Pirates promote Phil Irwin, option Josh Harrison

J. Meric

This is today's gamethread. The Pirates have promoted Phil Irwin, who will start today, and optioned Josh Harrison. We'd previously thought that the Bucs might option Bryan Morris to make way for Irwin, but instead they're sending down a position player, perhaps because they've got Brandon Inge about to finish a rehab assignment. After the game, it's possible they'll send down Irwin and promote Inge.

Here's the Pirates' lineup. Note that Travis Snider bats second.

Starling Marte LF
Travis Snider RF
Andrew McCutchen CF
Garrett Jones 1B
Neil Walker 2B
Pedro Alvarez 3B
Michael McKenry C
John McDonald SS
Phil Irwin P
