Doumit sees 1st action since wrist injury
Doumit was hitless in two at-bats with a walk in the first of two scheduled appearances for rookie league Bradenton.
"I'll play one more game here [Saturday], then go to Indy [Triple-A Indianapolis] for four or five games. Then I will be back up with the team," Doumit said. "The wrist feels good. It felt good to get back out on a baseball field and break a bit of a sweat."
Pirates general manager Neal Huntington has said Doumit is not expected back until after the All-Star game.
Doumit's injury, which occurred while he was batting against Atlanta, required surgery and a lengthy healing time before he could resume throwing and hitting.
