MLB: Spring Training-Boston Red Sox at Pittsburgh Pirates Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Pirates will face the Toronto Blue Jays today in Grapefruit League action. First pitch is at 1:05 PM.

The Pittsburgh Pirates are back at it today, facing the Blue Jays, who will not be playing Vladimir Guerrero JR, unfortunately.

Notables:

  • Kyle Crick and Luis Escobar will see their first Grapefruit League action.
  • Aaron Slegers, who is fighting for a 25-man bullpen spot, will go again after giving up three hits across two innings his last time out - though he did avoid allowing a run.
  • Jason Martin and Pablo Reyes will get some run once again — those two are tied with JB Shuck for the most At-bats thus far in Spring Training with seven each.
  • It was announced today that Elias Diaz is battling a virus while being looked at week-to-week. Jacob Stallings slides in as the backstop today.
