Pirates' Johan Oviedo: Takes loss in quality start
Oviedo (4-3) gave up two earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out four over six innings to take the loss in a 2-1 defeat to the Cardinals on Friday.
Oviedo held his own against the postseason-bound Cardinals, but he received only one run of support and was forced to settle for the loss despite posting his second quality start in a row. Oviedo has become a regular part of the Pirates rotation since he was called up in September and has an ERA of 3.04 in six starts with his new team. He is tentatively expected to make his next start in a rematch against the Cardinals next week. As it will be the final game of the regular season, the Cardinals could be resting their starters in anticipation of their opening postseason series.... See More ... See Less

Pirates' Jason Delay: Not in lineup Friday
Delay isn't starting Friday against the Cardinals.
Delay has now missed three of the last four starts behind the plate for the Pirates and seems to be at risk of losing his starting role to Jose Godoy, who will start and bat eighth. The 27-year-old catcher has just a .200 OPS over the last seven days.... See More ... See Less

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Blows save chance
De Jong allowed three earned runs on four hits to blow the save Wednesday against the Reds.

He's been effective for long stretches of the season but has a 5.27 ERA and 1.61 WHIP across 13.2 innings in September. He isn't likely to see save additional save chances with David Bednar back from the injured list.... See More ... See Less

He induced 10 groundball outs and also generated 11 swinging strikes across 90 total pitches.

Burrows (shoulder) was reinstated from the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Indianapolis on Wednesday, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports.
Burrows hasn't pitched in a game in a month, and it's not yet clear whether he'll pitch in Wednesday's regular-season finale at Indianapolis. Regardless of whether he takes the mound Wednesday, it appears as though he's moved past his shoulder injury ahead of the offseason.... See More ... See Less
