Karstens not likely to miss another start

MILWAUKEE -- The Pirates got some good news on Friday. It appears right-handed starter Jeff Karstens' right arm fatigue is not likely to cost him another start.

After missing his last start on Wednesday, Karstens now looks to be on pace to make his scheduled start on Tuesday in Chicago. Karstens threw at Miller Park on Friday before the Pirates' series opener with the Brewers.

"He had a light side today," said Pirates manager John Russell. "It went good."
