Pirates at Tampa Bay, 1:05 PM; Charlie Morton vs. Jeff Niemann.
Lineup: Pedro Ciriaco CF, Josh Rodriguez SS, John Bowker LF, Ryan Doumit C, Steve Pearce 3B, Matt Diaz R), Andy Marte 1B, Corey Wimberly 2B and Charlie Morton P.
Pitching: Charlie Morton, Joel Hanrahan and Jose Veras.
-- The Bucs sent RHP Daniel McCutchen to Indy and assigned RHPs Tyler Yates, Sean Gallagher, IF Josh Fields and C Wyatt Toregas to minor league camp. Everybody in a battle for a bench spot - Ciriaco, Rodriguez, Wimbley, Pearce, Bowker, Marte - is in the lineup today, and many out of their normal position.
-- Joe Beimel isn't on a recovery schedule to begin the season, nor is J-Mac, so we'll see where that leads.
