Short & Sweet: Lineup, News & Notes

RHP A.J. Burnett (12-3, 3.52 ERA) goes against RHP Casey Coleman (0-1, 7.32 ERA). Well, missed Dempster again and got another call-up. Didn't work out so well for Pittsburgh last night. The game begins at 8:05 and will shown by Root Sports. Oh, and you'll probably need a scorecard for both clubs.

The Lineup: Starling Marte LF, Travis Snider RF, Andrew McCutchen CF, Garrett Jones 1B, Neil Walker 2B, Pedro Alvarez 3B, Rod Barajas C, Clint Barmes SS, AJ Burnett P.

  • RHP Daniel McCutchen took Brad Lincoln’s spot in the bullpen, even if just for the day. That's a pretty conservative move, but with the starting pitching being banged around, maybe the FO wanted the security blanket of an inning eater. Drew Sutton was DFA'ed to open D-Mac's roster space. Chad Qualls will report tomorrow and take someone's place - probably D-Mac's - and then get bumped when Juan Cruz returns from the DL.
  • State College OF Tyler Gaffney was named the New York-Penn League Player of the Week. He batted .591 w/2 triples, 2 doubles & 4 RBI.
