Gamethread: Pirates to promote Kris Johnson


Here's the lineup against lefty Wade Miley and the Diamondbacks. Neil Walker is out.

Starling Marte LF
Jordy Mercer 2B
Andrew McCutchen CF
Russell Martin C
Pedro Alvarez 3B
Gaby Sanchez 1B
Jose Tabata RF
Clint Barmes SS
Charlie Morton P

Also, it appears the Pirates will option Bryan Morris and promote Kris Johnson after Morris' miserable outing yesterday. Morris will be back soon, surely. Johnson's first outing for the Bucs will be his first in the big leagues. He's 28.
