Pirates Photos from Spring Training

A few shots from today’s routine drills, with the emphasis on new guys. ¬†Of the NRI pitchers the Pirates have brought in, Daniel Schlereth and Jake Brigham strike me as the most interesting.

Outfielder Chris Dickerson has not been in drills the last two days, so he may have some minor injury or other issue.

The once and future outfield?

    That’s quite a who’s who of “Who?”s :) (Outfield shot excepted, of course.)

      I thought the names underneath were the guys who took the pictures.

    Any sightings of Karstens?

    • WTM

      Haven’t seen him.

        Karstens was at the spring training camp on Friday but did not come out of the batting cage area. He was dressed in workout shorts and a T-Shirt but not Pirate gear. We called for him to come over but he did not. I assume he was there to say hello to all the guys.

    Is that the baseball equivalent of a halo over Mr. McCutchen’s head ??

    I mean, c’mon. Sure, he’s good. But not THAT good.

    Unless there are some cosmic forces hard at work down there in Bradenton . . .

    Wowser !!

    It looks like Jaff Decker is starting to live up to that Matt Stairs comparison.

    • WTM

      I thought about calling him Wild Man Decker.

      Just watched him have a pretty good BP. Showed some pop.

    Thanks for the pics, Mr. Miller. Question for you: have you seen Luis Heredia in camp yet? Just wondering what kind of shape he’s in. I hope he learned his lesson last year.

    • WTM

      Minor league workouts start tomorrow i think. Pretty sure he’s supposed to be in much better shape this time but i haven’t seen him.

    • WTM

      Just saw Heredia. Looks in real good shape. Drastically different from last spring.

        Excellent! Thank you!

    Yeah, I was a little surprised by that pic, the first I’ve seen of Jaff. From his profile (little power, high OBP, can play CF) I imagined a Alex Pressley body type. Not even close.
