Out of Tuesday's lineup

    Davis is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

    Davis is 2-for-19 with eight strikeouts over his past six games and will sit Tuesday for the third time in Pittsburgh's last four contests. The young catcher has a .510 OPS for the season and could be in danger of losing his roster spot when Yasmani Grandal (foot) completes his rehab assignment. Joey Bart is starting behind the plate and batting eighth Tuesday.

  • Pirates' Oneil Cruz: Collects three hits

    Cruz went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI on Monday against the Brewers.

    Cruz hit eighth in the order for the third straight game against a right-handed pitcher as the Pirates seek to get him on track at the plate. He showed some reasons for optimism with his three-hit performance, highlighted by a two-RBI single in the sixth inning that gave the team some insurance runs. Most importantly, Cruz struck out only once after punching out multiple times in seven of his previous 10 games.

  • Pirates' Andrew McCutchen: Blasts solo shot in win

    McCutchen went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's win over Milwaukee.

    McCutchen received his first start in the leadoff spot Monday night and made the most of it. He opened with a 414-foot home run off Joe Ross, spurring the Pirates to victory. The 37-year-old added two singles later in the game for his first three-hit effort of the season. McCutchen has started 10 of the last 13 games, batting .231 (9-for-39) with two homers, seven runs and four RBI.

  • Pirates' David Bednar: Secures third save

    Bednar picked up the save Monday against the Brewers. He pitched one shutout inning, allowing one hit and no walks with one strikeout.

    Bednar appeared to be back to his All-Star form Monday night, locking down his third save without issue. The one hit he allowed came via an infield single from the speedy Jackson Chourio. Despite sporting an unsightly 10.13 ERA, Bednar is firmly cemented as the Pittsburgh closer.

  • Pirates' Jared Jones: Shines bright in victory

    Jones (2-2) earned the win Monday against the Brewers, allowing one run, four hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out seven.

    Jones continued the impressive start to his career Monday night, striking out seven Brewers by generating an astounding 25 whiffs. The 22-year-old rookie has been electric to start the season, tossing a 2.79 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 38:4 K:BB over 29 innings. The only question about Jones at this point appears to be how many innings the Pirates will let him throw this year. His next start is scheduled on the road against the Giants.

  • Pirates' Jared Triolo: Out of lineup Monday

    Triolo isn't included in the lineup for Monday's game against the Brewers.

    Triolo's streak of seven consecutive starts will come to an end Monday with Alika Williams getting the nod at the keystone. The time off could prove beneficial for Triolo, who has gone 2-for-19 at the dish over his last six games.

  • Pirates' Quinn Priester: Getting second start

    Priester is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Brewers at PNC Park.

    Even though he was lit up for five runs (four earned) on seven hits -- including three home runs -- and one walk across 4.1 innings in his 2024 MLB debut this past Friday against the Red Sox, Priester will get at least one more chance to prove that he belongs in the big-league rotation. He'll have the benefit of making a second straight start at home, though the more forgiving dimensions of PNC Park didn't do him many favors this past weekend when it came to keeping the ball in the yard. If Priester is unable to show improvement Wednesday and ends up being sent back to the minors, top prospect Paul Skenes could be next in line to fill the No. 5 spot in Pittsburgh's rotation.

  • Pirates' David Bednar: Tosses clean inning

    Bednar tossed one clean inning, striking out one during Sunday's 6-1 loss to the Red Sox.

    While the Pirates were down five heading into the ninth, the much-needed nondescript outing was noteworthy for Bednar who had allowed nine runs over his first six innings of the season including seven runs over the last two innings coming into Sunday's action. Bednar's hold on the closer's job in PIttsburgh remains strong as Sunday's outing will hopefully serve to get him back on the right track.

  • Pirates' Martin Perez: Labors through first loss

    Perez (1-1) picked up the loss Sunday against the Red Sox, allowing four runs on six hits over four innings. He walked four and struck out seven.

    The day began with a seven pitch walk which set the tone for the Boston effort against Perez, who was consistently battled throughout his outing and labored through 91 pitches over four-plus innings. Perez came into the game with just seven walks and 16 strikeouts through four starts spanning 24.2 innings, but uncharacteristically walked four and struck out seven on the day, leading to the elevated pitch count. Despite allowing eight baserunners through four, Perez held the Red Sox in check by allowing just two runs. He was then pulled after allowing the first two runners to reach base in the fifth with a one-out single by Reese McGuire off reliever Ryder Ryan plating both inherited runners and saddling Perez with four earned runs allowed. Perez will look to rebound in his next start, tentatively slated to take place during next weekend's series in San Francisco against the Giants.

  • Pirates' Michael Taylor: Won't start Sunday

    Taylor is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

    Taylor got the start for the first two games of the series, going 2-for-7 while striking out three times. Connor Joe will return to the starting lineup in right field while Jack Suwinski moves to center field.

  • Pirates' Connor Joe: Starting Sunday

    Joe is starting in right field and batting in the leadoff spot for Sunday's game against the Red Sox, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

    Joe returns to the lineup for Sunday's contest after not starting in the first two games of the series. Joe is slashing .288/.391/.475 with two home runs and 12 RBI to start the season.

  • Pirates' Rowdy Tellez: Providing minimal power

    Tellez went 0-for-3 Saturday against the Red Sox.

    Tellez went hitless for the fourth time in his last six starts and is hitting only .207 overall across 65 plate appearances for the season. To make matters worse, he has only one extra-base hit on the campaign, failing to provide pop in the middle of the Pittsburgh lineup. Already sitting against lefties, it's possible that Tellez also starts to sit against righties due to the solid start to the season for Connor Joe, plus the eventual return of Yasmani Grandal (foot).

  • Pirates' Oneil Cruz: Slips down order

    Cruz went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base Saturday against the Red Sox.

    Cruz also struck out twice, and he has now punched out multiple times in eight of his last 10 starts. He's hit .095 in that span, though he did manage to chip his second stolen base of the season Saturday. As a result of his struggles, Cruz dropped to eighth in the lineup after exclusively batting as the team's leadoff hitter against right-handed pitching through the first 11 matchups of the campaign.

  • Pirates' Mitch Keller: Tagged with second loss

    Keller (2-2) took the loss Saturday, giving up four runs on five hits and four walks over six innings as the Pirates fell 4-2 to the Red Sox. He struck out four.

    After Boston scored twice in the first inning, Keller settled down and seemed to be cruising until Masataka Yoshida clubbed a two-run homer off him in the sixth. The right-hander has lasted at least six innings in three straight starts, but his overall results to begin 2024 haven't been impressive as he carries a 4.80 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 25:11 K:BB through 30 innings. Keller will look to tighten things up in his next outing, which lines up to come at home next week against the Brewers.
