Pirates Spring Training 2012: Bucs Finish Spring Training With 9-20 Record

The Pirates finished Spring Training action with a 7-2 loss in Philadelphia Tuesday night. Cole Hamels dominated the Pirates in four scoreless innings, and Chris Leroux allowed three runs.

The Pirates made one roster move before the game, sending reliever Danny Moskos to Class AAA Indianapolis. The team still has additional moves left to make before reducing their active roster to 25 players before Opening Day. Two of those likely will be sending A.J. Burnett and Charlie Morton to the disabled list. After that, they'll still have to reduce the roster by one, probably by sending reliever Jared Hughes to the minors, although Leroux and Matt Hague aren't assured of roster spots either.

The Bucs finish Spring Training with a Grapefruit League-worst 9-20 record. Fortunately, Spring Training games don't mean a whole lot.

They'll take on the Phillies yet again, this time in Pittsburgh, for Opening Day on Thursday at 1:35 p.m.
