    So who steps into the rotation to fill the void? Kingham? Brault? Keller?

    What do people think about Bryan Reynolds? Seems to be off to a good start. Contact only?

    I have him and am starting him, but yeah, that's what he seems to be.

    He has hit over .300 at every stop so far. I found this blur in Rotowire:

    The Giants have selected Reynolds with the 59th overall pick in the 2016 first-year player draft.
    ANALYSIS
    A switch-hitting college outfielder, Reynolds is a patient hitter who will walk a lot and could eventually slot into the leadoff spot. He tallied almost as many walks as strikeouts this season at Vanderbilt. The 21-year-old has above-average speed, flashing the ability to steal double-digit bags. Reynolds also showed a surprising uptick in power this season, smacking 13 home runs in 59 games for the Commodores. Power will not be his greatest asset, though, as his hit tool will still be the draw. Reynolds never hit below .315 in his three years at Vandy, and he hit .346 in the Cape Cod League last summer.

    He has hit .300 or better at every level. Below average power. Below average speed. So, yeah contact only. Although, he does seem to strike out a lot for a contact hitter.

    If the Pirates ever get Dickerson, Polanco, and Marte to all stay healthy at the same time, then Reynolds becomes the 4th OF. But that's a big if. I think he gets 350-400 at bats this year. Dickerson is a free agent at the end of the year. So, expect the cheap Pirates to let Dickerson walk and make Reynolds a starter in 2020.

    Mitch Keller last night in AAA: 5 ip, 1 h, 0 r, 3 bb, 13 k! With the Pirates desperate for pitching right now, i expect him to be back up very soon. Perhaps as soon as next week.

    I'm not too concerned about Keller giving up 6 er in his MLB debut on May 27. All of the runs came in the first inning and he settled down to retire 10 of the last 11 batters he faced while striking out 7 in 4 ip. So, it seems like the kid just had a bad case of the jitters in that first inning.

    Outfielder Corey Dickerson is back from the IL today. Look for Brian Reynolds and Melky Cabrera to lose at bats until the Pirates can trade free-agent-to-be Dickerson for some pitching.

    Third Baseman Jung Ho Kang is also back from the IL. Look for him to back up Colin Moran and pinch hit.
