It's a big blow to the Pirates (11-6), who began Saturday in first place in the NL Central, one game ahead of the Brewers. The loss of Marte, a 2016 All-Star and two-time Gold Glove winner, is especially tough for a team already dealing with the loss of three of their top four outfielders.

Right fielder Gregory Polanco (shoulder), who hasn't played this season, has appeared in four rehab games with Triple-A Indianapolis. Outfielder Lonnie Chisenhall (fractured finger), who also has yet to play this year, began his assignment on Friday. Left fielder Corey Dickerson (strained shoulder) has not made an appearance since April 3.

To fill Gonzalez and Marte's spots, the Pirates recalled shortstop Cole Tucker and selected outfielder Bryan Reynolds from Indianapolis.
