UPDATES & NEWS
Michael Pineda (shoulder) experienced discomfort throwing Friday and will be shut down for awhile.
As recently as Tuesday, Pineda was making positive progression, but that has been halted. His comeback season took a turn for the worse after being busted using pine tar and immediately following that, he experienced soreness in his shoulder. Expect Pineda to be out for at least another month at a minimum.ANALYST: David Kerr
Update: Corey Dickerson was removed from Saturday's game with a left quad injury.
While the news regarding Dickerson's plantar fasciitis was positive, he was removed after he fouled a ball off his back leg and is now day-to-day with what the team is calling a quad injury. When his leg appeared to be swollen, manager Walt Weiss opted to play it safe and remove Dickerson who had gone 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against the Giants. Consider him day-to-day for right now and figure he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday. Analysis: Howard Bender
