According to Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette the Pittsburgh Pirates are set to recall super utility man Tucupita Marcano. In recent days the youth movement has been on for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Since Sunday, the team has promoted top relief pitching prospects Yerry De Los Santos, top starting pitching prospects Roansy Contreras, and outfield prospect Cal Mitchell. It appears that another prospect is on the way.
The San Diego Padres have been trailing the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West standings all season, but not by much. Despite having a great record and strong roster this season, the Padres don’t have enough in the tank to overtake the Dodgers offensively. They need a much stronger lineup to compare.

After blowing out the Nationals in back-to-back games, the Dodgers missed out on a sweep due to being shutout in a 1-0 loss. The Dodgers had one hit with a runner on. After bouncing back in his last start, Julio Urias continued that momentum tonight, pitching well again and showing improved stuff.
On the latest episode of Talking Friars, I give you my thoughts on all that went down during the Padres series loss to the Brewers including how San Diego was even able to win a game this series, Blake Snell bouncing back, Yu Darvish pitching well but the offense not backing him up, and Manny Machado’s bobble head night!
Padres Down on the Farm: May 25 (Abrams 3 hits, Beaty 4 hits for EP/Baez, Lamet throw scoreless frames for SA)
Blowouts combined with postponements filled the day for San Diego Padres minor league affiliates.

Loss to Brewers underscores gulf between run production at Petco Park versus on road
There’s only so far that good pitching can carry you. The San Diego Padres anemic offense struggled for the second straight day, scoring just one (unearned) run.
