Spring training thread: Kuhl looks to nail down #4 spot

MLB: Spring Training-Boston Red Sox at Pittsburgh Pirates Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

The Pirates and Rays move to McKechnie Field for a 1:05 PM start. Chad Kuhl takes the mound. The Pirates are being coy, saying Kuhl doesn’t have a rotation spot locked up, but it’s hard to see how that doesn’t happen. He’ll be followed by A.J. Schugel, who should have been in the running for a bullpen spot but isn’t having a good spring, and Josh Lindblom, who shouldn’t have been in the running but is pitching well. Ivan Nova is scheduled to throw 100 pitches in a minor league game.

The lineup isn’t available and I’m not going to have a chance to post it later.
