  • Pirates' Rowdy Tellez: Not in Thursday's lineup

  • Pirates' Rowdy Tellez: Reaches base four times

    Tellez went 3-for-4 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored Saturday against the Orioles.

    Tellez started his fourth straight game after beginning the season on the bench regularly due to several matchups against lefties. He tallied his second multi-hit game of the campaign, highlighted by an RBI single in the second inning. Tellez has primarily hit sixth in Pittsburgh's lineup and should remain on the large side of a platoon at first base.

  • Pirates' Rowdy Tellez: Sitting versus lefty

    Tellez is out of the lineup for Monday's game versus the Nationals.

    The Pirates are facing a fifth straight left-handed starting pitcher to begin the season, and the lefty-hitting Tellez has now been on the bench on three occasions. Connor Joe will start at first base Monday in Tellez's stead.

  • Pirates' Rowdy Tellez: Crushes three-run homer

    Tellez went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run during Sunday's 9-7 victory over the Marlins.

    Tellez earned the start against Marlins lefty starter Trevor Rogers and struck out three times prior to crushing a go-ahead three-run homer off right-handed reliever Vladimir Gutierrez in the seventh. It was the first homer of the season for Tellez, who started just two of the four games in Miami due to the Marlins' lefty-heavy rotation. The Pirates are scheduled to face a fifth-straight southpaw Monday in MacKenzie Gore of the Nationals, putting Tellez at risk of sitting for the third time in five games. However, Tellez is slated to be the primary first-basemen against righties, and as the Pirates' schedule normalizes, he will be in line for the bulk of the work.

  • Pirates' Rowdy Tellez: Returns to lineup

    Tellez (back) will start at first base and bat sixth for the Pirates in Monday's spring contest versus the Phillies, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

    Tellez was scratched from the Grapefruit League lineup over the weekend with a minor back issue, but he's fine. The 29-year-old is slated to be the Pirates' primary first baseman against right-handed pitching this season.

  • Pirates' Rowdy Tellez: Nursing back issue

    Tellez was scratched from Saturday's Grapefruit League lineup due to a minor back injury, Greg Brown of SportsNet Pittsburgh reports.

    The 29-year-old was pulled from the lineup due to an "abundance of caution," so he could return to game action within the next couple days. Assuming Tellez has no additional issues, he should begin the season as the Pirates' primary first baseman.

  • Pirates' Rowdy Tellez: Lands with Pittsburgh

    Tellez signed a one-year, $3.2 million contract with the Pirates on Tuesday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    Tellez spent over two seasons with the Brewers, and he will remain in the NL Central to fill the Pirates' opening at first base. The 28-year-old slugger took a major step back in 2023, slashing .215/.291/.376 with 13 home runs -- only one of which came after May 23. Despite his recent struggles, Tellez should begin the season as Pittsburgh's primary first baseman, though he will likely step out of the lineup against lefties in favor of Jared Triolo or Connor Joe.

  • Rowdy Tellez: Dropped by Milwaukee

    Tellez became a free agent Friday after being non-tendered by the Brewers, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Tellez slashed just .215/.291/.376 over 105 games (351 plate appearances) in 2023 and was left off the roster for the Brewers' NL Wild Card Series matchup against the Diamondbacks. He popped 35 home runs in 2022 and is only 28 years old, but it's a tough market out there for 1B/DH types.
