Jameson Taillon opposes Adam Wainwright in tonight’s 7:05 game.
The Pirates lineup is not yet out probably because
it inconveniences me they’re figuring out whether Francisco Cervelli can play.
The Cardinals are without Trevor Rosenthal, who appears headed to the disabled list.
The Cardinals lineup:
- Matt Carpenter, 1B
- Tommy Pham, LF
- Paul DeJong, SS
- Dexter Fowler, CF
- Yadier Molina, C
- Jedd Gyorko, 3B
- Kolten Wong, 2B
- Randal Grichuk, RF
- Adam Wainwright, P
UPDATE: The Pirates continue to handle the catching situation horribly. Cervelli isn't in the lineup, nor has he been placed on the DL. On top of that, Chris Stewart will again start over Elias Diaz. This is negligent.
UPDATE (2): Cervelli is headed to the DL after all. Max Moroff is headed to the big club. Consider me ever so slightly placated.
Roster move: Francisco Cervelli to the DL with Left Wrist Inflammation (retro to 8/14); Max Moroff is expected to be recalled.— Pirates (@Pirates) August 17, 2017
