Pirates' Tony Watson gives up homer in blown save

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/1/15) Pirates reliever Tony Watson gave up a two-run home run to blow a two-run lead in the eighth inning. The Pirates eventually won in 14 innings. 

Watson allowed his first homer since April 21 and blew his first save opportunity of the year. He's 0 for 5 in his career on save opportunities. 

Pirates trying to limit innings for RP Tony Watson

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/30/15) Pirates manager Clint Hurdle is trying not to overuse reliever Tony Watson and has spent the last two weeks purposely easing off one of his top bullpen arms, per TribLive.com. 

Watson has made just five appearances since May 17 as the Pirates hope to keep the pitcher from going way beyond his career highs of 78 appearances and 77 1/3 innings pitched. He's been very effective for Pittsburgh, with 16 straight scoreless appearances. 

"The biggest thing is to listen to your body and try to go as much as you can, but also know when to pump the brakes," Watson said. 

Pirates calling on Jared Hughes, Tony Watson more often

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/12/15) Pirates manager Clint Hurdle appears to have two favorite players coming out of the bullpen right now, according to MLB.com.

Jared Hughes and Tony Watson have appeared in 18 of the team's first 31 games with Hughes throwing again on Monday, pitching a perfect eighth inning. 

"The more, the merrier," Hughes said. "The most important thing is sticking to a routine, staying in good shape. And I feel good."

"That's high. It would be called red-lining if they were sports cars," Hurdle had said of the two setup men's appearances prior to game. He reiterated afterward, "We do have to find some rest for them."

Hughes made 63 appearances in 2014, but thinks he's just fine with is workload so far.

"A lot of times, it's to face only a couple of batters. And I get low pitch counts," Hughes said, "because I force early contact."

Pirates' Mark Melancon unavailable Sunday

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/15) Pirates closer Mark Melancon is unavailable to pitch Sunday after racking up three saves in the last three days, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Melancon has dealt with some velocity issues this April and owns a 5.79 ERA and 5:4 K:BB ratio in 9 1/3 innings, but he hasn't surrendered a run in any of his three appearances over the last three days. With the closer getting a scheduled break, the team could turn to lefty Tony Watson or righty Jared Hughes in a save opportunity Sunday.

Pirates' Tony Watson earns win Saturday

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/15) Pirates pitcher Tony Watson was able to pitch out of a jam Saturday to deliver a scoreless eighth inning and eventually earn the win in his team's 2-1 victory over the Diamondbacks.

Watson (1-1) gave up two hits in the outing and had men on second and third with one out, but was able to record a pop out and strikeout to escape the inning.

"There is nobody he doesn't challenge," manager Clint Hurdle said after the game, per MLB.com. "He's been pitching this way for two-plus years. He's cool. He's got a slow heartbeat. He's not going to get rattled."

Pitching coach Ray Searage visited Watson with two men in scoring position and one out, but there was no talk of issuing an intentional walk to the next batter.

"No. Right away, we got with Ray and said we got a plan to get him out," Hurdle said. "We felt we were in an advantage situation with our guy on the mound. We bet on our guy."

Watson gave up three earned runs in his season debut but has been excellent since. Saturday's outing gives him a 3.00 ERA and 11:0 K:BB ratio in 12 innings.
