Pirates vs. Astros, 24 April 2010 - Jakubauskas Hurt

New, 162 comments

If you haven't seen already, the Pirates have traded Indianapolis outfielder Jon Van Every to the Red Sox for a PTBNL. Van Every played briefly for the Red Sox in 2008 and 2009. He's a perfectly good AAA player, but with Brandon Jones and Brandon Moss as younger lefty outfield options, and with another veteran lefty outfield option in Brian Myrow who's probably a better hitter, Van Every wouldn't have gotten much of an opportunity with the Pirates. Anyway, Chris Jakubauskas makes his Pirates debut tonight.

UPDATE: Jakubauskas is being removed on a stretcher after being hit in the head by a Lance Berkman line drive. I really hope he's okay--that was one of the nastier-looking injuries I've seen on a baseball field. Jakubauskas was, for a while, kicking his feet in agony. When he finally sat up, he was spitting blood.
