Gamethread: Pirates visit the Phillies

Elsa

Gametime is 1:05pm in Clearwater.

The Pirates continue looking at some of the pitchers on the fringe, as lefty Adam Wilk (pictured) gets the start.

As noted in the thread yesterday, James Santelli won a SABR Analytics Research Award for his article on defensive shifts at Pirates Prospects.  Considering that the competition included Fangraphs, Baseball America and the Washington Post (?!), it's an impressive achievement for the author and the site.
