Pirates' Liriano draws Opening Day start for second straight year
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle announced Tuesday starting pitcher Francisco Liriano will start Opening Day (April 6) against the Reds. It will be the second straight year Liriano starts on opening day for Pittsburgh.

Hurdle also announced Tuesday starting pitcher Gerrit Cole will start the second game of the season and A.J. Burnett will finish off the three-game series before Pittsburgh moves onto a three-game series at Milwaukee.

Hurdle added Vance Worley or Jeff Locke, who are competing for the final spot in the team's rotation, will start the fourth game of the season and Charlie Morton will start the fifth game. Hurdle said splitting up Burnett and Morton was important because they have similar pitching styles.

Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole throws 65 pitches Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole threw 3 2/3 innings Saturday, using 65 pitches in his outing against the Red Sox. Cole was happy to get as much work as he could Saturday, reports MLB.com.

"Yeah, I'm glad I got up to the max," Cole said. "I started to get a little fatigued at the end, so it was nice to still be able to make some quality pitches in the fourth … outside of the one [Mike] Napoli deposited again."

Cole has yet to be named the opening day starter for Pittsburgh and manager Clint Hurdle didn't mind what he saw from him in his outing,

"We wanted Cole to throw between 65 and 70 pitches, so we got that checked off," Cole said. "He was out there to work on specific things: Throw his breaking balls and changeup,and the offside pitches were mostly strikes. It was a good outing for him, on effort, consistency, focus."

Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole taking strides to prevent injuries in 2015
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole knows all too well what a injuries can do to a season. The right-hander is making an extra effort this spring to prevent having a similar fate to 2014, where he spent 70 days on the disabled list with shoulder injuries, reports The Pittsburgh Tribune.

"There was nothing structurally wrong with me. … I was fortunate," Cole said. "After I came off the rehab, I just kept that routine through the end of the season. I didn't deviate. It's what got me healthy, and it's what kept me healthy along with the mindset change."

Cole is continuing to grow through maintenance with the shoulder to prevent any flare ups.

"(Trainers) always say the rotator cuff is like bicycle brakes, and you have a V-12 engine in the front," Cole said. "You have to do maintenance on those things and be able to keep them in shape to slow the arm down."

Pirates' Hurdle on Cole's spring debut: 'A good step forward'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Wednesday that pitcher Gerrit Cole "did fine" in his spring debut, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

"He probably threw more pitches than he wanted to in the first inning," Hurdle said. "But he didn't back off and kept the damage to a minimum. He had some good angle to his breaking balls and used his two-seamer well. A good step forward."

Cole, who surrendered one earned run on one hit and one walk while striking out three in two innings Wednesday, said he wasn't worried about the outcome but wanted to get on the same page with new catcher Francisco Cervelli.

"I told (Cervelli) I wasn't going to shake him off," Cole said. "I was just going to see how he wanted to do my stuff so he could get a feel for how he wants to call the game. I think it'll be that way for probably awhile. He'll get some information. I'll get some information, and then we'll probably sit down (to talk)."

Gerrit Cole strikes out 12 in Pirates loss Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole didn't factor into the decision Sunday, giving up one earned run on four hits in seven innings while striking out 12, but the Pirates fell 4-1 to the Reds to lose a chance at taking the NL Central title.

Cole did everything he needed to put the Pirates within a half-game of the Cardinals, but the bullpen betrayed the starter after he left the game with the score tied 1-1. The Pirates will face the Giants in the Wild Card game. Cole ends the regular season with a 3.65 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 138:40 K:BB ratio in 138 innings.
