Burres to remain in the rotation
After pitching a beauty on Monday against the Braves, Brian Burres will remain in the Pirates rotation for the remainder of the season.
Manager John Russell annouced that Burres will start in Cincinnati on Tuesday.
Jeff Karsents’ sore shoulder is slowly improving but it is unlikely that he will make another start this season. If Karstens does pitch before the season ends, it would be from the bullpen.
“He’s getting better,” Russell said. “It’s still going to be a few days before there is a determination about when he might be ready to come back.”
