MIAMI—Apologies for the late start, was trying to get some work done for this weekend.

Seeing as how the game is already in progress, I’ll skip the lineups and just note that the lineup should look different tomorrow night in Pittsburgh.

Both Carlos Pena and Jason Bartlett are expected to be at PNC Park, and Pena will be activated from the DL as long as he doesn’t experience any setbacks in his DH stint for Vero Beach tonight at Sarasota.

Still unknown is whether Akinori Iwamura will be eligible to play. The Rays haven’t heard back from MLB regarding his suspension appeal and don’t know when they will get the word.

As long as Bartlett is good to go tomorrow, Ben Zobrist is the likely bet to be sent back to Durham and make room for Pena on the active roster.
