Pirates pitcher Chris Archer undergoes hernia surgery
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pirates pitcher Chris Archer has undergone surgery to repair a hernia but should be ready in time for spring training.
The team says Archer had surgery Tuesday after complaining of symptoms during a recent workout. Archer is expected to take six weeks off to recuperate before resuming his offseason program.
Pittsburgh acquired Archer from Tampa Bay in a July trade that sent outfielder Austin Meadows and pitcher Tyler Glasnow to the Rays.
Glasnow limits Rangers to 2 infield singles in Rays’ 3-0 win
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Tyler Glasnow finally has a win to go with the label of the pitcher Tampa Bay got in the trade for former ace Chris Archer.
Glasnow allowed two infield singles in six innings for the hard-throwing right-hander's first American League win, 3-0 over the Texas Rangers on Monday night.
Adames, Bauers homer for Rays in 7-2 win over Angels
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Rookie Willy Adames homered and drove in two runs on the day Tampa Bay gave him the regular shortstop job, leading the Rays to a 7-2 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night.
Adames drove in a run with a two-out single off Angels starter Nick Tropeano in the fourth inning, then scored on Mallex Smith's triple,
Adames led off the Rays sixth with his fourth home run to make it 4-2.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Pirates general manager Neal Huntington remained bullish on his team even after parting with stars Gerrit Cole and Andrew McCutchen in the offseason. Even after a swoon through June wiped out a hot start. Even after his club found itself floundering in early July.
And when the Pirates responded with a 15-4 surge that seemed to validate his optimism, he sent a message at the non-waiver trade deadline. The Pirates are intent on winning. Not just in 2018, but beyond.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — It was a strange sight after a big hit.
Ketel Marte's two-out single in the 13th inning led the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night. But, right after his go-ahead hit, Marte slammed his helmet down in frustration so hard that the sound could be heard all the way to the top of the ballpark. The second baseman was angry about being caught in a rundown to make the final out of the inning.
BRADENTON, Fla. — When asked if he has seen progress this spring from Tyler Glasnow, Pirates pitching coach Ray Searage couldn't answer, ‘Yes,' enough times.
Count 'em: Six.
"Oh, yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes," he said before the Pirates met the Minnesota Twins in Fort Myers. "I'm very, very happy to see that going on."
He said Glasnow is adjusting to the pressures of the game at its highest level and the demands placed upon him by big-league hitters.
The Pirates finalized contract terms Saturday for all 31 of their players who have fewer than three years of service and are not eligible for arbitration.
The list includes several of the more prominent members of the team, including:
• First baseman Josh Bell, who hit 26 home runs last season.
• Pitcher Steven Brault, who is in the middle of a battle for a spot in the starting rotation.
• Jameson Taillon, who will start the home opener April 2.
• Trevor Williams, who started 25 games last season.
DUNEDIN, Fla. — Clint Hurdle had no shortage of words to describe Tyler Glasnow's latest pitching performance, but "frustrating" isn't one the Pirates manager chose.
Not even after Glasnow struggled against the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday, giving up six hits, seven runs (six earned), with five strikeouts and three walks in 22⁄3 innings in a 13-4 loss at Dunedin Stadium.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Giancarlo Stanton kept taking aim at the batter's eye high above the center field fence at PNC Park during batting practice on Friday afternoon, but couldn't find the right pitch to get it there.
It ended up coming off the hand of struggling Pittsburgh Pirates starter Tyler Glasnow instead.

Reds pounce on wild Glasnow in 7-1 win over Pirates
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The showdown between a pair of promising 23-year-olds with electric, if erratic, stuff never materialized. Pittsburgh's Tyler Glasnow couldn't find the strike zone on Monday night. Neither, really, could Cincinnati's Brandon Finnegan.
Projected record: 82-80Projected run differential: +5Following years of MVP-caliber play, Andrew McCutchen was just off in 2016. He was a mess on defense, which prompted a move to right field this season, and he posted by far his worst offensive year (106 wRC+). His return to form is easily the biggest factor on the offensive side that could bring the Bucs back to the postseason, as the rest of the lineup remains largely intact from a season ago.Pittsburgh's pitching, on the other hand, could...
Pirates waste Glasnow’s solid start in 7-0 loss to Cardinals
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Tyler Glasnow is headed to the offseason on a high note.
Glasnow pitched five effective innings, but the Pittsburgh Pirates were shut down by Carlos Martinez in a 7-0 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night.
Glasnow (0-2) allowed one run on Jedd Gyorko's third-inning homer, but that was it. The rookie right-hander, one of Pittsburgh's top prospects, walked four and struck four while throwing 79 pitches in his fourth start of the year.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Pirates can't feel all that excited about their victory Saturday because of an injury to their top pitching prospect.
Tyler Glasnow was removed with shoulder discomfort before Gregory Polanco and David Freese hit two-run singles during a five-run fifth inning that rallied Pittsburgh over the Philadelphia Phillies 7-4.
Glasnow exited his second major league start in the fourth. The rookie right-hander was recalled from Triple-A...

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Pirates rookie right-hander Tyler Glasnow was removed from his second major league start in the fourth inning Saturday with shoulder discomfort in his throwing arm.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Another young arm put a smile on Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle's face,.
Tyler Glasnow didn't let a rough finish spoil his debut, working into the sixth inning of a 5-1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday that ended the Pirates' seven-game winning streak.
"I was more excited than I was nervous," the 22-year-old right-hander said. "Looking back, it was a fun time."
Hurdle thought the 6-foot-8 Glasnow showed plenty of poise...
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Hard-throwing pitching prospect Tyler Glasnow will make his major league debut for the Pittsburgh Pirates against the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday night.
The 6-foot-8 right-hander has a 1.78 ERA in 96 innings at Triple-A Indianapolis and runs his fastball up to 99 mph. He was a fifth-round pick in 2011 and has ranked among the Pirates top prospects since breaking out in Class A in 2013.
The team announced the move Wednesday and Glasnow was...
