Lineup Card

-- James McDonald and Madison Bumgarner face one other tonight at 7:05 PM. And who woulda thunk those two up-and-comers would be a combined 0-5 with less than a week to go in April? No TV again tonight; that hockey team is playing again.

-- The lineup is: Andrew McCutchen CF, Jose Tabata LF, Matt Diaz RF, Neil Walker 2B, Steve Pearce 1B, Chris Snyder C, Pedro Alvarez 3B, Brandon Wood SS, James McDonald P.

-- Xavier Paul hasn't been sighted yet, so it appears that the roster will remain intact for one more night. Paul is allowed 72 hours to report.

-- If you'd like a prospect snapshot, Marc Hulet of Fangraphs has the scoop for Pittsburgh and the whole Central Division.

-- As feared, Bryan Morris was put on the minor league DL (which can be terminated after 7 days) for his oblique strain, tweeted Colin Dunlap of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.
