Pirates Notebook: Cole, Glasnow, and Hutchison Featured This Afternoon

BRADENTON, Fla. - The Pirates had Gerrit Cole, Tyler Glasnow, and Drew Hutchison pitching today, throwing out their top of the rotation starter and two guys competing for the final spot. Prior to the game, the three had an amusing encounter in the clubhouse that started with Glasnow approaching Cole.

"He just came up to me and said 'I'm a little nervous,'" Cole said. "And I said 'I'm a little nervous too.' Then Hutch was like 'Dude, I'm nervous.' It was great. Anytime you can share a moment like that with your teammates is kind of cool."

It's hard to take much from a Spring Training outing, good or bad. Cole and Hutchison had good outings today, while Glasnow had a rough appearance, compared to his last time out against the Orioles. Here is a breakdown of each player:
