Well, this is it, the final Spring Training game for the Bucs, as we get ready for Thursday’s season opener in Chi-town against the Cubbies. But first, it’s finishing off with the second half of a back-to-back set with the Twins.

JT Brubaker gets the start and will look to make an impression before the season starts. With Chase De Jong sent down the minors, the current crop of Bucs starters will need to perform if they don’t want someone waiting in the wings to take their job.
