PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – The Pirates roster moves continue as outfielder Starling Marte has been activated from the 7-day concussion disabled list while third baseman Pedro Alvarez was put on the bereavement list.
Marte, out since July 21, went 1-for-12 in three rehab games with Triple-A Indianapolis, playing two games in left field and one in center field.
The MLB bereavement list states that a player has to miss the minimum of 3 games and can miss up to the maximum of 7.
With the team taking a wait and see approach on outfielder Andrew McCutchen’s rib injury, Alvarez would likely have seen an increased amount of playing time at third base.
