Daily Scorecard & Notes

Today's Scorecard:

Pitchers: Charlie Morton (3 innings), Brad Lincoln (two innings), Tyler Yates (one inning), Jeff Locke (one or two innings) and Cesar Valdez (one).

Lineup: Andrew McCutchen CF, Steve Pearce 1B, Matt Diaz LF, Pedro Alvarez DH, Garrett Jones RF, Garrett Atkins 3B, Ronny Cedeno SS, Brian Friday 2B and Jason Jaramillo C.

-- Joe Beimel stayed still long enough to get one image on his short-lived MRI exam yesterday; it showed no damage and he'll soft toss today.

-- Scott Olsen will throw Saturday as his nagging hammy injury puts him further behind the pack competing for the fifth spot in the rotation. It's hoped that he'll be game-ready by next week.

-- Evan Meek is expected to pitch in games next week. He was held out for a week as a precaution stemming from a sore calf.

-- Kevin Hart still isn't cleared to throw yet. He's looking more and more like a DL candidate when camp breaks. Likewise no word on Jose Ascanio and his sore elbow.
