Pirates Release 2015 Schedule

The Pittsburgh Pirates have released their 2015 schedule, which can be seen below. The opening series will be in Cincinnati, followed by the home opener against the Detroit Tigers on Monday, April 13th. The Pirates will also host the Minnesota Twins, the Chicago White Sox, and the Cleveland Indians. They will visit Chicago, Detroit, Kansas City, and Minnesota.

From a playoff and division standpoint, they don’t play the Cardinals until May 1st. They play them six times during September and October, including three games at home at the end of the year, followed by three games at home against the Reds. The Pirates also play the Brewers seven times in September, including four home games. They have six games against the Cubs in the final month, and six against the Reds.

Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.

Can’t we do things like an SEC football team and play nobody but the Cubs, Diamondbacks, and Rockies in April?

Wow just 4 games against the Phillies and all of them in Philadelphia. So much for the good old 70’s rivalry.


Huh? Phillies are at PNC June 12-14.

Oops, thanks. I only took a quick gander at it, and missed that. I’m glad to know they get a home series too.


Don’t we also host Detroit, our American League mirror, who we play 3 home and 3 away?


4/13 seems really late for the home opener, looks like the whole schedule is a week later than normal. At least we get to play what should be our interleague rival, Cleveland


I thought the same thing jalcorn. Who knows, maybe it won’t snow at the home opener this year.


Based on that… 91-71 🙂
