The Pittsburgh Pirates will trot out a semi-representative lineup in their Grapefruit League home opener.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are set to face the Miami Marlins in Grapefruit League action today, with the game serving as the Pirates’ GL Home Opener at LECOM Park.
For the game, the Pirates will trot out what one might call a “semi-representative” lineup:

Game time is at 1:05 PM. There will be no television coverage — the game can be heard on 93.7 The Fan and the Pirates Radio Network.
However, I will have video of the game via a video partner covering the game. These videos are short in length - usually a few highlights here and there - but hey, it’s baseball! I’ll update the post when I have them or you can follow me on Twitter.
UPDATED: as promised, here are the videos:
