RHP Joel Hanrahan reinstated from Bereavement List…RHP Daniel McCutchen on D.L. with left oblique strain; suffered in BP Saturday.
— Pittsburgh Pirates (@Pirates) May 13, 2012
Again with the injuries that do not really make any sense.
Daniel McCutchen was called up prior to Thursday’s game against Washington to replace Joel Hanrahan, who was placed on the Bereavement List. McCutchen did not pitch in any of the three games he was on the active roster, but was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained oblique.
According to the Pirates, McCutchen suffered the injury during batting practice on Saturday.

Everyone but Bradenton in action today.
Norfolk 2, Indianapolis 0 – Rudy Owens started and gave up just 2 runs over 8 innings. He struck out 2 and walked 2. Chase d’Arnaud was 1 for 3 with a double and a walk. Gorkys Hernandez went 1 for 4 with a double. Jeff Clement was 1 for 3 with a walk. Jordy Mercer went 1 for 3 to extend his hitting streak to 14 games.
Erie 4, Altoona...
With Erik Bedard out until at least Wednesday with his back spasms, Brad Lincoln will get a spot start for the Pirates in Miami tonight. Lincoln's been pretty impressive in a handful of relief appearances this year; in 14 1/3 innings, he has 16 strikeouts and held the opposition to just nine hits, giving him a 0.62 ERA and a FIP of 2.91. Lincoln's struggled with missing bats...

You can’t ask for any more out of a spot starter. Brad Lincoln, who has dominated in a long relief role, was able to carry over that success in his first start of the year. Over six innings, he gave up just two runs on four hits and one walk while striking...
PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Andrew McCutchen had a solo home run among his four hits, Jose Tabata also homered and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Houston Astros 5-2 on Saturday night.
Charlie Morton (2-3) rebounded from consecutive poor starts and allowed one earned run in six innings, and the Pirates matched a season high for runs at PNC Park, winning for the first time in their past three...

It's always amazing to me how quickly an exciting ending wipes away everything frustrating about a baseball game. After Neil Walker and Andrew McCutchen hit back-to-back doubles in the first inning to put the Pirates ahead 1-0, Wandy Rodriguez faced the minimum number of hitters in the second through eighth innings. That resulted in a 2-1 Astros lead going into the bottom of...
Hey Nate McLouth…. That guy is awful. He should be cut, tomorrow. I’m not sure why “The Color Purple” himself Clint Hurdle has him batting second. I don’t want it to seem like it’s only Nate’s fault. It definitely isn’t. But he is so bad. The Pirates acquired Jeff Larish… If he is anything more [...]
That took a bit of the sting off of the previous loss. Pirates need the rubber game though. Do the Pirates even have a Sunday lineup? First Pitch: 1:35 PM EST Where to Watch: Root Sports, MLB.TV, FS-H Wandy Rodriguez, LHP (33) Can we please make something very clear right off the top. Wandy [...]
Seeing free agent signings fall flat is nothing new to the Pittsburgh Pirates. After all, this franchise has endured the likes of Adam Laroche, Jeromy Burnitz, Joe Randa, Raul Mondesi and, of course, Derek Bell. While Clint Barmes's poor play hasn't reached the point where it could be considered a "saga", I still believe it belongs in the conversation of worst...
In the first of a two game series, the Pittsburgh Pirates took Monday’s game over the Miami Marlins by a final score of 3-2. The loss prevented the Marlins from reaching three games over .500, something they have yet to do this season. This result also means Miami will be unable to win a fourth consecutive series as the best they can hope for now is a series split.
