Charlie Morton, Jeff Karstens and James McDonald are in various stages of recovery from injuries, but they were all moving in the right direction Wednesday to help a solid Pirates pitching staff.
Gaby Sanchez is not among the Pirates who follow the Penguins closely, but he will support Pittsburgh's NHL franchise when the Pirates wear Penguins jerseys in the coming road stretch.
The consensus in the Pirates' clubhouse this season is that the players genuinely get along and enjoy one another's company. And they love to play practical jokes.
Travis Snider hit a two-out, pinch-hit grand slam in the sixth inning to give the Pirates a 5-4 victory over the Cubs at PNC Park Tuesday.
The Pirates will be represented on the first day of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft by former pitcher Kent Tekulve, who had 70 wins and 158 saves with the Bucs from 1974-1985, and pro scout Rob Guzik.
Jared Hughes had his locker cleared and his bags packed just two and a half days after he arrived in Pittsburgh. He barely got to settle in before he was right back out the door, as Jose Contreras was activated from the bereavement list.
Jordy Mercer didn't have any family or friends directly affected by a fatal tornado that ravaged part of Oklahoma City and its suburbs on Monday. But Mercer is sending plenty of prayers that way.

Given a chance to reflect on Friday night's victory on a walk-off popup, Pirates manager Clint Hurdle was pretty sure of two things: (a) It was the type of game his 2011 and '12 Bucs would not have found a way to win and (b) tape of the finish makes a pretty good instructional video for players and staff in the team's Minor League system.
Reliever Jared Hughes and his improved delivery were at the ready in the Bucs' bullpen Saturday night.
Righty Jose Contreras suffered a death in his family and left PNC Park before the game against the Houston Astros. The move returns righty Jared Hughes to the bullpen in which he was such a big part during his rookie season in 2012.

Three years after they ranked last in the National League in strikeouts, the Pirates (330 entering Friday) are on the verge of overtaking the Reds (334) for the league lead.

Opponents have something to fear in the Pirates' bullpen, and its nickname seems to fit the bill. Setup man Mark Melancon dubbed the team's group of relievers the "Shark Tank" on Twitter earlier this season, and it has been as deadly as its moniker.
Prior to the start of Thursday's game against Milwaukee, manager Clint Hurdle talked glowingly of the team's 40-game performance.
