After appearing in five rehab games with Class A Advanced Bradenton, Doumit was scheduled to catch seven innings in Indianapolis' games on Tuesday and Thursday. He will serve as the designated hitter on Wednesday and Friday before catching a full nine innings for the first time on Saturday.
Doumit will be limited to pinch-hit duty on Sunday, after which Doumit will catch back-to-back games next week. The Pirates will reevaluate his status in about a week. By the time Doumit returns from the ankle injury, he will have missed more than two months.
