Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Ben Gamel is in the starting lineup for Wednesday afternoon's game against right-hander Dylan Cease and the Chicago White Sox.
Gamel will replace Phillip Evans in left field and hit sixth after being held out of Tuesday's lineup. Gamel appears to have leap-frogged Evans on the Pirates' depth chart.
