Pirates' Tony Watson: Hurt by Giants twice in three days
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watson (5-3) gave up a run on two hits and a walk in the seventh inning against the Giants on Wednesday, sending him to the loss column.

After starter Trevor Williams battled San Francisco's Jeff Samardzija to a draw over six innings, Watson came in and promptly ruined things. He just posted an identical stat line (except for the decision) against the Giants on Monday, and these two games have interrupted the momentum he'd been building by allowing just one run over his prior 12.2 innings. At this point, it doesn't look like there's any chance he'll win his old closing gig back from Felipe Rivero.

Pirates' Trevor Williams: Keeps Giants grounded in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams allowed just a single run on five hits and three walks over six innings against the Giants on Wednesday. He struck out just two and didn't factor into the decision.

Williams has made a living out of keeping the ball on the ground, and this start was a prime example -- of the 18 outs he generated, 13 came via grounder. The sinker-balling righty doesn't generate many strikeouts (6.3 K/9), but he's a decent back-of-the-rotation option who can be streamed in the right matchups. He'll draw a home start against the Reds' mediocre offense on Tuesday.

Pirates' David Freese: Receives off day Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freese is not in the lineup Wednesday versus the D-Backs.

Freese has found a bit of rhythm at the plate recently, tallying seven hits in his last 18 at-bats to raise his batting average on the month to .291. The veteran third baseman will likely continue to be a central piece in the Pittsburgh lineup moving forward, though Josh Harrison takes over at the cornerstone Wednesday.

Pirates' Steven Brault: Bounces back nicely
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brault gave up two hits with a walk and two strikeouts over three scoreless innings of relief during Tuesday's lopsided loss to the Giants.

It was only the second appearance for Brault this season, who gave up two runs in one inning during his season debut. The former minor league starter played damage control with his team already down 10-0, but played the role nicely as a solid follow up to his shaky first outing. He had good numbers with Triple-A Indianapolis this season, recording an ERA of 2.09 over 17 starts, so he should be intriguing as a long reliever with the possibility of a spot start if the need arises.

Pirates' Jameson Taillon: Dismantled by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taillon (6-4) allowed 10 runs (nine earned) on nine hits and a walk while striking out one batter over three-plus innings during Tuesday's 11-3 loss to the Giants.

It was a night to forget for Taillon, who clearly didn't have his best stuff working for him in what turned out to be the worst start of his young major-league career. The 25-year-old breezed through the opening inning before being blistered for a career-high nine earned runs over the following two-plus frames. The disastrous outing raised his season ERA nearly a full point, from 3.08 to 4.03. He'll look to rebound in a big way in his upcoming scheduled start against the Reds next Tuesday.
