Kevin Correia does, in fact, get the start. With Indianapolis pitcher Jeff Locke being unexpectedly promoted, there was some initial speculation that Locke would take Correia’s place in the rotation, but it turned out that reliever Jason Grilli had been placed on the bereavement list.

Pedro Alvarez gets a break from playing in the field; he’ll be the Pirates’ designated hitter. Josh Harrison starts at third.
