Pirates mulling over roster decisions


Both Josh Harrison and Starling Marte suffered injuries this week and now the Pirates have to figure out what they will do with their roster.

With Harrison already on the disabled list, the Pirates can’t really afford to keep Marte on the active roster if he’s not able to play.

If his injury winds up being worse than initially thought, he may wind up on the DL as well.

"We’ll look at internal options," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle told Pirates.com, "and this time of the year there are other options to consider and to pursue. Whether the waiver wire, or being aggressive with an early opportunity to add [prior the Trade Deadline]…there’s different ways to get it done."
