Player Notes
Neil Walker is not in the Pirates' lineup Sunday.

Advice: Walker sits often versus lefties and is doing so here against the Braves' Alex Wood. Josh Harrison is at second base Friday, with Jung Ho Kang filling in at third.

The ailment that kept Neil Walker out of the lineup for five games involved his right hip and core.

Advice: Although the pain did move into his stomach, it wasn't an illness that held Walker out as previously reported. "For whatever reason it wouldn’t subside," Walker said. "We thought maybe it was an ab strain or something along those lines. I couldn’t get to the point where I was comfortable enough to run and swing a bat and all those things." Walker, who returned to action Tuesday, admitted that he's "not 100 percent" but is "close enough," so he'll play through it.

Neil Walker (illness) is back in Tuesday's lineup against the Reds.

Advice: Walker pinch-hit on Sunday, but he missed five straight starts due to illness. He'll bat cleanup in his return Tuesday against Reds right-hander Josh Smith.

Neil Walker (illness) singled as a pinch-hitter Sunday in the Pirates' loss to the Nationals.

Advice: Walker was out of the starting lineup for a fifth straight game, but it was a scheduled absence with the Nats throwing left-hander Gio Gonzalez. Walker is over his stomach bug and should start at second base for the Pirates in Tuesday's series opener versus the Reds.

Neil Walker (illness) is available off the bench Sunday.

Advice: Walker is absent from the lineup for the fifth straight day, but he wasn't going to be starting, anyway, with a lefty (Gio Gonzalez) on the mound for the Nationals. He should be back in there on Tuesday following Monday's off day. Josh Harrison is at second base again Sunday, while Jung Ho Kang slides over to third base and Jordy Mercer handles shortstop.

Neil Walker (illness) is out of the Pirates lineup for the fourth consecutive game on Saturday.

Advice: Once again, Josh Harrison will handle second base in his absence while Jung Ho Kang slides over to third base and Jordy Mercer handles the shortstop position. Walker is battling a stomach bug, but should be ready to return in a few days.
