  • Ji Man Choi Doing Light Baseball Activities

    Headshot for Ji-Man Choi

    Pittsburgh Pirates first baseman Ji Man Choi (Achilles) is doing light baseball activities, including some throwing and hitting, according to director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk. Choi is finally starting to do some baseball activities, but he's still about halfway through an eight-week timetable. The 31-year-old left-handed slugger probably won't be able to return to Pittsburgh's lineup until sometime in July. He played in just nine games before getting hurt and had gone just 4-for-32 (.125) with a double, two home runs, two RBI and 15 strikeouts. When he's healthy enough to return, he'll be hoping to steal playing time at first base from regular Carlos Santana.

  • Ji Man Choi Moved To 60-Day Injured List

    Headshot for Ji-Man Choi

    Pittsburgh Pirates infielder Ji Man Choi (Achilles) was transferred to the 60-day injured list on Sunday. The 31-year-old had battled a left Achilles strain since spring training but tried to play through it. However, he's now expected to be out for eight weeks. Fortunately, Choi won't need surgery. Instead, he'll spend his time away resting and rehabbing while wearing a walking boot. The veteran, who was acquired from Tampa Bay in November, was batting .125 with two home runs and two RBI before going on the shelf, so his absence won't impact many fantasy managers. In a corresponding move, Drew Maggi was called up from Double-A.

    5:37pm: Zastryzny’s shutdown period lasts seven to ten days, not weeks, Mackey clarifies (Twitter link). Tomczyk had misspoken during his initial update. That obviously changes the southpaw’s recovery timetable significantly and reduces the chances he’ll find himself on the 60-day IL. 1:19pm: The Pirates placed first baseman Ji-Man Choi on the 10-day injured list due to…

  • Pirates Place Ji-Man Choi On IL, Recall Tucupita Marcano

    Headshot for Ji-Man Choi

    The Pirates announced they have placed first-baseman/designated hitter Ji-Man Choi on the 10-day injured list retroactive to yesterday with a strained left achilles. Infielder Tucupita Marcano has been recalled from Triple-A. Choi, 31, was off to a slow start with the Pirates, hitting just .125/.125/.344 with a pair of home runs through his first 32…

  • Ji Man Choi Lands On 10-Day IL

    Headshot for Ji-Man Choi

    Pittsburgh Pirates first baseman/designated hitter Ji Man Choi (Achilles) landed on the 10-day injured list on Saturday, retroactive to April 14. The 31-year-old has struggled this season, batting a miserable .125 with four hits, two RBI, and two home runs while striking out 15 times. Hopefully, his stint on the IL will allow his nagging Achilles strain to heal. But until Choi is ready to return, Carlos Santana will spend the most time at first, with Connor Joe also getting involved.
