The Pirates have traded Chris Dickerson to the Indians for a PTBNL or cash. Dickerson is in the midst of a very solid season in AAA and I think there is a legit argument to be made he'd be a better fit for the team as a 4th OF than Snider but as long as the Pirates plan on carrying Snider there really is no place for him (not really even in AAA with Tabata, Decker and Rojas).
Cole is going to the DL tomorrow and Cumpton is coming up to make a start. The way the schedule falls though this may be the only start Cole misses. If it isn't this will probably be the only start Cumpton makes anyway because Liriano is set to return after the All Star break.
Morton out pitched Wainwright all night and was probably his best game I have ever seen him pitch. That is why is was so heartbreaking to see Fat Adams walk it off. I really despise EVERY team in the NL central.
Liriano is going to make a start before the All Star break. So the Pirates will have 6 starters for these next 6 games I guess. Cole on the other hand doesn't have a timetable but will reportedly go on a rehab stint this time.
