The Pittsburgh Pirates start minicamp tomorrow in Bradenton. We took a look at the invites last week and notably who wasn’t in attendance. The players we focused on were the veterans such as Ryan Doumit and Chris Snyder.
Today we learn that Paul Maholm will also be absent. What a shame.
The Pirates GM Neal Huntington was quoted today by Rob Beirtempfel of the Trib. He was aked about the lack of attendance to the non mandatory offseason camp by members of his team.
“In a perfect world, we’d have everybody (attend), that’s the goal. Short of that, no, I’m not happy with the turnout.”—-Neal Huntington
Rob will be tweeting during the minicamp so be sure to jump on Twitter. We learned today that Tony Sanchez will be in attendance and also the Bucs are out on Brian Fuentes. Here is his tweet on Fuentes:
