Pirates' Jason Rogers: Back in spring action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers is 1-for-4 across three spring games since returning from an ankle injury.

It appears Rogers is feeling better, as the 29-year-old has now played in three straight games after missing the majority of March with the ankle injury. He's expected to start the year at Triple-A Indianapolis, and given Pittsburgh's depth ahead of him at first base, it will be difficult for Rogers to earn big league playing time this season.

Pirates' Tony Watson: Team remains confident despite struggles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watson remains the Pirates' closer despite his recent struggles, GM Neal Huntington told SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio on Wednesday. "Watson has been one of the best performing relievers in baseball," Huntington said. "We're comfortable with him pitching in the ninth."

This vote of confidence is encouraging, coming on the heels of Watson's five-run blowup Sunday -- he recorded just two outs. Overall, Watson has given up eight runs on eight hits with a 6:3 K:BB this spring. The lefty's skills slipped again last season, with his 4.37 FIP suggesting he overachieved to a significant extent with a 3.06 ERA, but the Pirates seem to be content at the back end for the time being given Watson's larger body of work. Daniel Hudson is believed to be next in line for save chances in Pittsburgh.

Pirates' Starling Marte: 'Could play nine innings now'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marte said his ankle injury is better and he "could play nine innings now" if needed, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

The Pirates will continue to be careful with him for the remainder of spring, but this is encouraging news, as it doesn't appear the ankle injury will affect Marte's readiness to begin the season. The 28-year-old stole a career-high 47 bases in 2016 and is set to take over center field for the first time next season.

Pirates' Jameson Taillon: Looking to build on 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taillon allowed two runs on four hits and two walks in 4.1 innings Monday, striking out four.

The team hoped to have him go five innings but he reached his pitch limit ahead of schedule. Taillon, who has compiled a 3.65 ERA in 12.1 spring innings on nine hits and four walks while striking out 10, enters 2017 behind Gerrit Cole but has the potential to serve as the team's ace. He'll look to build off of an impressive rookie campaign in which he registered a 3.38 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 85:17 K:BB in 104 innings.

Pirates' John Jaso: Gets start at third base Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jaso is starting at third base against the Rays on Tuesday, the first start at the position of his professional career, Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The Pirates are looking at alternative spots for Jaso this spring as he's getting squeezed out of playing time at first base by switch-hitter Josh Bell. With Jung Ho Kang unlikely to be available by Opening Day, the Pirates are looking for depth options at third base, which could make Jaso the primary backup to David Freese while Kang is on the shelf.
