The Pirates announced center fielder Andrew McCutchen was removed from the lineup today with discomfort in his right shoulder. His status is day to day.

Starling Marte will shift to center in his place and Alex Presley has been added to the lineup to play left field.

Presley will bat second after Marte and Neil Walker will bat third before Pedro Alvarez.

McCutchen made an appearance in the two-run seventh inning with a pinch hit single that loaded the bases for the Pirates.
