Pirates Spring Workouts Begin Today

Full scale workouts begin today for the Pirates. Yesterday Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen  covered a lot of items including his future with the team. The former MVP told reporters he would like to end his career as a Pirate. McCutchen has two years left on his  contract with a one year option by the team. The Pirates ace Gerrit Cole threw a bullpen session on Monday.  Cole was suffering from pain on his right side.   It was inflammation  of his  rib cage.   After 20-pitches, Cole said he was fine.
