John Jaso is not in the Pirates starting lineup Thursday.

Jaso will start the game on the bench with the left-hander Patrick Corbin toeing the rubber for the Diamondbacks. Jordy Mercer will get the chance to leadoff for the Pirates and David Freese will move over to first base. Other than Gregory Polanco who is being dropped to seventh, the Pirates are rolling out an all right-handed lineup against Corbin.

Drew VerHagen was placed on 15-day disabled list.

VerHagen was recently demoted to the minors so he can continue to be off the radar for fantasy owners. The right-hander pitched to an ERA of 7.11 in 19 games and will now look to get healthy to become an option for the Tigers later in the season.

Eric Ebron has lost 10 pounds.

It wouldn’t be an off-season unless Ebron garners hype of becoming an every week tight end. Along with the weight loss, if you factor in the retirement of Calvin Johnson, the hype train will continue to roll. The opportunity for Ebron will be there as one of the top targets for Matt Stafford and as long as he stays healthy, he should be productive, However, fantasy owners should have a decent backup in case he disappoints again.

Jon Moscot (shoulder) is scheduled to make another rehab start on Thursday.

Moscot has missed most of the month with left shoulder discomfort and is coming off a rehab start where he allowed nine runs and 11 hits over four innings. It will be interesting to see what the Reds do if Moscot struggles again, but for now, it appears he is close to returning to the big league team. Fantasy owners can look elsewhere as there isn’t much upside with Moscot.

Danny Duffy is expected to be limited to 80 pitches Thursday.

Duffy continues to build up his pitch count after being inserted into the rotation from the bullpen when Kris Medlen went down with a shoulder injury. The left-hander has pitched well as he has yet to give up a run in his two starts. Unfortunately, due to the pitch count limit, he hasn’t been able to complete five innings. Duffy could be an option soon for fantasy owners, but until his pitch restriction is lifted, there are better alternatives.
