Pirates and Tigers, game time 1:05pm. Coverage on MLB.TV and on MLB Network. Nick Kingham starts for the Pirates, followed by Felipe Rivero and George Kontos. After that the bullpen competition resumes, with Edgar Santana, Kyle Crick and Jack Leathersich.
In injury news, Joe Musgrove thinks he’ll open the season with the Pirates. He’s slated to throw three innings against minor leaguers on Friday. A.J. Schugel isn’t doing as well. He’s not throwing and there’s no timetable for him to return from shoulder soreness. On the Kevin Siegrist front:
