Francisco Liriano Named the Opening Day Starter; Is Locke Losing Ground to Worley?

On a day where Jeff Locke struggled on the mound — a few days after Vance Worley looked outstanding — Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle wasn’t ready to make a decision on the final spot in the rotation. “We don’t need to at this point in time,” Hurdle said. “They just got to 67 pitches.
