Lineup & Stuff

Get away day from St. Louis; game time 1:45 PM. The pitchers will be Kevin Correia and Chris Carpenter. The game will be shown on Root Sports, with coverage beginning at 1 PM.

Lineup: Jose Tabata LF, Neil Walker 2B, Andrew McCutchen CF, Lyle Overbay 1B, Pedro Alvarez 3B, Ryan Doumit C, Garrett Jones RF, Josh Rodriguez SS and Kevin Correia P.

-- J-Rod is in today's lineup; he was the last guy on the 25-man roster to hit the field when he pinch-ran yesterday; this will be his first MLB start.

-- Pittsburgh released RHP Craig Hansen, who has been recovering from a nerve condition. He was part of the Jay Bay deal; Bryan Morris is the only player left from that trade. The rest were all released, so it basically ended up as a straight Bay-for-Morris swap.

-- The Pirates formalized the Indy roster; no surprises (especially as all the other rosters had been announced). Brad Lincoln isn't on it yet, and the roster will change when Chris Snyder and Joe Beimel are ready for duty and players need sent down.
