Notes: Bryan Reynolds was removed from Sunday’s game early with right side discomfort. Earlier today, he was placed on the 10-day injured list with an oblique strain. That rules him out for this entire series and could sideline him through the trade deadline...Keller was universally regarded as one of baseball’s best pitching prospects prior to debuting, but his stuff simply hasn’t translated to the highest level. There’s an unusually large discrepancy between his lifetime 5.77 ERA and 4.26 FIP...The Pirates are second only to the Diamondbacks in total plate appearances from left-handed batters this season. They are unafraid to put their lefties in the lineup even when they’re at a platoon disadvantage.

Lineup Changes from Previous Game: García in, Jon Berti out; De La Cruz switches from RF to LF, Aguilar and Cooper swap 1B/DH

Additional Notes: Thankfully, Rojas is good to go after exiting on Sunday due to neck tightness...It’d be very surprising to see Tanner Scott pitch tonight after having worked seven of the last 10 days (full innings in six of those seven appearances).
