Yesterday: A day of rest; no game scheduled.
- As it gets closer to rug-cutting time, here are the players on the 40-man who are out of options and either have to make the team or risk being lost: OF Bryce Brentz, C Elias Diaz, P George Kontos, P AJ Schugel & P Nik Turley. Diaz and Kontos are locks to go north, Brentz is on the bubble and Shugel (shoulder) & Turley (post-TJ) injured.
- Anthony Castrovince of MLB. com picks each team's most indispensable player ("...whose long-term absence or major performance decline would have their clubs scrambling, if not stumbling.") and selects Starling Marte as the Buccos' MIP.
- 2B Dilson Herrera has cleared waivers after being outrighted by the Reds. He was once the Pirates next big thing.
