Thursday is the last day of live coverage from the Pittsburgh Pirates’ winter mini-camp. You can use this thread to discuss anything Pirates-related on your mind.
Just like the previous three days, any minor news or notes will be posted here, while any big news will have it’s own article. We have articles coming up on Jon Niese and Josh Bell, but right now everyone is waiting to talk to Gregory Polanco, who arrived at camp on Wednesday.
More of the usual today with batting, fielding and throwing. We posted another video on Instagram/Twitter of John Jaso and Josh Bell working out at first base. This is shorter than the first one, which was over three minutes, but the latest one shows them making throws to second base. That was an issue for Bell in 2015.
Later tonight, MLB Network will have their yearly show ranking the top ten players at each position. It’s an hour long show with interesting discussions and rankings from 5-6 people each show. It’s starts tonight at 9pm with center fielders and at 10pm they will have the shortstops. We will have an article up later tonight after the rankings are revealed.
34 days until pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training.
