Dodgers / Pirates Game 2 Chat: X Starts It Off

New, comments

Some highlights from Joe Torre's pregame session with the media:

  • Rafael Furcal is unavailable tonight, but he feels better. He will likely miss the remainder of the series with Pittsburgh
  • Manny Ramirez will likely begin a rehabilitation assignment (location to be determined) this week, and will likely be activated on May 8, the first day he is eligible to come off the disabled list
  • Jeff Weaver will throw a 40 to 45-pitch bullpen session Saturday, and if that goes well he will go on a rehab assignment as well this week. Weaver is eligible to be activated Friday, May 7.

Here are the lineups:

Pirates Dodgers
2B Iwamura LF

CF McCutchen
