Pirates | James McDonald not ready to return

Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle indicated SP James McDonald (shoulder) is not ready to rejoin the starting rotation because his breaking pitches are all in the 73- to 80-mph range, which is something the team wants to see change. The team also wants to see McDonald retire more batters in three pitches or less. McDonald allowed five runs and eight hits in six innings in a rehab start for Triple-A Indianapolis.
