Pittsburgh Pirates Rotation Depth Being Tested At Minor League Level

Easily the biggest strength of the Pittsburgh Pirates thus far this season has been the work of the rotation. The starting staff has been among the best not just in the National League, but all of baseball – keeping the team afloat while the offense tries to find its groove. But while their success of their rotation – especially at the top – has been nice, the idea of going...

Casey Sadler brilliant in first major league start

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports When a pitcher is recalled for a spot start, it can almost feel bitter-sweet. When you get a call to make an emergency start, it is usually because of an injury to the expected starter. You may be excited to get your opportunity, but it came at the expense of the original starter. Pittsburgh Pirates’ emergency starter Casey Sadler attested to that...

Game 6: Pirates 10 Brewers 2

There was a brief moment in which I was sure this game was headed in the opposite direction. After Casey Sadler mostly cruised through the Brewers’ lineup on the first pass, he gave up a hard-hit double to Hector Gomez in the eight spot. When Carlos Gomez came up shortly after, Sadler barely got a 91 mph sinker past him on the first pitch of the at-bat, with Gomez swinging for...

Heading home happy

What might have been heading for a poor finish to a bad opening week turned around drastically on Sunday, and all of a sudden 2-4 feels a lot better considering it includes a series win at Miller Park heading into the home opener. Casey Sadler did an admirable job filling in for Francisco Liriano, going five and allowing just a two run shot to Carlos Gomez. The Pirates looked like...

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Andrew McCutchen homered in his return to Pittsburgh's lineup, Neil Walker also hit a three-run homer and the Pirates routed the Milwaukee Brewers 10-2 Sunday. McCutchen took himself out of Friday night's game because of soreness in his left knee and didn't play Saturday.

The Sunday morning roundup

I didn’t really have much time to spend online yesterday after flying into Pittsburgh in the morning, so I was a little surprised to be greeted by my uncle yesterday afternoon with, “Did you see the lineup? Harrison’s leading off, Worley’s batting ninth, and everything’s crazy in between!” He was right, of course, with Jung Ho Kang making his first big league start and...

Sadler, Sanchez each sharp, Pirates beat Blue Jays

DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) Starting pitcher Casey Sadler and Aaron Sanchez each threw hitless inning Sunday and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Toronto Blue Jays 1-0. Sadler struck out three without a walk for the Pirates. Toronto had just one hit until getting two more in the ninth. Sanchez fanned three and walked one. In his previous exhibition start, also against the Pirates, the hard...

Pirates announce full September call-up list

When the Pirates announced that Tony Sanchez and Stolmy Pimentel would join the team on Labor Day, it was understood that there would be a number of additional call-ups in the next 24 hours after Indianapolis’s season officially ended with yesterday’s game. They announced the rest of the call-ups today and while there were two obvious call-ups (Gregory Polanco and Jeff Locke...

This looks like the beginning of a long night

This is the last Pirates/Tigers game scheduled to be played in PNC Park this year, and the Pirates and Tigers are both locked in razor-thin playoff battles. There is also quite a bit of rain in the forecast for Pittsburgh this evening. This could be a long night. The Pirates made a roster move this afternoon in anticipation of that possibility; Casey Sadler was sent down after pitching...

Cutch to DL; Roster still a mess

The Pirates finally placed Andrew McCutchen on the DL today, confirming that leaving him on the roster for the past week was a mistake. Of course, the move was retroactive to August 4th, meaning he will be eligible to come return on the 19th, but the Pirates wasted his roster spot for six games – and an extra man might have come in handy during three losses in that stretch. Meanwhile...

Pirates put McCutchen on 15-day DL with broken rib

  The Pittsburgh Pirates have put star center fielder Andrew McCutchen on the 15-day disabled list because of a broken rib after waiting a week to see how it would heal. The Pirates promoted right-hander Casey Sadler from Triple-A Indianapolis before Monday's game against the Detroit Tigers. McCutchen's move was listed as Aug. 4, the day after he left a game at Arizona with pain...

Andrew McCutchen finally lands on the disabled list in advance of Tigers series

After nearly a full week of playing with a 23-man roster, the Pirates announced before the game that Andrew McCutchen will be placed on the 15-day DL retroactive to last Monday, freeing up a roster spot for Casey Sadler to help shore up the bullpen. Presumably Sadler will only be around until the weekend, when Gerrit Cole seems likely to rejoin the rotation after his strong rehab...

Cubs 7, Pirates 3

The much-hyped debut of Gregory Polanco began and ended on a sour note, as the Bucs lost another starting pitcher…and the game. And Polanco didn’t have much of an evening, going 1 for 5 with a costly misplay in right field. The one hit was a beauty, though: Your browser does not support iframes. …and Andrew McCutchen followed it with a homer: Your browser does not support...

Bryan Morris traded to Marlins

The @Pirates today traded pitcher Bryan Morris to the @Marlins for the 39th overall selection (competitive balance A) in the 2014 Draft. — Pittsburgh Pirates (@Pirates) June 1, 2014 Seems like a good move for the Bucs and a head-scratcher for the Fish.  Morris – despite good looking “stuff”- has been simply awful recently (anyone who has watched won’t be fooled by the...

Series Wrap-Up: Two wins, but…

  Sunday’s quest for a sweep failed miserably, but the Pirates won 2 out of 3. That’s a start — it’s the first series win for the Bucs since the third series of the year, April 10th against the Cubs. The two comeback wins were very exciting and it was great to see the team finally show some heart late in games, especially on offense. That said, this still wasn’t all that...

Pirates 6, Blue Jays 5

What a win! Who knows if it’s a spark that will lead to better things to come or just a blip on the screen…but for now, who cares? The Pirates desperately needed something good to happen as they were spiraling towards yet another frustrating loss. Gerrit Cole‘s outing was pretty disappointing and despite putting 14 hits on the board through eight innings, they only had three...

One foot in front of the other

If you remember back to last Sunday, what I wanted was for the Pirates to play a solid game from start to finish, get a nice, comfortable lead, and win by a score of, say, 4-1. They finally did more or less just that yesterday, nearly a week after I was hoping for it. I didn’t really want Francisco Liriano to leave the game with flu symptoms and scare the crap out of all Pirate...

The first cuts of the spring: Jameson Taillon and a few others

The Pirates made their first spring training cuts this morning, and as usually happens, there's no surprising news to be found in this round of demotions. Jameson Taillon is the big name being re-assigned to minor league camp today, and Casey Sadler, Carlos Paulino, Joely Rodriguez, Matt Hague, and Alen Hanson are all following him. For the most part, I don't know if we'll see any...
