Pittsburgh Pirates 2013 Extended Spring Training Roster

Pittsburgh Pirates 2013 Extended Spring Training Roster

Spring Training is over for the full season teams, but for players who will start the year in Jamestown, the Gulf Coast League, or the Dominican Summer League, there’s extended Spring Training. Extended Spring Training works similar to regular Spring Training in minor league camp. The team works out in the morning, then plays games in the afternoon against the Phillies, Blue Jays, and Yankees.

The following players are on the Pirates’ extended Spring Training roster. They will start the 2013 season in either Jamestown, the Gulf Coast League, or the Dominican Summer League. You may see some of these players show up on the Bradenton Marauders’ roster when the Marauders need an injury replacement. Some of the veterans could show up in Altoona or Indianapolis to fill in for an in-season injury. There are also guys who are rehabbing, and will join a full season team when healthy.

    I attend the STH games on Mon-Wed-Fri and take pictures. Look for me post lots of images on my Bradenton Marauders fan page.

  • jalcorn

    Tim, it was my impression that Heredia was ticketed for WV when the weather warms up (like Taillon year 1), is that not correct?

    Also, what is up with Barnes, shouldn’t he be at high A now?

    • Tim Williams

      That’s the word I got about Heredia. He’s hardly thrown this Spring, but should start getting action now that the extended games have started.

  • Rebel

    Heredia isn’t going anywhere until his velocity improves…. 85-87.

    • jg941

      Seriously? 85-87?

    • jalcorn

      Really, where did you see that?

  • Rebel

    Barnes is almost ready. strained oblique few weeks ago…

    • Tim Williams

      He’s healthy now, but getting some extra at-bats.

  • Steve Zielinski

    I did not see the de la Rosas on the list. That does not make sense unless, of course, they have no chance of making a team in the states.

    • Steve Zielinski

      Er, I mean de la Cruzs.

  • jimfalbo21

    Tim, I know Ali Solis and Chase D’Arnaud are hurt, but where are they working out? Also wondering about Erik Cordier and Kyle Waldrop?

    • Tim Williams

      Solis and d’Arnaud are both there. Neither were on the roster I received, which was updated on Tuesday. Cordier was also there. Didn’t see Waldrop, but that doesn’t mean he’s not there. Just a lot of players to keep track of.

  • David Lint

    What happened with Singh? An injury?
