  • Pirates' Rowdy Tellez: Idle against lefty

    Tellez is out of the lineup for Sunday's matchup against Atlanta.

    With Atlanta bringing southpaw Chris Sale to the mound, the lefty-hitting Tellez will retreat to the bench. Even with the Pirates recently optioning another key left-handed bat in Jack Suwinski to the minors, Tellez doesn't look as though he'll necessarily be locked into a regular role against right-handed pitching, either. He was held out of the starting nine for Saturday's 4-1 win while righty Reynaldo Lopez started for Atlanta.

  • Pirates' Rowdy Tellez: Sitting Saturday

    Tellez isn't in the Pirates' lineup Saturday against Atlanta, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

    Although the Pirates will be facing a right-hander in Reynaldo Lopez, the left-handed Tellez will step out of the lineup. The 29-year-old is slashing just .175/.242/.225 through 132 plate appearances, so it's possible he's losing his grip on the starting job at first base. Connor Joe will get the nod at first while Edward Olivares starts in right field.

    Tellez is out of the lineup for Friday's game against Atlanta, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

  • Pirates' Rowdy Tellez: Sitting versus righty

    Tellez is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Giants.

    It's notable because the Pirates are facing a right-hander in Logan Webb. Tellez has started all but two games versus righties this season, but the two times he wasn't in the lineup have both come over the last week. With a .181/.250/.233 batting line in 44 contests this season, Tellez's time in Pittsburgh might be running out. Connor Joe will handle first base Tuesday.

  • Pirates' Rowdy Tellez: Struggles continue

    Tellez went 0-for-2 with a walk and a run scored Thursday against the Brewers.

    Tellez hasn't gotten on track at the plate this season and now has only two hits across his last 28 at-bats. He's struck out seven times in that span, and he has only two barrels on 51 batted ball events for the season. The Pirates could ultimately opt to play Connor Joe at first base more regularly if Tellez's struggles continue, and the eventual return of Yasmani Grandal (foot) could also mean that Tellez will lose some plate appearances.

  • Pirates' Rowdy Tellez: Providing minimal power

    Tellez went 0-for-3 Saturday against the Red Sox.

    Tellez went hitless for the fourth time in his last six starts and is hitting only .207 overall across 65 plate appearances for the season. To make matters worse, he has only one extra-base hit on the campaign, failing to provide pop in the middle of the Pittsburgh lineup. Already sitting against lefties, it's possible that Tellez also starts to sit against righties due to the solid start to the season for Connor Joe, plus the eventual return of Yasmani Grandal (foot).

    Tellez is absent from the lineup for Friday's game versus the Phillies.

  • Pirates' Rowdy Tellez: Reaches base four times

    Tellez went 3-for-4 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored Saturday against the Orioles.

    Tellez started his fourth straight game after beginning the season on the bench regularly due to several matchups against lefties. He tallied his second multi-hit game of the campaign, highlighted by an RBI single in the second inning. Tellez has primarily hit sixth in Pittsburgh's lineup and should remain on the large side of a platoon at first base.

  • Pirates' Rowdy Tellez: Sitting versus lefty

  • Pirates' Rowdy Tellez: Crushes three-run homer

    Tellez went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run during Sunday's 9-7 victory over the Marlins.

    Tellez earned the start against Marlins lefty starter Trevor Rogers and struck out three times prior to crushing a go-ahead three-run homer off right-handed reliever Vladimir Gutierrez in the seventh. It was the first homer of the season for Tellez, who started just two of the four games in Miami due to the Marlins' lefty-heavy rotation. The Pirates are scheduled to face a fifth-straight southpaw Monday in MacKenzie Gore of the Nationals, putting Tellez at risk of sitting for the third time in five games. However, Tellez is slated to be the primary first-basemen against righties, and as the Pirates' schedule normalizes, he will be in line for the bulk of the work.
