Live Discussion: Pirates at Tigers, 1:05 PM


The Pittsburgh Pirates are on the road today to take on the Detroit Tigers. The Pirates lost 3-1 yesterday to the Toronto Blue Jays, dropping them to a 3-13-2 record this spring, the worst winning percentage in baseball (4-12 Seattle Mariners are second worst). Today’s game will be broadcast live on MLB Network and radio will be available on MLB.com.

Here’s the lineup for today:

  1. Guillermo Heredia, CF
  2. Erik Gonzalez, 2B
  3. Jose Osuna, DH
  4. Colin Moran, 1B
  5. John Ryan Murphy, C
  6. JT Riddle, 3B
  7. Cole Tucker, SS
  8. Jared Oliva, LF
  9. Socrates Brito, RF

Derek Holland will be making the start. He will be followed by Chris Stratton, Dovydas Neverauskas and Robbie Erlin.

Bench includes Jake Elmore, Phillip Evans, Jason Martin, Christian Kelley, Charlie Tilson, Hunter Owen and Dylan Busby.

Chad Kuhl will be pitching two innings in a sim game today (probably already happened) and Chris Archer, Michael Feliz and Richard Rodriguez will all throw in a sim game tomorrow due to the off-day for the Pirates.

For those of you who enjoy the umpire show more than the game itself, Joe West will be behind the plate.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball. When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.
