This one is at 7:05, and it'll be on MLB.tv and MLB Network. Shairon Martis will start for the Pirates, so this will be my first chance to get a look at him as a Pirate. Martis doesn't have much of a shot at making the team out of camp, but he probably does have a better chance than most minor-league free agents of helping the big-league team beyond this year, so he's worth watching. Martis won't even be 25 until the end of March, and he struck out more than a batter an inning at Class AA Harrisburg last year. He also got bits of big-league experience in 2008 and 2009.

Here's the lineup.

Jose Tabata, RF
Clint Barmes, SS
Andrew McCutchen, CF
Garrett Jones, 1B
Nick Evans, DH
Pedro Alvarez, 3B
Brandon Boggs, LF
Eric Fryer, C
Jordy Mercer, 2B
