Pirates Spring Training 2012, Grapefruit League Schedule: Bucs Start With Two Games Against Jays

Here's a look at the Pirates' Spring Training schedule as games open this weekend. The Pirates play an intrasquad game at McKechnie Field in Bradenton at noon Friday. As long as everyone stays healthy, what happens in that game won't mean a whole lot, but you can check out more information about that here.

On Saturday, the Pirates head to Dunedin to take on the Blue Jays at 1:05. Then on Sunday, both teams will head to McKechnie and play there, starting at 1:05. Erik Bedard will start on Sunday. A.J. Burnett had also been scheduled to pitch that day, but Daniel Moskos will pitch those innings instead, as Burnett is currently shut down with an orbital fracture.

On Monday, the Bucs will travel to Sarasota to take on the Orioles. They'll then have home games against the Yankees and Blue Jays on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.
