OTHER NOTES

Henry Davis may have been 0-for-3 at the plate on Monday but he continues to hit the ball hard. In the third inning, Davis hit a 108.9 mph screamer to Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette for an out.

While spring training results at the plate or on the mound rarely matter, especially early in the season, it's a major positive for the Pirates that Davis has been ripping the ball at the plate so far.

Pirates third baseman Jared Triolo who was strong last season hitting .298/.388/.398 in 208 plate appearances continues his hot start to the spring, going 2-for-2 at the plate.

Despite the eight runs allowed, a majority of the Pirates pitchers on Monday had solid performances with Braxton Ashcraft, Colin Selby, Wily Peralta, Chris Gau, Justin Meis, and Brad Case all had scoreless innings.

Sean Sullivan struggled in his time on the mound, allowing four earned runs across three hits and one walk. Kade McClure also had a tough time in his two-thirds of an inning allowing two runs on two hits and a walk.

The Pirates will be back in action on Tuesday at 1:05 p.m. in Bradenton as they host the Atlanta Braves. The game will not be televised but can be heard on 100.1 FM/KDKA-AM 1020.
