Bucs v Rays, Camp Notes

Today: The Pirates host the Rays at 1:05 at LECOM Park, with the game on AT&T SportsNet and 93.7 The Fan. Opening Day starter Ivan Nova hits the hill, followed by Felipe Rivero, George Kontos, Michael Feliz and Nick Kingham.

Yesterday: A day of rest; no game scheduled.

  • As it gets closer to rug-cutting time, here are the players on the 40-man who are out of options and either have to make the team or risk being lost: OF Bryce Brentz, C Elias Diaz, P George Kontos, P AJ Schugel & P Nik Turley. Diaz and Kontos are locks to go north, Brentz is on the bubble and Shugel (shoulder) & Turley (post-TJ) injured.
  • Anthony Castrovince of MLB. com picks each team's most indispensable player ("...whose long-term absence or major performance decline would have their clubs scrambling, if not stumbling.") and selects Starling Marte as the Buccos' MIP. 
  • 2B Dilson Herrera has cleared waivers after being outrighted by the Reds. He was once the Pirates next big thing.
