Gamethread: Pirates activate Francisco Liriano

USA TODAY Sports

The Pirates activated Francisco Liriano, who of course will start today's 1:10 game against the Mets. To make room, they optioned Duke Welker to Indianapolis. Tony Sanchez is with the team, but only on the taxi squad and not on the active roster. It's unclear whether Russell Martin can play.

Here's the Pirates' lineup against lefty Jon Niese:

Starling Marte LF
Jordy Mercer 2B
Andrew McCutchen CF
Gaby Sanchez 1B
Jose Tabata RF
Brandon Inge 3B
Michael McKenry C
Clint Barmes SS
Francisco Liriano
