Corey Dickerson homered off Alex Wilson in the bottom of the ninth to give the Pirates a 1-0 win over the Rays on Thursday.

Dickerson had been in a little slump of late, going eight straight games without an RBI before providing the only run in this one. It was his second homer of the year, and it pushed his OPS back up to .848.

Ivan Nova scattered six hits over eight innings in the Pirates' 1-0 win over the Tigers on Thursday.

That lone run came in the bottom of the ninth, so Nova didn't get the win. Still, he did lower his ERA to 3.32. He's had an easy schedule thus far, having faced the Tigers twice and the Marlins once. The Tigers didn't even have Victor Martinez or Jeimer Candelario in the lineup for this one. Nova will get the Nationals next time out.

Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports that Jung Ho Kang has been granted a work visa to re-enter the United States and "will rejoin the Pirates in the coming days."

Kang's immigration lawyer posted a photo in a now-deleted tweet of Kang arriving at an airport Thursday afternoon in New York City. Biertempfel notes that it's unclear what kind of shape Kang is in and now long it will take him to actually to return to the Pirates' active roster. The South Korean third baseman was not allowed into the United States last year after being arrested for his third DUI in Seoul in December 2016. This is a rather surprising turn of events.

Michael Fulmer shut out the Pirates for six innings and struck out nine in a no-decision Thursday.

It turned out to be the second time already this season that Fulmer was on the wrong side of a 1-0 game against the Pirates. He's pitched well enough to win four times in five starts, but he has a 1-2 record to show for his 2.76 ERA. That figures to be a problem for him all year, assuming that he isn't traded to a contender in July.
Apr 26 - 3:32 PM

Josh Bell went 0-for-4 against the Tigers on Thursday and is batting just .240/.302/.344 in 96 at-bats.

In spite of his struggles, Bell has driven in 15 runs in the Pirates' 25 games. He could do big things in the RBI category if he can hang on to the cleanup spot this year, and he should begin to warm up soon.

Kris Bryant (head) is out of the Cubs' starting lineup again on Thursday versus the Brewers.

Bryant has been sidelined since taking a pitch off his helmet on Sunday. He was scheduled to meet with team physician Dr. Stephen Adams on Thursday afternoon in Chicago, presumably for another round of concussion tests. Tommy La Stella will start at third base and bat fifth Thursday night against Rockies right-hander Chase Anderson.
Apr 26 - 3:28 PM

Rule 5 pick Victor Reyes went 0-for-3 before being lifted Thursday and is 1-for-12 this year.

The problem here is that Reyes has only 12 at-bats; the Tigers have nothing to play for besides developing players, so they either need to give Reyes some real playing time or send him back to the Diamondbacks. Sure, he's probably not going to be any good, but he'll be a better bet for 2019 and beyond having had 300 at-bats this year than the 100 he's currently on pace for.
Apr 26 - 3:27 PM

Jose Abreu (flu) is out of the White Sox starting lineup on Thursday against the Royals.

Abreu left Wednesday's game after three innings due to flu-like symptoms. Consider him day-to-day. Matt Davidson is at first base and Daniel Palka is serving as Chicago's designated hitter in Thursday night's series opener at Kansas City's Kauffman Stadium.
