Lineup: Jose Tabata RF, Garrett Jones 1B, Andrew McCutchen CF, Ryan Ludwick LF, Neil Walker 2B, Brandon Wood 3B, Ronny Cedeno SS, Mike McKenry C, Charlie Morton P.
Scooby Doo is back behind the plate, otherwise SOP lineup.
- As expected, Tony Watson was called up to replace Paul Maholm, who went on the 15 day DL. Though there are other options, this puts Brad Lincoln in line to take PM's rotation spot for a couple of starts.
- Garrett Jones is hitting .333 with eight doubles, four homers and nine RBIs this month. He must be channeling Adam LaRoche.
- Gerritt Cole is scheduled to meet the Pittsburgh press this afternoon.
