Pirates Have Pitching Personnel Conducive To Trying Something Revolutionary

PITTSBURGH — On Friday, Rays manager Kevin Cash announced that his club would do something not often tried in Major League Baseball: Deploy a relief pitcher as his starter.

What Do Starting Pitchers Do on Their ‘Off’ Days, Anyway?

Ivan Nova was the Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Tuesday night. Wednesday, he’ll mostly be “a cheerleader.” Such is the life of a starting pitcher. Day of the week? Doesn’t matter. The city they’re in? They might not even play there. It’s all about what day it is in the five-day cycle. There’s the day they […]

Chad Kuhl Might Have Saved His Starting Job With Sunday’s Gem

Chad Kuhl tied an MLB career high in innings pitched (seven) and matched a career low in hits allowed (one) during his outstanding start Sunday at Milwaukee, helping the Pirates improve to 4-0 in series against National League Central teams this season. Beyond the team context, which is obviously important, it’s valid to wonder if […]

Jokes Aside, Pirates Pitchers Adding Value On The Margins

PITTSBURGH – Is there a parallel between Major League Baseball pitchers attempting to engage in offense and anything else in major professional sports?

Did Complete Game Set Jameson Taillon Back? Is It Something Else?

PITTSBURGH — Jameson Taillon’s complete-game blanking of the Reds on April 8 was a first in his professional career, but did it come at a cost beyond a Gatorade shower on a chilly day? To wit: Since the nine-inning outing, Taillon has pitched 11 1/3 innings, allowing 12 runs on 14 hits … and that’s […]

Facing First Losing Streak, Pirates Got Timely Depth Charge

PITTSBURGH — The Pirates had run into their first real roadblock of their 2018 season, having lost two miserable, blustery games to the Rockies at PNC Park. For Wednesday afternoon’s pleasingly sun-splashed series finale at PNC Park, not only did Clint Hurdle start with Gregory Polanco, Francisco Cervelli, Corey Dickerson and Colin Moran on the […]

Live Discussion: Pirates 10, Rockies 2

PITTSBURGH — Good teams avoid losing streaks. Or is it that teams that avoid losing streaks become good? Either way, the Pirates’ hopes of validating their opening 15 games rest upon not giving it back before the end of April. Getting swept at home in this mini-stand at PNC Park wouldn’t inspire confidence, even if […]

Pirates Notebook: Cervelli is Swinging a Hot Bat; Taillon Stretches Himself...

BRADENTON, Fla. — Francisco Cervelli is a pretty animated baseball player. If you’ve been paying any attention to his Pirates’ career, you’ve probably noticed the fiery catcher get heated once or twice.

Which Chad Kuhl Will the Pirates Get in 2018?

BRADENTON, Fla. — In more ways than one, Chad Kuhl was a completely different pitcher from the start of the 2017 season to the end of the 2017 season. In the first half of the season, Kuhl made 18 starts, pitched 85.1 innings and had a 4.96 ERA. In the second half of the season, […]

BRADENTON, Fla. — The Pirates are approaching the portion of spring training in which it’s time to worry less about mechanics and more about competing. Fortunately for Chad Kuhl, that rising level of urgency lined up with a bounce-back outing. After allowing eight runs on seven hits in 2 1/3 innings last Saturday against the […]
