Cubs-Pirates Preview

(AP) -- With All-Star pitcher A.J. Burnett on the shelf, the Pittsburgh Pirates picked up J.A. Happ before the trade deadline, and he's hoping a change of scenery will result in some improved performances.

The left-hander will make his Pittsburgh debut Tuesday night when he squares off with the Chicago Cubs' Jake Arrieta in a shortened series between playoff contenders.

With Burnett placed on the disabled list Friday, the Pirates (61-43) made use of a closing trading window that same day to get Happ from Seattle. He could get plenty of starts with Burnett out for at least four weeks because of a strained flexor tendon in his right elbow.
