Corey Hart in, Pedro Alvarez out of Pirates lineup Saturday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/16/15) Pirates first baseman Pedro Alvarez will not be the first baseman Saturday. He is out of the lineup against Cubs left-hander Jon Lester.
Corey Hart is set to man the position instead.
Alvarez has just one hit in 12 at-bats against lefties this season. But Hart is 1-for-13 against them in 2015.
Pirates' Gregory Polanco and Pedro Alvarez not starting Wednesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/13/15) With a left-hander on the mound Wednesday, Pirates manager Clint Hurdle has juggled his lineup for the matchup against the Phillies.
Left-handed batters Gregory Polanco and Pedro Alvarez are out of the lineup, while Corey Hart covers right field and Sean Rodriguez handles first base. Josh Harrison will move up to the leadoff spot in the order.
Second baseman Neil Walker is sliding down to the seventh spot in the lineup. This is the first time all season he has hit lower than sixth in the order.
Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez to miss second start of year
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/28/15) Pirates first baseman Pedro Alvarez is not listed in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game. It's just the second time this year that Alvarez has missed a start at first.
Corey Hart replaces Alvarez at first. It's his second start there this season and second in the last seven games. He'll bat cleanup.
The Pirates are +107 money line underdogs at the Cubs.
Pirates outfielder Starling Marte out of the lineup Tuesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) Pirates manager Clint Hurdle has decided to go with Corey Hart in right field Tuesday and moved Gregory Polanco to left, pushing Starling Marte to the bench, the team announced.
Hart has made one start so far this season and is hitting .500 in six at-bats. He is a career .269 hitter while playing right field and .268 while batting fifth.
"He's just being challenged right now," Hurdle said. "We've seen Starling get in some funks. He's been able to work his way out of them. One of the ways you help him is just to sit him down, give him a chance to catch his breath."
He is hitting just .115 with 14 strikeouts in 26 at-bats this season. The Pirates are currently the favorites (-120) over the Tigers Tuesday.
Pirates' Corey Hart hits home run off the bench Monday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) Pirates infielder Corey Hart ripped a pinch-hit home run in Monday's 5-4 win over the Tigers.
Hart came up for pitcher Jared Hughes in the seventh and ripped a 1-0 pitch off Anibal Sanchez out of the park for a two-run blast, his first home run of the year. Hart is now hitting .500 in six at-bats this season.
|2014 summary: Corey Hart had emerged as one of the top power hitters in the game before missing all of 2013 because of surgery on both knees, but that player was nowhere to be found in his return last year. OK, so he actually started off pretty well with four home runs and an .891 OPS in 13 games, but he hit just two with a .503 OPS in 55 games thereafter, becoming a fixture on the Mariners bench to close out the season.|
Playing time status: Hart did suffer two injuries along the way -- a strained hamstring that cost him six weeks beginning in late May and a bruised knee that cost him a month beginning in early August -- and of course, it's reasonable to think he wasn't at 100 percent from the get-go. Still, the performance doesn't leave him much hope of salvaging his career at age 33, especially since his new team, Pittsburgh, doesn't exactly have an opening for him.
2015 outlook: Hart's best chance for at-bats with the Pirates is as the other half of a lefty-righty platoon with Pedro Alvarez, who himself is transitioning from third to first base. Hart has hit lefties better than righties in his career, though not dramatically so, and the 200-something at-bats he'd get in that role wouldn't amount to much even if he did bounce back. Of course, if he shows signs of bouncing back, maybe he'll get a bigger role, but that's too big of an "if" outside of deeper NL-only leagues.
