SAN DIEGO Shortstop Jack Wilson’s was scratched from tonight’s lineup against the Padres due to a sprained left middle finger.
Ramon Vazquez will start at short and bat seventh.
It’s the same finger Wilson injured during the April 13 home opener. Wilson missed three of the next four games because of the injury.
Friday night, Wilson played all 11 innings of the Pirates’ 4-3 loss against the Padres. In the 10th inning, he had trouble fielding Chase Headley’s grounder and wound up making an errant throw to first base.
