The Pirates have a split-squad today, and former Oriole Garrett Atkins is with their other squad playing the Tampa Bay Rays in Port Charlotte. Brian Burres also pitched yesterday for the Pirates, so we won't see him throw either.
First base prospect Joe Mahoney, who fouled a ball off the inside of his right knee during yesterday's intrasquad game, was scratched from going on the trip to Bradenton, but he is feeling much better and will work out at Ed Smith Stadium today.
"I'm going to go out and try to do as much as I can and get the blood flowing a little bit," Mahoney said. "I was happy with how it feels. I'm hoping to be running around tomorrow."
