Two injury updates from McKechnie Field this morning: **Chase d’Arnaud injured his left thumb during rundown drills this morning. He will be replaced today in the lineup by Ivan De Jesus Jr. D’Arnaud said it was too early to tell how serious the injury was, but that he didn’t think it was going to be serious. **Anderson Hernandez hurt his right shoulder last night. There’s no timetable for his return.

Pittsburgh Pirates: Wasted money

(Follow me on Twitter @jim_krug) One of the consistent excuses to explain the Pittsburgh Pirates’ lack of competitiveness over the past two decades is the “small market, low payroll” answer.  That in itself should frustrate to fans, because when Pirates’ ownership financed the building of $216,000,000 PNC Park- a large portion of which using taxpayer dollars- fans were...

A.J. Burnett picked off a runner in the first inning today. It’s starting to become a familiar sight this Spring to see a Pirates pitcher picking off a runner at first. On Thursday, James McDonald started the game by allowing a single, then erased the runner with a pickoff to first. Today, A.J. Burnett started the game the same way. Darin Mastroianni started the game with a single...

Pirates Notebook: Hurdle Believes Marte Could Be a Dynamic Leadoff Hitter

Starling Marte went 2-for-2 with a walk and two stolen bases tonight. The Pirates could use a lot of nights like tonight from Starling Marte during the 2013 season. The outfielder led off the game with a single, after working the count in a long at-bat. He then went on to steal second, and moved to third when the throw from the catcher went wild. One play later Marte scored on a...

WBC Notes: Taillon Looks Good Against Team USA

Jameson Taillon got the start for Team Canada against Team USA in a crucial game. He was on a 65 pitch limit due to WBC restrictions on each pitcher. The winner of this game advances to the second round, the loser goes home. Taillon started the first inning with a ground out from Jimmy Rollins. He was throwing 95 MPH early, throwing mostly fastballs as the shadows in front of home...

Brandon Inge is like a quarter stuck between the couch cushions or something, will probably ...

This is seriously how Tom Singer's story about Brandon Inge at Pirates.com starts:  Clint Hurdle may finally have his Jose Oquendo. This, if you'd forgotten or never knew or never cared, is Jose Oquendo. It's not so much that the comparison to Oquendo is out of line, it's that I can't figure out why anyone would go looking for a modern Jose Oquendo...

Roster Watch: Alex Presley

My Dad absolutely loves Alex Presley.  Presley isn’t unlike the Josh Harrison‘s of the world in that he plays hard and is a bit of an overachiever.  Commendable qualities for sure. He also hates being referred to as Elvis in any way. That’s unfortunate because we have this photoshop in our library.  Therefore we have…
