Good morning from Pirate City.
– Today’s scheduled pitchers to throw live BP:
Field 1: A.J. Burnett, Jeff Locke, Logan Kensing, Tim Wood
Field 2: Jeff Karstens, Daniel Moskos, Bryan Morris, Mike Crotta
Field 3: Kyle McPherson, Rudy Owens, Jared Hughes
Field 4: Kevin Correia, Gerrit Cole, Justin Wilson, Duke Welker
The pitchers will throw “two innings”, 18 pitches per inning, 40 pitches max.
– Last Monday when A.J. Burnett arrived to camp and took Daniel McCutchen’s No. 34, he said he wasn’t sure what he would give him yet, but planned on teasing and playing with him about it for a little bit. Yesterday, McCutchen said that Burnett wrote a check in exchange for the jersey to College American 529, which is a college fund set up for his unborn daughter.
– Curtosy of the Pirates, here is a video interview with lefty reliever Daniel Moskos.
