• Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole will make another rehab start for Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday, Hurdle said. This will be his third rehab appearance since straining his right lat more than a month ago. Cole gave up five runs on 10 hits in 4 1/3 innings in his last start, and Hurdle is hoping for a lengthier outing this time.
"The last time it went to 70 pitches in less than five," Hurdle said. "So we'd like to see more innings, more ups and downs and more pitches."
