The Pittsburgh Pirates are holding their annual winter mini-camp at Pirate City this week. The four-day event is voluntary for any player on the 40-man roster and also includes some prospects not on the 40-man roster. Tim Williams will be providing live coverage of the camp. Players have been arriving since last night and more usually show up as it goes along. As I said, it’s voluntary for 40-man roster players, so they might be there one day, all four days or not at all.
So far on Monday morning we have seen the following players (partial list): Jameson Taillon, Josh Bell, Tyler Glasnow, Clay Holmes, Max Moroff, Austin Meadows, Kevin Newman, Dario Agrazal, Yeudy Garcia, Adam Frazier, Kevin Kramer, Tyler Eppler, Trevor Williams, Steven Brault, Luis Escobar, Nik Turley, Jordan Milbrath, Todd Cunningham, Nick Burdi. Those last four players have all been acquired since the start of the off-season.
UPDATE: 10:00 AM: Chad Kuhl also showed up. Tim Williams has been busy interviewing the new players (and some older ones)
I've already talked to Nick Burdi and Jordan Milbrath. Expect upcoming articles on the two Rule 5 picks. #Pirates

We have some videos today, including both Burdi and Milbrath throwing. Here’s Steven Brault and Trevor Williams having a catch.
Here’s Nick Burdi, taking it easy during his return from late-May Tommy John surgery
Here’s Rule 5 pick Jordan Milbrath. Have fun watching the movement on his pitches.
Here’s some batters, starting with Kevin Newman.
And here’s some power from Josh Bell. First from the right side…
Now from the left side…
How about some video of Max Moroff.
We will add notes to this thread as the day goes along.
