Major League Baseball is preparing for the big move North to start out the season, but there are still a few more games to be played in the spring training leagues. The Pirates have six more games left on their Grapefruit League schedule, and they will play four of them this weekend.
The first game is on Friday at 1:05 pm against the Tampa Bay Rays in Bradenton. Here is the lineup for Friday's game.
Today's lineup vs. TB: Tabata RF, Navarro LF, McCutchen CF, McGehee 3B, Barajas C, Walker 2B, Hague 1B, Barmes SS, McKenry C, Watson P— Pittsburgh Pirates (@Pirates) March 30, 2012
On Saturday the Pirates will split their team up, playing two split squad games against the Baltimore Orioles and Minnesota Twins. Both of those games start at 1:05 pm. The Pirates will be at home against the Orioles, while they take on the Twins at their place in Ft. Myers.
Finally, the team will be back together on Sunday when they take on the Toronto Blue Jays. That game will also start at 1:05 pm and will be played in Dunedin.
