Huntington Notes on the Bench Battle, Final Rotation Spot, Kang, Richard,...

The Pittsburgh Pirates made their latest round of cuts today, sending 12 players to minor league camp. None of the moves were that surprising, as every single player sent down was expected to be cut from big league camp at some point this Spring. The one notable name was Jose Tabata. He wasn’t notable because […]

Vance Worley Strikes Out Top Prospects Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano...

The Pittsburgh Pirates played a B Game at Pirate City this morning, going up against the Minnesota Twins. The B Games at Pirate City are incredibly relaxed, without the typical structure that you see in a regular Spring Training game. That was seen today at the end of Vance Worley’s third inning. The right-hander retired […]

The Details of Jose Tabata’s New Swing

On Friday I wrote about how Jose Tabata talked to Marlon Byrd over the off-season, aimed at changing his swing to add some leverage, lift the ball, and avoid hitting grounders and weak line drives. So far the results have been encouraging during batting practice, with Tabata now showing the ability to pull the ball, […]

First Pitch: In the Best Shape of His Life

Spring Training is a wonderfully optimistic time. Most players enter a new season by picking up where they left off the year before, and the assumption is that they will pick up where they left off, or they will improve. Then you’ve got the other group — the guys who struggled. You don’t want to think […]

Jose Tabata Changed His Swing After Talking With Marlon Byrd

Yesterday, Jose Tabata put one on the roof of the batting cages over the left-field fence at Pirate City. Today, he added two more. By that pattern, he should hit three over the high fence in left in batting practice tomorrow. It’s only batting practice, but the power to left field is surprising. Tabata didn’t […]

Q&A: Will PNC Park Burn Down When Neil Walker Eventually Leaves?

Last week we started a Q&A article that will run every Friday. Right after the first article went up, we got a lot more questions. Normally I’ll be taking about five questions per week (and maybe addressing some of the common ones in First Pitch articles). You can submit your questions all week by using […]

Does Andrew Lambo Have the Final Bench Spot Locked Down?

For most of the off-season, it looked like the Pittsburgh Pirates had every spot on their bench locked up. Then came the trade of Travis Snider to the Baltimore Orioles, which put one of the spots in question, and gave us one semi-real roster battle for Spring Training on the position player side of things (the […]
