He was scratched from his start today, meaning the Pirates are definitely trying to take advantage of the Cardinals' struggles against lefthanders all year.

Apparently a lefty rookie. Sigh, we all know what that means. Bucs K over ten times, and the rook pitches a three hitter. :D

Right now they have Joe Kelly (righty) listed so that'd be interesting. He's been very good for them over this stretch run, but he's young so they may be skipping him around like the Pirates are doing with Cole.

Stolmy Pimentel also up. Biertempfel tweeted Johnson will start, so not sure it means much beyond just having Stolmy already in Pittsburgh for when rosters expand tomorrow.

Pimentel might be up in a Locke/McPherson role from last year where he does some relief and spot starts.

Kelly has been somewhat similar to the pre-AS Game Jeff Locke - good results with mediocre peripherals. In August he has started six games, with 35 IP, a 5-0 record, and a 2.06 ERA. But his WHIP is 1.43 and he has only struck out 18 batters. His K:BB ratio is a poor 1.12. Hopefully the peripherals catch up to him Sunday.
