Pirates Spring Training 2012, Grapefruit League Schedule: Bucs To Face Phillies, Rays, Twins

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

The Bucs take on the Phillies at 1:05 p.m. on Friday, and they'll have Kevin Correia on the hill to start the game. Here's their lineup.

Starling Marte CF
Clint Barmes SS
Casey McGehee 1B
Rod Barajas C
Neil Walker 2B
Pedro Alvarez 3B
Brandon Boggs RF
Gorkys Hernandez LF
Kevin Correia P

The Pirates host the Rays on Saturday, then face the Twins in Fort Myers on Sunday.

These are all teams the Pirates have seen before in their spring schedule. They're 0-2 against the Phillies and 0-1 against the Rays, and they're 1-1 against the Twins, including their 17-6 drubbing of Minnesota on Thursday.

The Bucs made a series of cuts on Thursday that included infiellders Chase D'Arnaud and Anderson Hernandez. They still have 48 players left in camp, however, which gives them a bit more than two weeks to essentially cut their roster in half. Expect those cuts to come fast and furious in the coming days.

Here's a full Pirates Spring Training schedule.
