Spring training thread: Cervelli returns against Jays

MLB: Washington Nationals at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Ivan Nova and Francisco Cervelli will both make their first exhibition appearances as the Pirates host Toronto at 1:05 PM. Cervelli had been out of action due to discomfort in his foot. Adam Frazier will also return from a brief absence due to a minor hand injury. If you want a preview of a large part of the Pirates’ bullpen, this is the game. Scheduled to follow Nova are Tony Watson, Daniel Hudson, Felipe Rivero, Juan Nicasio, Antonio Bastardo, A.J. Schugel and Pat Light. The starting lineup:

  1. Adam Frazier, LF
  2. Josh Harrison, 2B
  3. Andrew McCutchen, RF
  4. Francisco Cervelli, C
  5. Joey Terdoslavich, DH
  6. Jordy Mercer, SS
  7. Jose Osuna, 1B
  8. Austin Meadows, CF
  9. Phil Gosselin, 3B
