Jameson Taillon squares off with old Cardinals pest Shelby Miller at 2:05 today in Arlington, a quick turnaround after the Pirates snapped an eight-game losing streak Tuesday night.

Elias Diaz is catching today after filling in for Francisco Cervelli after Cervelli got hit in the left hand by a pitch early in Tuesday’s game. According to MLB.com’s Adam Berry, Cervelli’s initial exam showed no fractures. No roster move has been announced. Jacob Stallings is starting in Triple-A Indianapolis’ game this afternoon, and catcher Steven Baron is with the Pirates in Arlington.
