Pirates reinstate Starling Marte, place Pedro Alvarez on bereavement list

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Pirates have announced that they've reinstated Starling Marte from the disabled list and placed Pedro Alvarez on the bereavement list.

There's no news yet regarding Andrew McCutchen, who is supposed to head to the disabled list with his oblique injury, but in any case, it will be nice to have Marte back from his concussion, especially since McCutchen will be out. Alvarez already wasn't starting much, so Josh Harrison will presumably continue to see lots of at bats at third base, with Jayson Nix likely picking up any that remain.
