Game thread: Aramis Ramirez joins Pirates

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Here are tonight's lineups.

Tonight will be Aramis Ramirez's first game with the Pirates since they acquired him on Thursday. The Bucs designated Brent Morel for assignment before the game, which is unsurprising -- he was out of options, and the Pirates don't have much use for him with Ramirez available. That means the Pirates had to designate both Morel and Steve Lombardozzi to add Ramirez, designating Lombardozzi to add Ramirez to their 40-man and then waiting to designate Morel until Ramirez's arrival two days later.
