Pittsburgh Pirates OF Josh Harrison (ankle) injured his ankle during the game Friday, Aug. 8, but is expected to be fine, according to manager Clint Hurdle. Harrison said the ankle tightened up in the later innings of the game. Hurdle said Harrison will have the ankle examined.
Fantasy Tip: Harrison did not leave the game, so the injury does not appear to be serious. Owners in daily leagues should pay attention in case he is given a day off to allow the ankle to rest.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have benched 3B Pedro Alvarez as the starter, instead preferring to use SS Jayson Nix and OF Josh Harrison at the position. Alvarez will get a chance to learn another position in the offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Alvarez is a streaky source of power categories. He's a must-hold in NL-only leagues and a worthwhile speculative add in mixed leagues if he's dropped.

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (concussion) will begin a four-game rehab stint Saturday, August 2, with Triple-A Indianapolis.
Fantasy Tip: It has been a disappointing sophomore campaign for Marte. He should be owned in the majority of formats, though, and he could finish strong. Expect him back the middle of next week. He shouldn't be started this week in weekly lineup leagues. Josh Harrison could see decreased playing time when Marte returns.

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (head) will be placed on the disabled list, but it is not known if it will be the seven-day disabled list or the 15-day disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Travis Snider may receive more playing time while Marte is out of the lineup. Josh Harrison could also receive some playing time in the outfield but could also play third base, depending on Pedro Alvarez's injury. Snider should help in NL-only leagues but may not have much value in mixed leagues.
