Dillon Gee, the only undefeated regular starting pitcher left in the NL, and Charlie Morton hook up tonight at 7:05 PM.  Root Sports will air the game.

The lineup for tonight is Jose Tabata LF, Josh Harrison 3B, Andrew McCutchen CF,  Neil Walker 2B, Lyle Overbay 1B, Matt Diaz RF, Ronny Cedeno SS, Dusty Brown C, Charlie Morton P.
  • RHP Evan Meek was placed on 15-day DL with shoulder tendinitis.  RHP Tim Wood was called up from Indy to replace him, while C Chris Snyder was switched from the 15 to the 60-day DL to clear space. Wood, who pitched for Florida (1-1-1, 4.32 ERA) in 2009-10, had a 2.96 ERA/13 saves at Indy, with 24 Ks in 24-1/3 frames and a WHIP of 0.904
  • Dan Connelly of the Orioles Insider doesn't think Oriole C Jake Fox will land in Pittsburgh (EDIT - he's right; Fox was outrighted to AAA).  Mike Axisa of MLB Trade Rumors lists a couple of other possible candidates to bolster the catching corp.  The Pirates have to weigh their choices carefully; Jason Jaramillo is due back by the end of the month, Dewey by the end of July, and Chris Snyder can't return until at least August now.
  • Jared Hughes was promoted to AAA Indy from Altoona, where the 25 year old was 3-4 with a 4.09 ERA.
