Notes From Pirate City: Locke Making First Minor League Start

The Pirates take on Toronto’s organization today, with the AAA and AA teams at home. Unfortunately the A-ball teams have Jameson Taillon, Stetson Allie, Zack Von Rosenberg, and a lot of other younger guys throwing on the road so I won’t get to report on their outings today. I will get to see Jeff Locke making his first minor league start since being cut from big league camp, and the home schedule has some other guys to look forward to.

Here are the pitching rotations and lineups for each team.
