Pirates at Orioles GL3 Preview, Matt Weiters Fact, Pirates Fantasy Outlook and Tillmans Cutter


First off, a Matt Weiters Fact.  Scott Boras Hired Matt Wieters As His Agent.

Chris Tillman is on the bump tonight and he is working on a cutter to go with that 12-to-6 curveball.  [CAMDEN CRAZIES]

The Pirates lineup is interesting without Cutch:

Aki Iwamura, 2B

Jose Tabata, LF


Ryan Doumit, C

Steve Pearce, 1B

Brandon Moss, DH

Ronny Cedeno, SS

Neil Walker, 3B

John Raynor, RF


Adam Jones, CF

Robert Andino, SS

Nick Markakis, RF

Miguel Tejada, 3B

Matt Wieters, C

Luke Scott, DH

Garrett Atkins, 1B

Jonathan Tucker, LF

Justin Turner, 2B

Zach Duke will go 2/45 followed by  Daniel McCutchen who is penciled in to do the same.

The Virge attempts to get back on track after DCutch followed by Evan Meek, Javier Lopez and Jeremy Powell.

From the Baltimore Sun this afternoon after the Pirates lineup was listed, this was the comment:

…glad I’m not a Pirates fan – just look at their lineup. Hey, I know it’s a spring training road game, but who are those guys kidding?

A positive Pirates Fantasy Outlook from Scott White.  I don’t think Lauren Shehadi is a fantasy player, just a guess.
