PITCHING MATCHUP: Pirates LH Steven Brault (3-3, 4.06 ERA) vs. Rockies RH Jeff Hoffman (1-4, 7.81)

Brault received a no-decision last Tuesday after allowing three runs over five innings against Philadelphia. The 27-year-old native Californian has gone 2-2 with a 3.55 ERA in 14 starts this season and surrendered just three home runs over 72 1/3 innings in his last 14 appearances. Brault is 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA in two career games (one start) versus Colorado and owns a 3-0 record and 4.50 ERA in 10 appearances (seven starts) on the road this season.

Hoffman is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque to make a spot start with both Kyle Freeland and Jon Gray on the injured list. The former first-round draft pick has had a disappointing campaign at the major league level with a 43-to-18 strikeout-to-walk ratio over nine starts covering 40 1/3 innings. Hoffman pitched two scoreless innings and threw 29 pitches while starting for the Isotopes on Wednesday.
