    Its a crushing blow. Without Marte and Kang I just don't see how the Pirates have the offense to compete. Those are the two best hitters on the team. The Pirates made what was in my mind a big mistake this offseason by not bringing him some sort of extra OF (even a quality NRI type). Not doing this has put the team in a position where there isn't an actual outfielder to replace Marte with.

    I'm assuming Osuna gets the call and the Pirates somehow replace Marte with Frazier in the lineup (whether its playing him in the OF or Bell in the OF and bumping a bunch of people around).

    Best guess of a lineup is

    Frazier, RF
    Bell, 1B
    Cutch, CF
    Polanco, LF
    Freese, 3B
    Cervelli, C
    Harrison, 2B
    Mercer, SS

    That still isn't terrible but I don't see how its good enough.
