Tim Lincecum gave up four runs on eight hits and two walks with four strikeouts over just four innings against the Pirates on Wednesday.

After allowing only three earned runs over his previous two starts, Lincecum failed to keep the ball rolling on Wednesday allowing four runs through just 4.0 innings of work. He is now 2-2 with a 5.55 ERA and 1.71 WHIP through seven starts, while averaging just under one strikeout per inning (35 K through 35.2 IP). Although his start to 2014 has been shaky at best, he has shown enough over the course of the first month and a half to hold onto him a little while longer. He will look to get back on track when he takes on the Braves on Monday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck

J.D. Martinez is in the Tigers lineup on Sunday.

Martinez tweaked his knee on Saturday but said after the game he does not expect to miss any time. He in fact will not and is expected to be in the lineup today.  Analysis: Dillon Conklin

Aramis Ramirez is not in the Pirates lineup on Sunday.

Ramirez will likely just be getting a rest day on Sunday. The Pirates will send out Kang or Sean Rodriguez at third base in Ramirez's place on Sunday. Analysis: Dillon Conklin

Chase Anderson (triceps) will pitch in an Arizona League game Sunday and is expected to rejoin the Diamondbacks on the next homestand.

Anderson has been one of the more consistent starters for the D-Backs this year. He is 4-4 on the year with a 4.37 ERA. He will get some work in on Sunday and should be able to rejoin the team soon.  Analysis: Dillon Conklin

Charlie Furbush (biceps) will throw bullpen sessions on Sunday and Tuesday and could start a rehab stint with Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday.

Furbush has been out since early July with a biceps injury but is looking primed to make a comeback soon. He will throw a bullpen session on Sunday and if all goes well he will start his rehab stint. Barring any setbacks, Furbush will rejoin the club in a few weeks.  Analysis: Dillon Conklin
