The Pirates' matchup against the Twins today (1:05 p.m.) will be broadcast on ROOT Sports and MLB.tv. Erik Bedard gets the start for the Bucs, with Jo-Jo Reyes, Joel Hanrahan, Jason Grilli and Juan Cruz also likely to pitch. Terry Doyle will start for the Twins. The Pirates' lineup:

Alex Presley LF
Nate McLouth RF
Yamaico Navarro SS
Rod Barajas C
Casey McGehee 3B
Jake Fox 1B
Gorkys Hernandez CF
Chase D'Arnaud 2B
Erik Bedard SP

A B-game involving Starling Marte, Nick Evans, Garrett Jones and Robbie Grossman is going on now, also against the Twins.

Charlie Morton will pitch for the Pirates Monday, which is great -- it looks like he'll be on track to start the season in the rotation, assuming all goes well. Neil Walker will be back in action tomorrow.
