Starling Marte passes concussion tests

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Starling Marte does not appear to have a concussion and will not be placed on the DL, Rob Biertempfel tweets. Marte left yesterday's game after taking a knee to the head. This is, obviously, excellent news -- the last thing the Pirates needed was to be without Marte for an extended period, and it was hard not to worry that they'd have to after yesterday's injury.

Also, Bill Brink tweets that Gerrit Cole will start Saturday, as projected. The Pirates have not yet announced whose place he will take.
