Pirates | Candidate for fifth spot undetermined

Dejan Kovacevic, of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, reports the Pittsburgh Pirates have not decided who will replace P Tony Armas Jr. in the rotation. The most likely candidate is RP Shawn Chacon, but management is not expected to make a decision until next week. Other candidates include RP Marty McLeary, SP John Van Benschoten and SP Bryan Bullington. The latter two have been pitching well at Triple-A Indianapolis this season. The Pirates will likely skip the No. 5 spot in the rotation the next time around because the team has a day off Monday, May 21.
