Glasnow (shoulder) threw three scoreless innings for Double-A Altoona on Monday, allowing two hits and three walks while striking out six. "Everything felt good tonight," Glasnow told Pirates Prospects. "I just went out there like normal, and the arm felt fine."
Kuhl (3-1) took his first loss despite firing a quality start Saturday versus the Marlins, giving up three runs (two earned) on five hits over six innings. He did not issue a walk or record a strikeout.
Kang was placed on the 15-day DL on Saturday because of a left shoulder injury he suffered when sliding into second base Friday night, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Bill Brink reports. He is expected to miss 2-4 weeks.
Although McCutchen sports a .472 on-base percentage and 12:8 BB:K since the Pirates benched him in the beginning of August, he doesn't believe the time off helped him. "I will forever tell you that (those) three days had nothing to do with what I'm doing," McCutchen told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "I would've done this regardless. I might have five more hits in three games. Instead of hitting .240, I could be hitting .260."
