Rob Biertempfel's post on Pittsburgh Pirates | Latest updates on Sulia
#Pirates roster is a steaming mess right now
OF Jose Tabata is here, but #Pirates have not yet officially activated him. Starling Marte (side) is not available today and could be headed to DL. "This is not a 1-day deal," Hurdle said. INF Jordy Mercer (bruised wrist) is available today, but will go on 3-day paternity leave after game. 2B Neil Walker (finger) still iffy. RP Chad Qualls is expected back Monday from bereavement leave. Correia has been back in pen past 2 days. Watson & Cruz unavailable today, Hughes probably can pitch if needed.
