BRADENTON, Fla. -- Pirates manager Clint Hurdle laid out his starting pitching for the club's first four games of the Grapefruit League schedule, beginning on Wednesday with the opener at McKechnie Field against the Yankees and through Saturday's home game against the Rays.
All of those four games are scheduled to start at 1:05 p.m. ET.
"That gives you something to push forward on," Hurdle said.
On the other two games, Hurdle said, "You'll get the bullpen guys later."
