Latest Update Steve Pearce (oblique) said there is no pain and he will swing a bat in the next few days. Tue Sep, 02, 03:45 PM
Is a talented hitter with good power in his bat at lower levels. Displays a lot of versatility defensively. Can mash left-handed pitching. Can be used off the bench effectively.
Flaws: : Swings too freely when at the dish, so he needs to develop a more consistent approach (in particular against right-handed pitching). Lacks overall consistency in his game.
This is good news for Pearce. Consider him day-to-day. Analyst: Mike Mohr
This will be the third-straight game Pearce will have missed with the abdominal strain. The MRI came back negative, so consider him day-to-day still. Chris Davis is back at first Monday with Jimmy Paredes at third.Analyst: Howard Bender
Pearce has begun to heat up again hitting five home runs over his past 15 games.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Pearce seemed to strain an abdominal muscle so he'll go for the MRI just to make sure it's not something worse. Consider him day-to-day for now but don't expect to see him in Saturday's lineup regardless of the MRI results.Analyst: Howard Bender
