  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Rodriguez was healthy enough to play, but his surgically repaired left shoulder was never at full strength last year.
