The Bucco lineup against the Bronx Bombers:
The Lineup: Andrew McCutchen CF, Chase d’Arnaud 2B, Pedro Alvarez 3B, Matt Diaz LF, Garrett Jones RF, Steve Pearce 1B, Chris Snyder C, Pedro Ciriaco SS and Kevin Correia P.
The Pitchers: Kevin Correia, Charlie Morton, Aaron Thompson, Tony Watson and Justin Thomas.
Game time is 7:05 in Tampa. Corriea will start against the Yankees' Bartolo Colon, and the game will be broadcast on FM Newstalk 104.7 and the Pirates Radio Network. Coverage begins at 7:00 PM.
-- Hurdle isn't afraid to shake and bake the spring lineup. McCutch is leading off, Pedro is batting third, and Matt Diaz is clean-up. We like that he's giving Steve Pearce and Pedro Ciriaco some quality time against the real Yankees, too, instead of bringing them in at the end against the NY rag-tags.
He also has Morton penciled in early so he'll go against the MLB lineup.
