Pirates | Clint Hurdle has an idea on next year's lineup

Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle acknowledged that there will be some tough competitions for roster spots next season, most notably at first base between 1Bs Garrett Jones and Gaby Sanchez, but he also has a decent idea of who his starters will be. "(Andrew) McCutchen will play center, (Clint) Barmes will play short, (Pedro) Alvarez will play third, (Neil) Walker will play second, and (catcher Michael) McKenry is going to be back," Hurdle said in his final pregame media session of the season. "Jones, going in, has added value to find a spot for him." OFs Alex Presley and Jose Tabata will have to fight off OFs Starling Marte and Travis Snider to regain their starting outfield roles.
