The #Pirates have claimed INF/OF Oscar Tejeda off waivers from Boston and have assigned him to Double-A Altoona; LHP Doug Slaten DFA.

It’s pretty amazing that the Pirates have cut ties with two left-handed reliever in two days, but I guess that just shows how much they thought of them. Yesterday, Daniel Moskos was DFA’d to make...
From Tuesday night:
Luckily, the Pirates did a CT scan on Gerrit Cole and the results came back negative for a concussion. His only symptom is a bruised jaw.

Chase Utley homered in his first at-bat of the season, but the Pittsburgh Pirates spoiled his return by connecting three times and beating the Philadelphia Phillies 11-7 Wednesday night.
Michael McKenry hit a three-run homer and Andrew McCutchen and Casey McGehee also went deep for Pittsburgh.
Utley missed the first 76 games this year because of a chronic problem in both knees...
I didn't see most of this one when it happened, but I knew that the Pirates lost a close game and when I came home, literally the first thing I saw on my TV was a highlight of Mike McKenry getting thrown out at home plate by a mile and a half on a sac fly in the seventh inning. Of course, the first thing I did after that was bring the box score up to try and get some context...
Pirates (38-33) at Phillies (34-40)
7:05 PM EST–Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia

The bad news is tonight’s game was rough. ”They outplayed us again tonight,” Clint Hurdle said after the game. The Pirates left 17 runners on base, blowing far too many scoring opportunities. Erik Bedard gave up 4 runs, and Juan Cruz gave up 1. The Pirates’ first 2 hitters, Jose Tabata and Neil Walker, were [...]

In the March 5 BP First Take, I wrote, “On the heels of his first All-Star Game appearance last season, [Andrew McCutchen] has the potential to contend for MVP honors in the near future.” That wasn’t exactly the boldest of predictions, given McCutchen’s talent and career path, and it appears the near future has arrived.
After a relatively slow start...
