Hurdle: Frazier to see more time in LF in spring

Adam Frazier will see extra reps in left field for the Pirates to start the spring. With manager Clint Hurdle announcing that Gregory Polanco will be used exclusively in right and Starling Marte in center, the competition is on to fill the left-field spot. Frazier was among the players that Hurdle said would see increased time in left once Grapefruit League games start.

Bullpen race wide open in Bucs camp

Less than a week into Spring Training, the Pirates' rotation is all but officially set. They have one open spot in their outfield. They might have to make a tough decision or two as they fill out their bench. But what about their bullpen? That race looks to be wide open.


Marte ready to return to center in 2018

It was only a year ago the Pirates realigned their outfield and put Starling Marte in center, a 13-game experiment that ended with his 80-game suspension following a positive test for performance-enhancing drugs. When he returned, he did so as Pittsburgh's left fielder.

Hurdle says Pirates 'here to win games'

Much of the conversation around the Pirates over the last month has been about what they lost, not what remains -- about a roster without Andrew McCutchen and Gerrit Cole, a projected payroll cut by at least $15 million and a team with seemingly little chance to contend in the National League Central Division.

Rodriguez arrives healthy after offseason work

Late last September, Sean Rodriguez stood in front of his locker with his arms tucked at his sides, his hands in front of him and both palms facing up. He moved his hands apart, with his right forearm rotating close to 90 degrees but his left arm stopping short of that. Rodriguez was healthy enough to play, but his surgically repaired left shoulder was never at full strength last year.

The Pirates' vision -- before, during and since their three-year run of success that began in 2013 -- has been a window-less existence, a steady run in which they compete every season, never pushing all the way in or pulling all the way out. But their window closed with consecutive losing seasons, so they chose to trade franchise cornerstones Andrew McCutchen and Gerrit Cole. Now, they're "retooling" -- not rebuilding, they insist -- their roster around a young core.

The Pirates spent the long weekend reshaping their roster, trading a pair of cornerstone players for a haul of young talent. But the Pirates' next young ace may have been in their system all along.


Young talent keeps Bucs in position to compete

Over the last three days, the Pirates traded Andrew McCutchen and Gerrit Cole, the star player and pitcher for Pittsburgh's postseason teams from 2013-15. In return came a bundle of young talent the Bucs hope will lead them back to the playoffs in the near future.
