Ohlendorf unlikely to start Saturday

Ross Ohlendorf is unlikely to make his next scheduled start on Saturday, according to Dejan Kovacevic.  Ohlendorf missed his last start on Monday, and was replaced by Brian Burres.  Kovacevic said that Burres or Daniel McCutchen are candidates for the start on Saturday. The only way McCutchen can make the start is if Ohlendorf goes on the disabled list.  McCutchen was recently optioned to the minors, and players...

Zack Dodson Spring Training Videos

Zach Von Rosenberg Spring Training Videos

Here are a few videos I got of Pittsburgh Pirates prospect Zach Von Rosenberg during an inter-squad game at Pirate City in Spring Training.  I’m not taking too much off of these videos, as it’s an inter-squad game, and Spring Training, so it would be unfair to make any judgements, good or bad.  His control was off at times, but at other times you could see why the Pirates thought enough of him to draft...
