Pirates Spring Training 2012: Bucs To Take On Red Sox, Twins, Rays This Weekend

Here's the Pirates' schedule as they continue their slate of Spring Training games this weekend. On Friday at 7:05, they play the Red Sox in Fort Myers (MLB.tv, MLB Network, MLB.com). Shairon Martis, a minor-league free agent who will probably be in the Indianapolis rotation this season, will start the game for the Bucs.

Here's the Pirates' lineup against Boston.

Jose Tabata, RF
Clint Barmes, SS
Andrew McCutchen, CF
Garrett Jones, 1B
Nick Evans, DH
Pedro Alvarez, 3B
Brandon Boggs, LF
Eric Fryer, C
Jordy Mercer, 2B

On Saturday, the Bucs host the Twins at 1:05 pm (ROOT Sports). New pitcher A.J. Burnett, who recently suffered an injury in a bunting drill, will return to camp that day, although he won't be pitching anytime in the next couple weeks.

On Sunday, the Bucs travel to Port Charlotte to take on the Rays at 1:05 (and don't forget that Daylight Savings means that game will be an hour earlier than you think).
