Pirates Pedro Alvarez looking to stick at first base
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Pirates first baseman Pedro Alvarez is hoping to stick at his new position after converting from third base, reports triblive.com.

On opening day, Alvarez will be the team's 54th first baseman in its 129-year history.

“It's a matter of getting used to seeing the field from that point of view,” Alvarez said. “I need to get the reps in so the responsibilities that come with playing that position become second nature to me.”

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington talked about the team's past efforts of platooning the position.

“You can't develop something you don't have. You can't buy something you can't afford,” general manager Neal Huntington said. “That's why we've tried to platoon. Over the last couple of years, we've realized that's a challenge for a National League manager. Platoons are much harder here than they are in the American League, especially with a one-dimensional player who can only play one position.”

The hope around the organization is that they can get quality production from Alvarez.

“Our hope that is between Pedro Alvarez and Corey Hart, we'll get quality major league production,” Huntington said.

The 28-year-old is batting .306 with two home runs, nine RBI and eight strikeouts this spring.

Pirates pitcher Charlie Morton can't find a rhythm Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Charlie Morton tossed six innings Saturday against the Blue Jays, allowing six hits, including two home runs and no strikeouts. Morton, who is fighting for a spot in the starting rotation, is still recovering from labrum surgery six months ago.

"Physically, Charlie is in a good place," manager Clint Hurdle said to MLB.com. "He is trying to make some mechanical adjustments in his delivery, but we don't have any health concerns about him."

Morton isn't worried about fixing mechanical issues just yet.

"Now is a tough time to put a lot of emphasis on mechanics," said Morton. "I gotta go pitch, adjustments or no adjustments."

Pirates SP Jeff Locke picks up second spring win
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 GM: Jung Ho Kang will be on our Opening Day roster
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington told reporters that he still plans to have Jung Ho Kang on the Opening Day roster, despite his recent struggles this spring, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Manager Clint Hurdle indicated last week that Kang's timing issues at the plate may have to do with his leg kick that begins his swing. Kang, who spent his previous nine baseball seasons in the Korean Baseball Organization, is hitting .111 in 11 Grapefruit League games.
