Pirates pitcher Jeff Locke throws eight innings in win Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Jeff Locke tossed eight innings Saturday, allowing just one run in Pittsburgh's 6-2 win over the Brewers Saturday.

Locke struggled in the first inning a bit where he allowed back-to-back singles to open the game. Then Jonathan Lucroy added a sacrifice fly to open the scoring. However, after the first, Locke controlled the game, allowing just two more hits in the final seven.

"His fastball command was good. He stood them up," manager Clint Hurdle said to MLB.com. "He used the glove side, mixed in a curve that played extremely well. And the changeup … Each (pitch) fed off the other."

He added six strikeouts and no walks to his totals and now boasts a 1.93 ERA. He will look to keep things rolling Thursday against the Cubs, where he has a good 1-1 record with a 3.81 ERA.

Pirates name Jeff Locke to rotation, Vance Worley heads to bullpen
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Pirates named pitcher Jeff Locke as the fifth starter in the rotation Monday, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Locke wasn't at his best this spring, giving up 10 earned runs in 13 2/3 innings while posting a 9:5 K:BB ratio, but he is still set to open the season in the rotation. He went 7-6 with a 3.91 ERA and 89:40 K:BB ratio in 131 1/3 innings in 2014.

Vance Worley, who was Locke's primary competition for the role, will head to the bullpen after allowing 10 earned runs in 17 innings while striking out 11 and walking one.

"With these two men … we wrestled all over with this, right down to their ages. And they're both 27," Hurdle said. per MLB.com. "Both worked so hard and wanted to be the guy. We looked at the [time] Jeff has been in the [Pittsburgh] uniform. We feel that getting out of the gate, we wanted to start with Locke in the rotation."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Pirates starting pitcher Jeff Locke allowed two runs on eight hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings during a 4-2 win Thursday against the Twins. Locke (2-2) struck out two.

Locke, who is competing with Vance Worley for the final spot in the rotation, has a 6.59 ERA through five spring appearances (four starts). He has nine strikeouts through 13 2/3 innings.

"I like the way he went out today," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said to MLB.com. "He was challenged [pitching] out of the stretch in the first inning, but he continued to compete and make pitches and stay away from the big inning."

Pirates P Jeff Locke yet to cement fifth spot in rotation
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Jeff Locke is struggling to earn the team's fifth spot in the rotation for the team. In eight innings of Grapefruit League action, he has given up 11 hits, two walks and eight runs with an ERA of 9.00.

“I just left some pitches over the plate,” Locke said. “They just fell in.”

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle has named four of the five starting pithcers already. But he is no closer to making a decision on the fifth spot.

“We don't need to at this point in time,” Hurdle said. 

Locke was asked whether or not he could succeed coming out of the bullpen.

“I don't know. I think I could pitch well. I've done it very few times in the big leagues in situations that haven't mattered,” Locke said. “It's a completely different routine. You're not going to throw 40 pitches in the pen before you go out.

“If me coming out of out of the bullpen is what Clint (Hurdle), Ray (Searage) and Neal (Huntington) think is what's going to better this ball club, then that's the decision we need to take going forward. At the same time, that's not where I feel I'm best suited.”
