Clint's getting used to having Kang a swing or two; today he's giving Jordy a blow. The lineup has been doctored, too - The Kid moves to second and Jay-Hay drops to the seven hole while his bat remains in the deep freeze.
- Andrew Lambo was placed on the DL (retro to 4 May) because of plantar fasciitis in his left foot and Pittsburgh called up Steve Lombardozzi. The switch-hitter was batting .379 and has the versatility Hurdle looks for, having played both corner outfields and 3B-SS-2B for Indianapolis. He was added to the 40-man roster w/o any corresponding moves needed.
- Jayson Stark of ESPN has the Bucs included in his piece "...Five Contenders Facing Critical Questions."
- John Dreker of Pirates Prospects reported that Indianapolis' Nick Kingham called for the trainer in his game this afternoon and went to the locker room; we'll see what develops from that regarding the Bucco hotshot.
