Pirates Spring Training 2012, Grapefruit League Schedule: Charlie Morton Makes Debut

Here's a look ahead at the Pirates' Spring Training schedule for this week.

On Monday at 1:05 p.m., the Bucs host the Phillies. Charlie Morton, who had hip surgery in the offseason, will make his first appearance in Spring Training. Brad Lincoln and Kyle McPherson were also supposed to pitch, but Lincoln has calf tightness and McPherson has a "dead arm." The calf tightness doesn't sound like anything serious; let's hope the dead arm isn't either.

As is fairly common in Spring Training, the Bucs will play their game Tuesday afternoon without some team members. Also on Tuesday at 1:05 p.m., some members of the Bucs will travel to St. Petersburg to play against the Netherlands in the International Baseball Tournament.

After an off day on Tuesday, the Bucs will travel to face the Orioles on Wednesday and Twins on Thursday. Both games are at 1:05 p.m.
