Pirates starter on Sunday up in air

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review speculates that it could be uber-prospect Glasnow,  Juan Nicasio (being activated from restricted list),  Chad Kuhl, or simply a bullpen game with Lobstein/A.J. Schugel giving it a go.
One candidate is righty Chad Kuhl (6-2, 2.58), who is slated to pitch Saturday for Indianapolis. A more likely possibility is having Kyle Lobstein and A.J. Schugel piggyback each other.

Nicasio was in the rotation but had to leave to attend family matters, but has since returned to the team. He should be activated this weekend but will they let him start?

It would seem that Nicasio is the likely starter, since he’s been in the rotation all year and has missed only one turn, unless he’s being replaced in the rotation by Glasnow.
