I’ve been getting a lot of content at Pirate City the last two days, with the early arrival players now in camp. Yesterday I did a notes article on what I saw. I don’t have any notes today, since most of what I was doing this morning was getting the final information I needed for featured articles and videos the next two days. I’ve got a video feature on Connor Joe going up on the site shortly, along with an article on Stephen Tarpley and Steven Brault, the two pitchers acquired from the Baltimore Orioles in the Travis Snider trade.
There was one notable thing that happened today, and that was a batting practice group of Josh Bell, JaCoby Jones, and Austin Meadows. The Pirates have been doing a split batting cage the last two years, with two pitching machines throwing to two batters. They had that today, and the result is three minutes of non-stop batting practice from Bell (who hit from both sides), Jones, and Meadows.
