Pittsburgh Pirates 2014 Spring Training Tracker

This weekend I uploaded the Pittsburgh Pirates 2014 Spring Training Tracker to the site. This is the fourth year in a row that we’ve had the tracker on the site. Prior to Spring Training it will show all of the non-roster invitees who are invited to camp, along with the chances of each player making the Opening Day roster.
