Every interesting Pirates pitcher to take mound vs. Rays

New, comments
USA TODAY Sports

A.J. Burnett, Wandy Rodriguez (whose start against the Orioles yesterday was postponed) and Gerrit Cole will all pitch against the Rays today (1:05 at McKechnie). Also taking the hill will be Jason Grilli, Mark Melancon and Jared Hughes. So, essentially, six of the eight or nine most interesting pitchers in the organization.

The Pirates' lineup:

Starling Marte LF
Neil Walker 2B
Andrew McCutchen CF
Pedro Alvarez 3B
Garrett Jones 1B
Gaby Sanchez DH
Brad Hawpe RF
Michael McKenry C
Clint Barmes SS

Russell Martin is out of the lineup again with minor shoulder soreness.
