Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco (hamstring) will not play Saturday, July 16, and has been all but ruled out for Sunday, July 17, according to manager Clint Hurdle, who suggested Tuesday, July 19, might be the day the team decides whether or not to place him on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Sean Rodriguez is getting the start in right field Saturday in place of Polanco, who hasn't played since July 8 but still leads the team with 50 RBI. Stay tuned for further updates in the coming days, but the DL appears to be a real possibility.

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (lat) has no timetable for a return, but he will make a minor league rehab start before rejoining the team, according to manager Clint Hurdle.
Fantasy Tip: Obviously, a rehab start further delays Cole's return to the Pirates. Continue to stash Cole. In the short term, Brandon Cumpton maintains NL-only value, and he is worthy of spot starting in favorable matchups in mixed leagues.
