The Pirates will have two intrasquad games here this afternoon. I won't be live blogging, since it's hard to live blog and keep track of two games. However, starting today I'll have a Prospect Notebook at the end of the day, with my thoughts on what I saw from the day's games. The Minor League camp schedule starts today, and games against other teams start on Wednesday, so I'll have a lot to cover in the Notebook.
I don't have much information on who is playing yet, but here's what I've got for a few of the teams.
Game One: Sharks vs Lions
Tim Alderson will be starting for the Sharks. Quinton Miller will be starting for the Lions. Brian Leach will replace Alderson and Zach Foster will be replacing Leach. Eliecer Navarro will be replacing Miller.
Game Two: Crocs vs Tigers
The Crocs will be throwing Colton Cain, followed in order by Jameson Taillon, Matt Benedict, and Vincent Payne. The Tigers will throw Stetson Allie, followed by Orlando Castro, Bryce Weidman, and Logan Pevny.
